|Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM ) 3.0 Supplement for the Sun Blade X6275 M2 Server Module|
Before You Begin
Identify the version of ILOM that is currently running on your system. See Determining Current Firmware Versions.
Download the firmware image for your server from the product web site. See How to Download Firmware Updates.
Copy the firmware image to a server that can be access over the network using a supported protocol (TFTP, FTP, HTTP, HTTPS). You cannot host the image on the server being upgraded.
Obtain an ILOM user name and password that has Admin (a) role account privileges. You must have Admin (a) privileges to update the firmware on the system.
To verify that you have network connectivity to update the firmware, enter the following command at the ILOM prompt:
-> show /SP/network.
Note - The firmware update process takes about fifteen to twenty minutes to complete. During this time, do not perform other ILOM tasks. When the firmware update is complete, the system reboots automatically.
You can use either the network or the serial management port. These connection options are described in the Sun Blade X6275 M2 Installation Guide.
-> load –source supported_protocol://serverIP/ILOM-version-Sun_Blade_X6275M2.pkg
supported_protocol is the supported file transfer protocol (TFTP, FTP, HTTP, HTTPS) for the server that contains the update image file.
serverIP is the IP address of the server that contains the update image file.
version is the ILOM firmware version, for example:
A note about the firmware update process appears, followed by message prompts to load the image. The text of the note depends on your server platform.
Answer yes (y) or no (n), as appropriate.
The prompt to preserve the configuration appears.
If you answer yes (y) to the prompt, your existing ILOM configuration will be saved and that configuration will be restored when the update process is completed.
If you answer no (n) to the prompt, you are advanced to another platform–specific prompt.
Note - If you do not preserve the ILOM configuration before the firmware update, you must perform the initial ILOM setup procedures to reconnect to ILOM after the update process has finished.
A prompt to postpone the BIOS update appears.
If you answer yes (y) to the prompt, the system automatically updates the BIOS, if necessary, when updating the firmware.
If you answer no (n) to the prompt, the system postpones the BIOS update until the next time the system is powered off.
The system loads the specified firmware file and then automatically reboots to complete the firmware update.
Refer to the Sun Blade X6275 M2 Server Module Product Notes for firmware release information.
Note - If you are downgrading to an earlier firmware version, CPLD will not be downgraded (even if the firmware includes an earlier version of CPLD) and therefore the blade will not need to be reseated in the chassis.
If you did not preserve the ILOM configuration before the firmware update, you must perform the initial ILOM setup procedures to reconnect to ILOM. See the Sun Blade X6275 M2 Server Module Installation Guide for additional information.
Note - Both server nodes be should be running the same firmware version.
