Its always the best practise to have the blades and the CMM on the same firmware release if possible.
The 18.104.22.168 is firmware 2.1
Go here for latest ilom 3.0 update CMM
and the wolf x6250 blade ilom 3.0
But don't my Sun Blade 6000 Chassis has to be of hardware revision 3.0 to upgrade to the ilom-3.x.x.x release?
I also have an older Sun Blade 6000 chassi that I "suspect" is hardware revision 2.0.
Therefore I have not updated is even to ilom-22.214.171.124...
Am I correct?
If so, how do I check what hardware revsion my Sun Blade 6000 Chassis are?
as you can see in the notes of the release:
The major feature of this release is:
* Combined image of BIOS version 3B22 and ILOM version ILOM 126.96.36.199 (Service Processor firmware)
* RAID Expansion Module Firmware version 15872
* CPLD update to 307
I think you refer to the CPLD being updated, this is done automatically with ILOM, with ELOM you needed to do this seperately.
Using the SP (ILOM) updates both the ILOM and BIOS firmware, and the CPLD.
Some new hardware needs a higher CPLD version, like expansion modules or changes from dual to quad core CPU's.
You Must Reseat Your Server Module After Upgrading to Software Release 2.0.4 from 2.0, 2.0.1, 2.0.2 or 2.0.3
After upgrading to software release 2.0.4 from 2.0, 2.0.1, 2.0.2 or 2.0.3:
1. Eject the server module from the chassis to remove power.
You do not have to completely remove the server from the chassis. Eject the server module just far enough to disengage it from the chassis connector.
2. Wait 30 seconds, and insert the server module into the chassis.
for later releases this is not needed anymore!
You can see the CPLD version is BUI or CLI
I have not worked so much with the blades before so I just want to confirm that I understand your post below.
Am I correct when I state:
I should upgrade all my Sun Blade Chassis CMM and x6250 blades to ilom-3.x.x.x. I don't have to check that my chassi is of a specifik HW revision?
Thanks for your answers!
