Module ipmi_msghandler & ipmi_si fatal during firmware update on PowerEdge 1950 Gen II

Hi

Whilst updating the firmware of the Dell PowerEdge 1950 Gen II via the Dell firmware iso, I get the following:

[65/115] - Executing Systems-Management_Firmware_D8GP9_LN32_1.65_A00.bin
Collecting inventory...
FATAL: Module ipmi_msghandler not found.
FATAl: Module ipmi_si not found.

This issue is also carried to Ubuntu 16.04 as modules depending on ipmi_si are failing to load.

How can I solve this please

Hi,

What version of the kernel are you on? https://access.redhat.com/solutions/539073

Hi

I get this error when updating the firmware of the PowerEdge 1950 Gen II using the dell firmware iso that I boot from to perform such update.

On Ubuntu the kernel version is 4.4.0-65-generic

Hi Fabian,

I'm experiencing the same behaviour with a PowerEdge 1950 too.

Did you find a resolution for it?
