I am looking to update the RAID controller firmware on 3 new PowerEdge R610's. We already have ESXi configured and in use on the machines as well as OpenManage.
Openmanage yells at me with this warning:PERC H700 firmware is out of dateCurrent: 12.3.0-0032Minimum Required: 12.10.1-0001Driver Version: 00.00.04.14.18-1vmw
I read that one way to do this is to boot off a CentOS live CD and install via .BIN file. I tried this, but didn't have any success:
-Boot off live CD and downloaded firmware
-Installed pre-req packages
yum install libxml2-2.6.26-126.96.36.199.el5_5.1.i386 compat-libstdc++-33 libstdc++
-Tried running the .BIN file, and get this:
"This Update Package is not compatible with your system configuration"
Is there a better way to try and get these RAID controllers updated?
Oh man I was off by one digit in the firmware and downloaded the wrong version.....it's supposed to be RAID_FRMW_LX_R287842.BIN.
Problem solved....everything worked.
