R720xd: Where's the BIOS 2.3.0 update?

Jump to solution

Not all of my machines run OMSA, so for some I use the stand-alone update packages. I have noticed that the BIOS update to 2.3.0 was installed on the R720xds running OMSA, but the Dell web page only has 2.2.3 listed, so where's the update package for 2.3.0?

(I am assuming it is JUST OMSA saying it is 2.3.0)

My money is on OMSA reporting the wrong information.

You could try installing 2.2.3 on one of the (allegedly) 2.3.0 machines. Before the flash begins the update package will report what it considers to be installed version. you will be able to cancel the install  after it reports this information (of course if it is is 2.30, it wont allow you to install 2.2.3)

Hi Andrea, you are wrong, OMSA has installed BIOS 2.3.0 on my 720xd.

The RPM containing the firmware was installed on 6 August and it was built by the Dell people on 17 July. The 2.2.3 version on the web site was released on 30 May.
