I want to create a bootable platform ISO to update firmware and the BIOS on a PowerEdge XR2 however DRM doesn't give me a XR2 platform as an option (XR11 and XR12 are listed). Any suggestions on what I should do?
Thanks for the reply, unfortunately I had tried that one - I tried again for to be sure. I know, on the page you sent me, it includes XR2 under Compatible Systems (XR11 and XR12 aren't listed) but I don't get the option in DRM (although I do get XR11 and XR12!)
So you know what I'm doing with DRM:
I select Add Repository
Add an Name
With Manual Repository Type selected I select Custom and Choose System
I'd hoped to see XR2 listed, but it isn't. (XR11 and XR12 are)
I've tried other Enterprise Catalogues (by selecting Base Catalog and, from there, a catalogue from the list). The oldest available (21.10.01) didn't have XR2. It does look like the list of systems available (supported?) is dependent on the catalog.
I guess another approach would be to download all the BIOS and Firmware updates from the Support page and manually update the ones that need updating. This seems a bit long winded and seems like the job DRM, along with the LCC and iDRAC, is supposed to do for me.
To move things on a bit - I created a repository (using DRM) for my XR2 using the Repository Type of Integration and Integration Type of iDRAC and created a catalog XML file. The XML file does not mention XR2. However, it does have the following section:
