Oh no, I really goofed. After flashing the BMC I realized this is for the SD1Q, not the D51PH! This one comes up as not passing the self-test and my processors are screaming hot. It did reset the password to admin/admin, so we know this. Does anyone have the BMC firmware for D51PH-1ULH? I will repost. Live and learn.
I have this file but it's too large to attach here. Send me a PM and I'll email it to you.

I feel lucky for downloading it: they took the whole product page down.

If it's smaller than 2GB, you can use wetransfer.com. I've used it several times before and a friend of mine uses it for audition submissions.

This worked for me as well for a D51PH-1ULH, very helpful.

In case it helps anyone else:
1. Download Storcli from Broadcom's website and 12G-EXPANDER_FW-Broadcom_1.0.8.zip from Quanta's website.
2. Copy storcli.efi along with the contents of 12G-EXPANDER_FW-Broadcom_1.0.8.zip onto a FAT32 USB stick.
3. Boot into the board's EFI shell.
4. Identify the expander number with storcli /c0 /eall show. It should be number 0, i.e., e0 for the next step.
5. Run storcli.efi /c0 /e0 download src=S2PH_LSI_FW_v1.08.fw.

Before updating the expander's firmware, I had already updated the D51PH-1ULH's BMC and BIOS from the Broadwell package. I did this with a SAS3008 installed, with IR firmware. I updated the HBA to IT firmware after updating the expander.
What version of the Storcli.efi do you have? The ones I've tried do not see the 3008 controller
. Thanks.
