Important Information

Important Information for Update Packages for Microsoft Windows

* Do not run other applications while executing Dell Update Packages.

* When upgrading the BMC/ESM firmware or the BP firmware on PowerEdge x8xx or x9xx servers with the Windows Server 2003 R2 IPMI driver installed, the update may take up to 20 minutes to complete.

To speed up the time it takes to perform such updates on PowerEdge x8xx or x9xx servers, you can uninstall the R2 IPMI driver before performing the firmware upgrade operation using the command "rundll32 ipmisetp.dll, RemoveTheDevice" from a command prompt. After the firmware flash is complete, you can install the driver again by executing the command "rundll32 ipmisetp.dll, AddTheDevice". On PowerEdge x9xx servers, the driver can be re-installed by performing a "Scan for hardware changes" in the Device Manager.

* When upgrading theBMC/ESM firmware on PowerEdge x8xx or x9xx servers with the Windows Server 2003 R2 IPMI driver installed, multiple time-out warning messages from source "IPMIDRV" with Event ID 1004 are logged in the System Log in the Event Viewer console.

These messages can be safely ignored. However, to prevent the messages from being logged, you can uninstall the R2 IPMI driver before performing the firmware upgrade operation using the command "rundll32 ipmisetp.dll, RemoveTheDevice" from a command prompt. After the firmware flash is complete, you can install the driver again by executing the command "rundll32 ipmisetp.dll, AddTheDevice". On PowerEdge x9xx servers, the driver can be re-installed by performing a "Scan for hardware changes" in the Device Manager.

For more information on this issue, including information on the cause of this issue, see the Microsoft KB article number 912596.
