Can Firmware updates be rolled-back?

  • Hi there,

    Please assist with the subject question with regards to roll-back of firmware installations on physical servers/components.

    is it possible to rollback to previous versions if you are having problems with latest firmware updates?

  • Hi and thanks for the post.

    You might be able to do this from the iDrac itself.

    maybe some info here:

    From OME, in the systems update portal page, there is an advanced button.  There may be a setting in there for enable downgrades.  That could allow you to push a lower version of the firmware to systems.  Perhaps that will help.

  • OME can if you have enable downgrades checked.
