IPMIflash is a command-line application that provides an alternative method to update Oracle ILOM SP firmware and BIOS remotely over the management network or locally from the server. A version of IPMIflash is provided as part of the Hardware Management Pack. It can be installed if your system does not already have IPMIflash installed.
In Oracle Solaris 11.3 SRU 18, additional security has been added to the Oracle Hardware Management Pack for Oracle Solaris version of IPMIflash (version 220.127.116.11) in the form of a new secure interface called ORCLTLS. This supports running IPMIflash commands using the TLS protocol and provides additional security over the LANPLUS protocol used in IPMI 2.0. This new interface added by Oracle is in addition to all of the standard interfaces included with the generic version of IPMIflash and is supported with versions of Oracle ILOM starting with 18.104.22.168.
For more information on using the IPMIflash command from the host, refer to the command line help and the man page.
