Hi Patrick, take care with those update. I have done these a week ago and notice no issue until 2 days. I don't know if those update ere the source of the issue that I have on 1 of my 2 enclosure.
I haven't done any updates myself (why fix what's not broken hehe!)Find the firmware to be flashed from Dell Support. Place the firmware
image in a location that is network-accessible by TFTP, FTP (user/password is OK),
or HTTP. Then issue the command (can be from a remote machine):
# ./ipmiflash [connection Info] bios|bmc|fcb ftp://user:pass@host:port/path/to/ROM
I too used an USB key to flash through DOS.PigLover - Hopefully will remember tonight but they do have a bugfix log in an Excel spreadsheet that I found with each revision.
How are people updating these? I tried using the webgui to update four nodes from a December 2010 build and it keeps failing image verification on five different firmware versions.
Good point. I have the worlds slowest IPMI (December 2010 firmware) running on all of the nodes in one of the C6100. MegaRAC branded. I tried force upgrading in the web GUI but it didn't work on any of the four nodes...Exactly my reason for wanting to see the change log. I have long believed that you should do firmware upgrades only when there is a good reason...but without the logs I don't know what might be lurking and purportedly fixed.
So I found what I was looking for in the package: FCB.00_1.20.121001_customerI do wish Dell provided a changelog...
Well used the Windows EXE and updated to BIOS 1.70 and BMC Firmware 1.30 one one of the nodes and it is now Dell branded and working fine! Issue I was having with connecting to remote iKVM session but this fixed it at least on the node I tried.
For remote iKVM, how's everyone get around with the expired SSL? Using Chrome or Firefox only?
Is there a way to update the self-signed SSL?
Instead, let’s revert IE to back to allowing those 512-bit keys. Run the following command from an elevated command prompt:
certutil -setreg chain\minRSAPubKeyBitLength 512
If you need/wish to revert back to the more secure setting, simply run this command:
certutil -setreg chain\minRSAPubKeyBitLength 1024
