Important notes

• This is a production FW package. All updates provided in this package are installed using the embedded UEFI operating environment only.

• Do not modify any of the script files. The scripts as written will provide the most reliable update experience.

• Added the new function to check the FW version on the current system, which can make sure whether System BIOS, BMC Firmware, CPLD, FRU&SDR, or PMem data need to be re-installed after the initial update has been performed. The package does include standalone script files that can be run individually.

These files include:

UpdBIOS_TNP.nsh, UpdBMC_TNP.nsh UpdD50FruSdr_TNP.nsh, UpdCPLD_TNP.nsh, UpdatePmemFW.nsh, UpdBMCRecovery_TNP.nsh, UpdCPLDRecovery_TNP.nsh

Do NOT use these files until after the system has been updated initially using the startup.nsh file.

System software requirements

To update the system software stack to the versions included in this update package, the system software stack currently installed on the target server system MUST meet the following, or else the update may fail:

  • System BIOS: R01.01.0006 or later
  • ME Firmware: 04.04.04.202
  • BMC Firmware: 2.89.7e3b728b
  • FRUSDR: 0.42
  • CPLDL: v3P9
  • Pmem: 2.2.0.1553

Important information for the update procedure

  • To complete update process of CPLD/Pmem/BMC/FRUSDR/BIOS, must execute the startup.nsh, it will update CPLD/Pmem/BMC/FRUSDR/BIOS and then the system will reboot automatically.
  • After reset, the screen will be off and blue ID LED will be solid on for some minutes. Once update process is completed, the ID LED will be off and system will boot up again.
  • Due the new structure of FW using PFR, the first time the server is rebooted once FW has been updated, will take around 12 minutes on the first reboot to conclude the update process, on that time the screen will be off and the System LED will be blinking green/amber, after the first 3 minutes the blue ID LED will be solid on, once the process is completed the ID LED will be off and system will turn on again, after post screen the server could be rebooted a second time.The time to conclude the FW update process is an expected behavior and only presented on the first reboot part of the FW update process.
