Firmware updates with SBUU and SUU

This question is not answered

Hi There,

I have a PE1950 and a PE2950 both fifth generation that are due for firmware updates (BMC, BIOS, raid cards and NIC).  They both have Server 2003 installed on them and are in a production environment.  As i do not wish to shutdown and restart windows 3 times for each machine to install the windows firmware packages, i have decided to use the bootable OM System Build and Update Utillity and System Update Utility disk. 

Before i begin this process i wish to confim that it safe to use OM System Build and Update Utillity with the System Update Utility disk to install firmware updates on machines that already have OSes installed and running.  I know this sounds like a silly question but i would prefer to ask and get a concrete answer than to break something on a production machine.

Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to offer.

 

Regards

 

Will
