Update the Device Firmware From the Actions Panel (Web)

The System Firmware Update property for the host server or CMM is viewable and configurable from the Actions panel in the web interface Summary page.

Before You Begin

Note - Alternatively, you can launch the firmware update process from the web interface: ILOM Administration > Maintenance > Firmware Upgrade page. You can also launch the firmware update process from the Oracle ILOM CLI. For details, see the topics in the Related Information section following this procedure.

To initiate the firmware update process from the Actions panel on the web interface Summary page:

  1. Determine the current firmware version installed on the server SP or CMM.

    From the web interface, click System Information > Summary and view the System Firmware Version Installed value in the General Information table.

  2. Open a new web browser tab or window and navigate to the following site to download the Oracle ILOM firmware image:

    For detailed instructions on downloading software updates from the My Oracle Support web site, see Broken Link (Target ID: Z4000CC01291415).

    Note - Updating the system firmware image on a managed device to a prior firmware release is not recommended. However, if an earlier firmware release is required, Oracle ILOM will support the firmware update process to any prior firmware release that is available from the download site.

  3. Place the firmware image on a server supporting one of the following protocols: TFTP, FTP, HTTP, HTTPS.

    For web interface firmware updates, you should copy the image to the system on which the Oracle ILOM web browser is running.

  4. To update the Oracle ILOM firmware image from the Actions panel in the web interface Summary page, click System Information Summary, and do the following:
    1. In the Actions panel, click the Update button for System Firmware Update.

      The Firmware Upgrade page appears.

    2. Click Enter Upgrade Mode in the Firmware Upgrade page.

      An Upgrade Verification dialog box appears, indicating that other users who are logged in will lose their session when the update process is complete.

    3. In the Upgrade verification dialog box, click OK to continue.

      The Firmware Upgrade page appears.

  5. Perform the following actions:
    1. Specify the image location by performing one of the following:
      • Click Browse to select the location of the firmware image you want to install.
      • If supported on your system, click Specify URL. Then, in the text field, type the URL that will locate the firmware image.
    2. Click the Upload button to upload and validate the file, and then wait for the file to upload and validate.

      The Firmware Verification page appears.

  6. Enable any of the following options:
    • Preserve Configuration – Enable this option if you want to save your existing configuration in Oracle ILOM and restore that existing configuration after the update process is complete.
    • Delay BIOS upgrade until next server power-off – Enable this option if you want to postpone the BIOS upgrade until the next time the system reboots.

      Note - The Delay BIOS upgrade option appears only for firmware updates on Oracle x86 servers.

      Note - For Oracle x86 servers, Oracle ILOM prompts you to preserve the current BIOS properties on the managed device. If you answer Yes, Oracle ILOM will preserve the current BIOS properties after completing the firmware update. If you answer No, Oracle ILOM will set the BIOS properties to factory defaults after completing the firmware update.

  7. Click Start Upgrade to start the upgrade process, or click Exit to cancel the process.

    When you click Start Upgrade, the upload process starts, and a prompt to continue the process appears.

  8. At the prompt, click OK to continue.

    The Update Status page appears providing details about the update progress. When the update indicates 100%, the firmware upload is complete.

    When the upload is complete, the system automatically reboots.

    Note - The Oracle ILOM web interface might not refresh properly after the update is complete. If the Oracle ILOM web page is missing information or displays an error message, you might be viewing a cached version of the page from the version previous to the update. Clear your browser cache and refresh your browser before continuing.

  9. Reconnect to the Oracle ILOM SP or CMM web interface. Click System Information > Summary to verify that the firmware version on the SP or CMM corresponds to the firmware version you installed.
