Pinned topic BoMC Firmware

‏2012-12-14T21:05:07Z |
When using the BoMC to download firmware to be updated the names of the files look like they are all only for linux. They all end in _linux_21-64. Do I have to be worried if I am runing this for windows machines? How do I get it to download the firmware for Windows? I have selected the correct machine types.

    Hi
    Your are downloading the right thing. Just make sure that you have select the right Machine Model Type.

    Only one thing is to remember that its only update hardware firmwares, If you need to update device drivers and firmware too so you need to use IBM UpdateXpress.

    "IBM UpdateXpress can help reduce your cost of computing by providing an effective and simple way to update device drivers, server firmware and firmware of supported options contained within the server on most of your System x and BladeCenter products."

    Version 9.30
