Pinned topic Update error for ibm_fw_uefi_bee112f-1.02_anyos_32-64

‏2013-03-18T13:23:14Z |
My weekly check for updates task errors on update ibm_fw_uefi_bee112f-1.02_anyos_32-64. The server is WS2K8R2 at 6.3.2.

Here are the errors in the task log:

March 18, 2013 7:44:40 AM EDT-Level:1-MEID:0--MSG: Job activation status changed to "Complete with errors".

If I try to run the smcli cleanupd command specified in the message, it errors with the following:
ATKUSC008E No update was found with either an UpdateID or an Object ID (OID) of ibm_fw_uefi_bee112f-1.02_anyos_32-64. Verify the ID is correct and try the command again.

One thing I have noticed is in the update directory - other uefi folders have 5 files (.chg/.dd.xml/.pd.sdd/.txt/.xml), but this directory only has the .chg and .txt files. I though maybe this was because the .xml file was missing, but if I look up the update in fix central, it is missing the xml file there too.

If I delete the folder and rerun the update, then everything is exactly the same except it says "Acquired new information for update ibm_fw_uefi_bee112f-1.02_anyos_32-64" instead of "Reacquired information for update ibm_fw_uefi_bee112f-1.02_anyos_32-64". It still only has the 2 files.

Any ideas how to resolve this? Does IBM need to correct/update the repository? Or can I just tell Director to exclude this one update somehow. I'd prefer the job run successfully so I don't have to look at the logs every week to ensure this is the only error.

Thanks,
Nick
