  • In-Band (Operating System) — Allows you to update all components on the systems.
  • Out-of-Band (iDRAC) — Allows you to update only the BIOS, certain firmware, and certain applications.
  • NOTE: You can set one of the update modes as the default mode but the actual update mode depends on the protocol used and the components that are being updated. For more information, see System Update Use Case Scenarios.

You can also set your preference to reboot the target server after an update by selecting the After update, if required, reboot the target server option. If this option is selected, the After update, if required, reboot the target server is selected in the System Update Task wizard.
