I've acquired a T410 server and am seeking to update all firmware and BIOS on it to the latest but am having a nightmare of unsuccessful attempts as each method I try to follow doesn't work out. These are the things I've tried:
This has been incredibly frustrating - I'm considering giving up hope and throwing out the server after all. I need to do the firmware updates to be able to use the server.
Does anyone have any other suggestions / options for how to do the updates? Happy to provide more information on any of the methods I've tried so far.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I suggest that you start by updating the iDRAC and LCC through the iDRAC web server. If you open the iDRAC web page there is a section labeled Update and Rollback, or something similar. You can update the iDRAC and LCC on that page by uploading the files from your computer to the iDRAC through the browser. It will only accept specific image files.
On the server support page you should be able to locate the iDRAC firmware under the Embedded Server Management category and the LCC under LifeCycle Controller Legacy. You will need to extract out the image files, I think they are .d7 and .usc file types. Those are the only file types that will be accepted.
Once the iDRAC and LCC are at the most current revision I would try the repository again. The KB article linked near the top of your post should have instructions for creating a repository.
