Trying to update from .7 Power Management Controller to version 3.4 or higher and it will not accept the update. Tried using cp011301, cp011025, and cp116626 from HP download. I get the message that "this software will not be installed on this system because the required hardware is not present in the system or the software/firmware doesn't apply to this system." "The PMC on this system does not support firmware updates." I have removed/reseated the Server Blade several times with no success.
HP onboard admin shows message that "This PMC should be updated, a new version is available".
Tried following the steps in the HP advisory (c01668472) several times and still unable to update the firmware. We have several other of the exact same models and had no problem upgrading to 3.4 and getting rid of the advisory called out in the HP Bladesystem Onboard Administrator. iLO2 version is 2.12 and I'm running Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
Any thoughts on why this will not update?

Try to update the firmware offline by booting through the SPP iso or FW Update iso and check.
If the issue still persists, would recommend you to engage HP Support for further assistance.
