Fixes:
Fix for issues that cause iDRAC7 sluggish responsiveness after a prolonged period of time (approx 45-100 days, depending on the usage). In some cases, if the iDRAC is not reset, the iDRAC may become unresponsive and requires a server AC Power on reset. This issue exists on firmware releases 1.50.50 and later on all 12th generation PowerEdge servers.
- If the system has iDRAC Express license, then you cannot make changes in the Alert Settings page with iDRAC7 Firmware 1.50.50 or later. This issue is now fixed in iDRAC7 Firmware 1.56.55 and you can make changes in the Alert Settings page.
- When you use the ConnectRFSISOImage WSMAN command to attach an ISO image through NFS share type, the command does not work. However, it works for CIFS share type. This issue is fixed and it supports both NFS and CIFS share types.
