Lifecycle Controller firmware update fails

Jump to solution

I'm trying to apply Lifecycle-Controller_Application_F0D50_LN32_1.5.2.32_A00.BIN on our R610s since it was listed as an urgent update. The systems are running SLES11 SP1 and I get the following error on all the machines I've tried it on:

# ./Lifecycle\-Controller_Application_F0D50_LN32_1.5.2.32_A00.BIN

Is there any solution to this?

Hi Sven,

This can occur if the update is using up the whole temporary partition, try running the following ipmitool command until it returns a 0x00 response, this should recover the partition and allow the update to work.

Linux

ipmitool raw 0x06 0x05 0x64 0x52 0x45 0x4D 0x24 0x73 0x74 0x38

Response: 0x00 0x00

ipmitool raw 0x30 0xac 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00

Response : 0x00 0x00

Thanks,

I see the same error on a Windows Server 2008 R710.

Any Suggestions?

Did you ever find a windows based solution for this?  I'm getting the same error when trying to update the lifecycle controller on a T410 and my searches haven't turned up much.

thx

The instructions on how to do this fully are located at:

http://www.dell.com/support/troubleshooting/us/en/19/KCS/KcsArticles/ArticleView?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&doc...

The instructions are for both Windows (MS-DOS) and Linux.

It looks like I'll have to boot into another OS to get this done anyway since the IPMItools don't seem to work under 64 bit windows.  Seems like there should be a better way to resolve this.  Thanks for the info.

I have the same issue, but seem to remember that the partition / memory size was changed in a early version of the lifecycle controller. Can Anyone from dell confirm this? And if so what version & where can it be downloaded from as the site now only shows the last 2 or 3 versions.

Have you tried the LC repair package via the idrac6 GUI instead of the DUP?

LC repair package via iDRAC works a treat
