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.
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
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.
