Dell Servers Drivers Update

Jump to solution

Hi All,

 

We currently manage a range of Dell PowerEdge servers for our clients. I am in process of doing health checks on those systems. For this i need to know what are the driver versions which are currently installed on the server, and what are the version of drivers update.

I tried using Dell open manage and Dell online diagnostic utility. None of those were able to tell me installed versions of drivers and recommended updates for drivers.

Is there any other software utility from Dell which does that?

 

How can I achieve this?

 

Thanks

The large download will support nearly every Dell server shipped in the last 5 years, so it is handy if working with a variety of different models.  Other than that, you have only two options:

1.  Dell's Repository Manager - allows you to build an update utility for just the systems you choose, but it still must download the required files for those models ... can sometimes be faster to download SUU if you have very many different models.

2.  Download individual updates for each model to run separately.

I am sorry, perhaps I have been unable to convey my question properly to you.

 

For now, I am not looking to update and apply patches for drivers.

 

Fow now, I just want to know that, which device driver versions are currently installed on servers, and what latest versions are available at the moment. Just a sort of a check thing. Nothing to implement, nothing to update for now.

 

thanks

That Dell Server Updates disk that was posted above will do it, so will IT Assistant.

OUTSTREAM,

Please advice on the model Number of the Servers.

The link someone replied you with must be because your question never specified any model number.

From my understanding, for some models; you may download utilities or updates as CD iso files or packages designed with the floppy media in mind Smiley Happy

The link provided was for the very generic update DVD.  That means that pretty much any currently supported Dell server will work with it.  Currently I think that covers most 8th generation servers and later.

its just a different range of servers. As different clients have different servers. it all varies from PowerEdge 800 to PowerEdge 1600 or 2800 etc. So i was just looking for something generic that would work on all.
