Blade BIOS & Support Matrix



I want to upgrade the BIOS on a BL blade server, but I cannot find the URL to the most current compatibility matrix. Can someone advise where this info is?


Also, would be nice to have definitive guidance as to the order in which you should push out updates to blades and the chassis firmware...

Re: Blade BIOS & Support Matrix

This may be what you are looking for:



However, its better to download the latest SPP and install it on a system accessible to the server OS' and the blade/OA networks.


There are several variables to consider, but the general consensus on updating seems to be:

 - Update the server's ROM and internal components (NIC, FC, etc) first.

 - Update the iLO's for the servers.

 - Update the OA.

 - Update Virtual Connect FW if applicable.
