RE: iDRAC FWUpdate with racadm fails

Issue occurs with racadm 8.0.1, 8.1, and 8.2 and have tested multiple iDRAC versions,, and

The error occurs whether running the command through several switches or with a management station plugged directly into the dedicate iDRAC management port.

Issue also occurs with both of the following commands:


C:\RACADM>racadm.exe -r -i update -f firmimg.d7

        The Copying Operation has begun,

        This might take several minutes to complete, depending on the network.

        Do not interrupt the operation.

ERROR: Unable to transfer update file to the RAC.

ERROR:  The Copy Operation Failed.

        The network connection may have been interrupted.

        Ensure connectivity to iDRAC and try again.


C:\RACADM>racadm.exe -r -i fwupdate -p -u -d c:\firmimg.d7

Transferring firmware image file to the RAC. Please wait...
