I have a plethora of C5220 servers that are running BIOS 2.0.3 and BMC Firmware 1.13. These servers all run RHEL 6. I have attempted to use the BIN files on the support site to update to BIOS 2.0.8 and FW 1.16, but I've run into various problems. The BIOS update works to update to 2.0.7, but 2.0.8 will invariably fail with
"Unable to get the System Generation"
The firmware updates will fail with an error that says
I've looked around and I didn't see anything useful related to these error messages. Has anyone encountered this before?
What is the best way to update the BIOS and firmware on the Dell C5220 servers?
