Updated: August 2021

IMPORTANT - Install Latest OS Updates, Patches, and Firmware

Some product features are enabled only when the latest versions of operating systems, patches, and firmware are installed. To retain optimal performance, security, and stability, you must install the latest available operating systems, patches, and firmware.

To verify the server firmware version:

  1. Use Oracle ILOM to check your system firmware version.
    • From the web interface, click System Information > Summary, then view the System Firmware Version in the General Information table.
    • From the CLI, type: show /System/Firmware or version.

      For more details, refer to information about viewing system information and inventory in your server administration guide, which is available at https://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs.

  2. Ensure that the server firmware version is at the minimum required version, shown above, or a subsequent release, if available.
  3. If the required firmware (or newer) is not installed:
    1. Download the firmware from My Oracle Support at: https://support.oracle.com

      For more information, see: Supported Firmware

    2. Install the downloaded firmware.

      Refer to the information about performing firmware updates in the Oracle ILOM Administrators Guide for Configuration and Maintenance, which is available at https://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs. Ensure that you perform the preparatory steps described in that document before updating the firmware.

      Note -  Occasionally after installing the firmware, the Oracle ILOM web interface cannot display the power state correctly on the power control page. To correct this problem, clear your browser cache before logging in to the Oracle ILOM web interface.
