Caution - Loss of server functionality. Do not interrupt the SP update process. The SP update process, which includes two resets, must finish without interruption.
Beginning with software release v1.2 (SW v1.2), the field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is updated during the SP firmware update. The FPGA update occurs automatically. This automatic update can change the behavior of the SP firmware update process by potentially increasing its duration. First, the SP is updated and boots. Then, if needed, the FPGA is updated (6–8 minutes), and the blade is power cycled. Do not interrupt the update process. After the first SP reset, wait approximately 12 minutes before performing any server operation, including powering on or resetting the server.
