CentOS based Firmware images with OM 7.3 ( with PXE)

NOTE: The solutions outlined below are NOT officially supported by Dell.

 The Firmware Live Images with OM 7.3 are available at om73-firmware-live.

Please check out the blog Firmware Updates on Dell Servers for details on how to use the ISO images.

Please check out the blog PXE Images for details on how to setup the PXE boot for firmware updates.


Some details about the images:

  • The Base OS is updated to CentOS 6.4 (64-bit)
  • Just like in the previous images, these images only carry firmware updates. They don't carry any OS driver packs.
  • The OpenManage 7.3 components are picked up from here.

NOTE: all the commands which need root privileges can be used with sudo in the image.



We would very much like to hear from everyone using these images. Please leave us a note on linux-poweredge mailing list or a comment below on how you are using these images and what changes you would like to see in these images.

P.S: the root password is "linux" on the live images.

  • We end up needing to use the live CD for some more problematic updates for some reason. It works great. Any hope for the 7.40 Q4 with most recent firmwares?

  • I started working on the 7.4 image, will try to post it in the next few weeks.

  • Hi Praveen, It works great. Waiting for 7.4. Thanks!
