iDRAC firmware update not listed

Found one R710 server in our OME overview that had iDRAC6 firmware 1.80 where 1.92 is available, but this server was listed as compliant system. Looks an incorrect overview, maybe someone can check whether the iDRAC firmware is checked automatically?

Also R710 systems with a V1.x BIOS revision are not shown with a possible BIOS update

jwillemsen,

What is the version of Dell catalog  ?

Do you see software inventory info for the iDRAC 6 device (Manage -> Devices) ? What is the firmware version for iDRAC 6 and BIOS listed ?

Thanks,

Re: iDRAC firmware update not listed

I have catalog JN61T/10/18/2012, systems have BIOS 2.0.13 or 1.3.6, or 2.2.10.All systems discovered using ws-man with idrac6, all running 1.92 as idrac firmware. One server has firmware 2.0.13, does show this as software inventory, but doesn't show that the bios could be updated

jwillemsen,

You can try couple of things:

From Manage -> System Updates, Click Advanced Settings and select Enable Downgrades option. Wait for about 2 minutes and  then select "Disable Downgrades" setting. This will update the compliance report.

Can you check if any new components shows up for the devices ?

Thanks,

Raj Shresta
