This procedure uses the Oracle ILOM command-line interface to update the system firmware. You can also update system firmware using the Oracle ILOM web interface. For web interface instructions, refer to the Oracle ILOM documentation at https://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs.
When you extract the files, the <image.pkg> file is in the Firmware/service-processor directory.

-> load -source protocol://server_IPaddress/<path_to_image>/<image.pkg>
Where protocol can be: http, https, ftp, tftp, sftp, scp
For example, if you are accessing the server through a tftp server with an IP address of 198.51.100.123 in a directory called ilom/jdoe and with the <image.pkg> named firmware.pkg, enter the following command:
-> load -source tftp://198.51.100.123/tftpboot/ilom/jdoe/firmware.pkg
The following information is displayed:
An upgrade takes several minutes to complete. Oracle ILOM will enter a special mode to load new firmware. No other tasks can be performed in Oracle ILOM until the firmware upgrade is complete and Oracle ILOM is reset.
You can choose to postpone the server BIOS upgrade until the next server power off. If you do not do that, you should perform a clean shutdown of the server before continuing.
Are you sure you want to load the specified file? y
Preserve existing SP configuration (y/n)? y
This prompt preserves your existing Oracle ILOM settings after the firmware update is complete.
Preserve existing BIOS configuration (y/n)? y
This prompt preserves your existing BIOS configuration settings after the firmware upgrade is complete.
Delay BIOS upgrade until the next poweroff or reset (y/n)? y
Answer "Y" (yes) to the Delay BIOS Upgrade question and, if the host is ON and there are host components to be updated, the host remains powered on and the host component updates are deferred until the next time the host powers off and powers on (next reset/reboot).
Answer "N" (no) to the Delay BIOS Upgrade question and, if the host is ON and there are host components to be updated, the host is forced OFF so that host component updates can be applied immediately. After Oracle ILOM reboots, the host is powered on automatically if it was forced off.
