I recently used the file cp007846.exe to update the firmware on an HP BL460c blade. I am having trouble understanding the firmware types. Initially the NIC's had "Boot Code" and "iSCSI" firmware. When I clicked Apply all updates, step 2 would return an error stating that "A configuration error has occured on one or more adapters. The firmware will not be updated".
However, if I go to the install tab, the CLP firmware is listed. If I click install, the firmware for CLP installs correctly, but the CLP firmware overwrites the iSCSI firmware. After the install of the CLP firmware, I am unable to apply the backup firmware and revert to the iSCSI.
Now my questions... what do these different types of firmware(iSCSI and CLP) do? What effects, positive or negative, could the changes have on my system? Should I stick with the CLP or try to revert to the iSCSI somehow?
Thanks in advance,
