Dump/Save flash (iDRAC5/6)

Jump to solution

Is it possible to save/dump the flash/firmware memory?  It's a simple matter to upgrade (e.g. racadm fwupdate), or get the configs (racadm getconfig), but I want to get the actual firmware image from a system.

Thanks!

Understand the concern, at this current time and place, the option is not available and haven't seen it on any  lists for future updates as well.  

Have a good day!

Good morning, zenfish.

There isn't a way to get a firmware image from a DRAC. You can export the DRAC settings, but no image.

Thanks for the quick answer... so you're basically saying there's no way to tell if someone has modified my firmware?  (I can ask the firmware for the version, but if the firmware is modified, it could tell me anything.)  It'd be nice to not have to trust the firmware to police itself.
