Error updating boot rom illicit affairs dating
Once downloaded it prompts you to proceed – press any key (other than ESX) to apply the update.
It now applies the updated firmware to the e200 controller Once completed successfully you will get the message ‘Auto Flashing Completed’ Remove the USB memory stick from your server and reboot it.
The firmware updates aren’t technically destructive to the data on the disks though don’t tempt fate and double check that you do in fact have a backup handy – just in case. Although straight forward there are a few more steps involved than the online ROM flash method.
Method #1: Online ROM Flash for Firmware Updates v1.84 (Latest) To install the firmware update via the online ROM flash component all you do is download and run the version matching the OS you are currently running on your ML110/ML115. First visit the ML110 or ML115 driver and software downloads page on the HP site.
Now ideally you’d think you could perform your firmware updates to the array controller or other components in the ML110/ML115 server via the HP Firmware Maintenance CD or HP Software Update Manager (SUM) but HP for some reason don’t allow either of these products to be run on any Proliant 100 series server.
I can only think that this is down to HP wanting to reduce the amount of automation or ease at which you could update a number of the 100 series servers thereby driving corporate or larger customers to the 300 and 500 series of HP Proliants.
The script will work with Chrome OS or pretty much any Linux distro (at least no one has told me otherwise).
I also run both SATA and SAS based disks from it without any problems.
These cheaper 100 series Proliants do offer a threat to the other larger Proliant servers as they do offer very good value for money and good performance especially with the release of the multi-core and faster processors.
Now before proceeding make sure you have backed up your data on the disks attached to the E200 array controller. Method #2: USB Firmware Flash Utility v1.72 I thought I’d provide a step by step guide for those of you wanting to take it to v1.72 via a USB memory stick only.
Notice that my E200 was showing as being at v1.20 of the firmware.
It displays it as being an E200i which is incorrect as it is an E200 (minus the ‘i’ – for integrated) – this is resolved in firmware update v1.66: The server now boots from the USB memory stick and starts to download the firmware update.
*Note that this trick worked when i was updating Nexus One from Android 2.2 to Android 2.2.1 on an unlocked bootloader. So if you test it and find it working on any other version, please do mention the update in comments.
