iDRAC Firmware Update Leaves a Server in "iDRAC not ready" State


Article Summary: This article provides information on
iDRAC firmware update leaves a server in "iDRAC not ready" state.


Issue:

DRAC firmware update failure may cause the CMC (PowerEdge™ M1000e and VRTX) to report that the blade is in the "Firmware update in progress" state. This message can come from the CMC GUI and the CMC command line.


Solution:

Do not replace hardware. This will be resolved in a future iDRAC firmware update.


Work Around:

Perform any action that causes an iDRAC reset, including iDRAC reset, virtual reseat, physical re-seat of the blade.


Additional Information:

Normally the firmware update succeeds and resets the iDRAC, causing the iDRAC to negotiate with the CMC and report that it is in the "ready" state. When the firmware update failure occurs, the iDRAC is not alerting the CMC that firmware update mode has been exited. iDRAC will detect that the firmware update has failed and create an alert sent by the firmware update module to the IPMI module.
