When updating the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) service processor (SP) firmware using Oracle System Assistant, a login prompt appears. To perform the firmware update, you must log in as a user who is either an Administrator, or as a user with advanced (aucro) role privileges.
Releases 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4.4, 1.5, 1.6, and 1.8
This is not a defect. This is expected behavior.
For instructions on how to use Oracle System Assistant to update the Oracle ILOM service processor firmware, see "Setting Up Software and Firmware" in the Sun Server X3-2 Administration Guide.
