Lifecycle Controller firmware update fails

This question is not answered

I'm trying to apply Lifecycle-Controller_Application_F0D50_LN32_1.5.2.32_A00.BIN on our R610s since it was listed as an urgent update. The systems are running SLES11 SP1 and I get the following error on all the machines I've tried it on:

# ./Lifecycle\-Controller_Application_F0D50_LN32_1.5.2.32_A00.BIN

Unified Server Configurator - Lifecycle Controller Enabled, v.1.2.0.41, A00

The version of this Update Package is newer than the currently installed version.
Software application name: Unified Server Configurator - Lifecycle Controller Enabled, v.1.2.0.41, A00
Package version: 1.5.2.32
Installed version: 1.2.0.41

Update Failure: The file copied to the partition did not match the original file

Device: Unified Server Configurator - Lifecycle Controller Enabled

Is there any solution to this?

  • Hi Sven,

    This can occur if the update is using up the whole temporary partition, try running the following ipmitool command until it returns a 0x00 response, this should recover the partition and allow the update to work.

    Linux

    ipmitool raw 0x06 0x05 0x64 0x52 0x45 0x4D 0x24 0x73 0x74 0x38

    Response: 0x00 0x00

    ipmitool raw 0x30 0xac 0x00 0x00 0x00 0x00

    Response : 0x00 0x00

    Thanks,

  • I see the same error on a Windows Server 2008 R710.

    Any Suggestions?
