Re: Downgrade firmware Poweredge m1000e, it's possible and s
Do you have redundant CMCs or only one? I thought the iKVM took up the second CMC slot. If you have only one CMC then failover or changeover commands will do nothing. You need to use something like racadm racreset to restart the CMC. racadm racreset will restart the CMC racadm racresetcfg will restore default configuration, there is a big difference between the two commands.
There is an issue that can occur where the temporary folder created for updates becomes full and causes updates to time out. Restarting the CMC should clear the temporary folder. I'm not aware of a method to increase the time out threshold.
If the issue persists then the iKVM may need to be replaced.
