OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter Version 5.2 User's Guide

Running firmware update may display an error message, The firmware repository file does not exist or is invalid.

While running the Firmware Update wizard, at cluster level, an error message may be displayed: The firmware repository file does not exist or is invalid. This may be due to a daily background process that was unable to download and cache the catalog file from the repository. This occurs if the catalog file is not reachable at the time the background process runs.

Resolution: After resolving any catalog connectivity issues that may exist, you can reinitiate the background process by changing the firmware repository location, and then setting it back to the original location. Allow about five minutes for the background process to complete. Ensure that there is no @ character present in the credential that is provided for the CIFS. Also, ensure that the DUP file exists in the share location.

Version Affected: All
