  • Notify all Oracle ILOM users of the scheduled firmware update and ask them to close all client sessions until the firmware update is complete.

  • The firmware update process takes several minutes to complete, during this time no other Oracle ILOM tasks should be performed.

  1. Download the latest software update available for your server from the My Oracle Support (MOS) web site.

    If necessary, refer to the documentation provided with your server for instructions for obtaining software updates from MOS.

    Note - The latest Oracle ILOM firmware version available for your server is included in the latest software patch that is posted on MOS for your server.
