Installing Updates Using Other Methods

In addition to using Oracle Hardware Installation Assistant and My Oracle Support, you can install firmware and software updates using one of the following methods:

  • Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center – You can use Ops Center Enterprise Controller to automatically download the latest firmware from Oracle, or firmware can be loaded manually into the Enterprise Controller. In either case, Ops Center can install the firmware onto one or more servers, blades, or blade chassis.

    For information, go to:


  • Oracle Hardware Management Pack You can use the fwupdate CLI Tool within the Oracle Hardware Management Pack software to update firmware within the system.

    For information, refer to the Oracle Hardware Management Pack Documentation Library at:


  • Oracle ILOM – You can use the Oracle ILOM web interface or command-line interface to update Oracle ILOM and BIOS firmware.


    Caution  -  If you use Oracle ILOM to update to system software release 1.6, do not use a file on the local server. Instead use a file on a server supporting one of the following protocols: TFTP, FTP, HTTP, or HTTPS. For subsequent updates (after system software release 1.6 is installed) you can use any supported method.
