Greetings,

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PERC H700 firmware is out of date
Current:  12.3.0-0032
Minimum Required:  12.10.1-0001
Driver 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

wget http://ftp.dell.com/sas-raid/RAID_FRMW_LX_R287843.BIN


-Installed pre-req packages

yum install libxml2-2.6.26-2.1.2.8.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?
