which file to download and and name as firming.d5????

If the firmware reported by the DRAC card does not match the newest firmware on the www.support.dell.com page, update it. To update the firmware, download the latest firmware image (named “firmimg.d5”) from the www.support.dell.com link described previously. Then, in the DRAC GUI, navigate to the Remote Access page and click the Update tab. Click the Browse button on this page and select the firmware image you just downloaded. Then click the Update button.

RE: which file to download and and name as firming.d5????

Sorry for such a late reply. Thanksgiving holidays and everyone has been out on vacation.

If you are uploading from within the DRAC web interface, it is looking for the image file that is extracted from the package when you select "Operating System : Not Applicable" - from the support site. This is an .EXE file, you run it and then select a directory to extract. Looking in that directory you will then see the firmware image file which is the source for the upload/update.

Which exact system is this ? I can help point you to the right file and give some more detailed step by step instructions, if you haven't already updated the system.

For example - for the 2950 here is the package - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=555&l=en&s=biz&releaseid=R209365&SystemID=PWE_2950&servicetag=&os=NAA&osl=en&deviceid=8735&devlib=0&typecnt=0&vercnt=6&catid=-1&impid=-1&formatcnt=5&libid=36&typeid=-1&dateid=-1&formatid=-1&fileid=293703

Extract that package to a folder and it will contain the "firmimg.d5" file.

Hope that helps.
