We have HS23 Blades with Qlogic 8Gb FC HBA (CIOv) installed. And the current HBA FW is as follows.
Firmware Version : 2.01a9 Boot Code Version: 5.12a11
Now we need to update Emulex HBA FW to 2.01a11 as follows
Firmware Version : 2.01a11 Boot Code Version: 5.12a13
We tuse BoMC9.40 to create the new Emulex 2.01a11 FW bootable media for updating. After running the bootable media for
update, it shows us that the update result is "Not applicable" which tells us that update is not applicable to this system configuration and hardware is not present. We think that the messages is very strange because BoMC can detect the Emulex current version is 2.01a9 and recommend to update the HBA FW to 2.01a11. We also enter to UEFI to check whether Emulex HBA FW is updated to 2.01a11. However, the old version is still there.
I wonder what the correct method to update the Emulex HBA firmware to the desired 2.01a11 by BoMC? Or any other methods for this update?Kindly pls advice, Thanks in advance.
