OME reporting servers are non-compliant for NIC firmware, yet looking at OMSA, NIC is at current load. All
OME shows current version: Broadcom NetXtreme II Gigabit Ethernet (MAC ID) Firmware 08.07.25, available version 08.07.26
OMSA shows, for the same MAC ID,
08.07.26 bc 7.10.0 NCSI 2.0.13
Why does OME not "see" the current version and report the system as compliant?
Hi, thanks for the query.
Possible to restart OMSA services on target server and then refresh inventory in OME? Please see if problem gets addressed.
The server has been rebooted. It has been removed from inventory and re-scanned. This same condition exists on several servers and is firmware specific. The OMSA load on the servers vary from 8.3 to 8.5. OME is 2.2
Servers are either R710s or R715s, running either ESXi 5.1 or 6.0.

Ok, I found the setting, accessible during a reboot. I have always left that off, and updates have always been upgraded to compliant until this firmware. (for over 6 years) Something changed ?
Ok, so that was it. Once the CSIOR was enabled, OME found the NIC compliant. So now the question is, why have 100+ Dell R710, R715, R720, & R730 servers all been inventoried successfully for several upgrades over the last 6 years? This is the only firmware package to not be recognized.
It depends on whether you have used in-band (OMSA) based update or Out-of-band (idrac) based update for the firmware.
Can you please confirm what method you have used in-band/out-of-band for update?
