Our automation tools are having issues downloading BIOS packages for certain Dell models. The author says that the Dell source XML is corrupt. This has been reported by other users as well on TechNet.
Looks like these models are having issues so far:
Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet 7202 Latitude 5250 Latitude 5450 Latitude 5495 Latitude 5550 Latitude 7250 Latitude 7285 Latitude E5250 Latitude E5450 Latitude E5550 OptiPlex 5055 A-Series OptiPlex 5055 Ryzen CPU Precision Rack 7910 Precision Tower 5810 Precision Tower 7810 Precision Tower 7910 Venue 11 Pro 7130 Venue 11 Pro 7130 vPro XPS 15 9575
Not sure where to get support for this, if anyone knows please chime in.
On http://ftp.dell.com/catalog/ the file if VERY UP TO DATE, but when downloading it, there are old data there. New releases of BIOS versions are now on support pages for each model but in CATALOGPC.XML, there is still old information and we are not able to download new BIOS versions using our automatic upgrade process that is based on CATALOGPC.XML from Dell.
If vendor does not care, then how can we have our systems secure ?
