Hi seang86s,Does anyone have the older versions of the BMC firmware handy? They don't seem to be available on Dell's website anymore.
Looking for 1.19, but any version below 1.3 would probably do.
Thanks to you both. It seems that the Bare Metal install from Microsoft System Center does not work with the Dell branded BMC firmware. I updated 3 nodes on my C6100 to 1.3 before testing this feature out and SCVMM never finishes the "Deep Discovery" when you try to kick off the install. My 4th node was never flashed because I didn't have any memory for it until recently. Lo and behold, with the 1.19 MegaRAC firmware, SCVMM has no trouble with "Deep Discovery" and kicks off a bare metal install just fine. I downgraded one other node and it too works fine now. 1.32 which was release a day or two ago also doesn't work. Now, I have to figure out the latest MegaRAC firmware that does work.
i'm on the same boat as you are. It seems like we have to update via DOS as Windows executable doss not work. you are lucky to have 1.62 my BIOS is 1.04 which was the first release and I'm having issues to make it to work with 10GB Ethernet NICs. Other nodes with 1.5 BIOS version works fine, I will be forced to update one node and see how that works.I'm trying to update the BIOS on a few c6100 nodes I've just received to v1.70 but I'm having some issues. I've seen this mentioned in other threads, although either I have glanced over the solution or no one has explained how they fixed it:
The c6100s I received all have BIOS v1.62, which isn't on Dell's official list of previous versions. Maybe its something custom for a DCS customer?
In DOS, I can force-flash v1.70, but I really want to avoid bricking anything.
Has anyone else received a c6100 with BIOS v1.62? Any ideas on how to proceed getting it up-to-date?
Thanks in advance.
The default user/password for the Dell-branded BMC is root/root.I did not upgrade the BMC as last time I did it it changed the GUI to Dell like Style and i was unable to login, too me a while to figure out a way to take BMC image backup from different node and apply it on the effected node to revert the image back
