It is highly recommended that you update your system to the latest software release before you use the system. Software releases often include bug fixes, and updating ensures that your server software is compatible with the latest server firmware and other component firmware and software.
You can get the latest available system BIOS, Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM), firmware, and drivers from Oracle by performing the Get Updates task in Oracle System Assistant. An Internet connection is required. For instructions on how to use the Get Updates task, see the Oracle X3 Series Servers Administration Guide at https://www.oracle.com/goto/x86admindiag/docs.
You can also download the latest firmware and software updates from My Oracle Support at https://support.oracle.com. For information about downloading firmware and software from My Oracle Support, see “Getting Server Firmware and Software Updates” in the Sun Server X3-2 Installation Guide.
