Important notes

Firmware check is not applicable, hence updates will be triggered even when the versions in the system and in the SFUP package are same.

Do NOT interrupt or reboot or remove power from your system during the update process. Doing so may render your system inoperable.

Do NOT attempt to down rev the system software once loaded on to the system. Doing so may render your system inoperable.

All updates provided in this package are installed using the Windows and Linux operating environment only.

Do not modify any of the script files. The scripts as written will provide the most reliable update experience.

System software requirements

To update the system software stack to the versions included in this update package, the system software stack currently installed on the target server system MUST meet the following, or else the update may fail:

  • System BIOS: R01.01.0004 or later
  • ME Firmware: 04.04.04.058
  • BMC Firmware: 2.87.be6beeae or later

Pre-requisites before running Windows and Linux scripts - refer to Readme and Update Instructions.txt

Important information for the update procedures

- Windows : When startup.bat is executed from FSUP, the update order is CPLD, PMEM, BMC, FRUSDR and BIOS followed by a system reset.

- Linux* : When "sh startup.sh" is executed from FSUP, it uninstalls existing sysfwupdt (if any) and installs latest sysfwupdt

from FSUP. The update order is CPLD, PMEM, BMC, FRUSDR and BIOS followed by a system reset.

- Once the Windows* and Linux startup script completes the update of CPLD/Pmem/BMC/FRUSDR/BIOS, the system will reboot two times automatically, on that time the screen will be off and blue ID LED will be solid on, once the process is completed the ID LED will be off and system will turn on again.

- Due to the new structure of FW using PFR, the first time the server is rebooted once FW has been updated, will take around 18 minutes on the first reboot to conclude the update process. In that time the screen will be off and the System LED will be blinking green/amber, after the first 4 minutes the blue ID LED will be solid on. Once the process is completed the ID LED will be off and system will turn on again. After post screen the server will be rebooted a second time and will take around 3 more minutes with the screen off to conclude the update process and power on the server back.

The time to conclude the FW update process is an expected behavior and only presented on the first and second reboot part of the FW update process.
