VRTX PERC8 Firmware

I was given a VRTX chassis.  I have been working on it slowly getting it to work.  I have been updating firmware and such.

I have been trying to update the shared PERC 8 firmware.  I upload the new image file.  Its shows me it can upgrade.  It processes for a few min and then says update finished  but when it refreshes it shows the old firmware.  I have power cycled everything.

I am trying to go from 23.8.2-0005 to 23.12.56-0086.

I have been successful in all other firmware upgrades but this one thing.

thanks

RE: VRTX PERC8 Firmware

Hi,

What method are you using to update it? You may want to try booting to our Linux live image and running the linux update package

RE: VRTX PERC8 Firmware

I will try that software again.

I am going to the CMC --> Storage --> update --> and then uploading the exe firmware.  It will then tell me its going to update from old to new, then process then say finished.

I will look at the Linux Boot CD, but I am unsure how I will boot the chassis to linux,  This is the shared PERC8 that is giving me issues, not a normal PowerEdge.
