Proliant ML150 Fans are LOUD

Upgraded a Proliant ML150 G6 with and additional 24GB of RAM and a second CPU, which required we add the redundant fan kit.

Server runs fine.

Fans are LOUD, and stay loud.

Seems like there should be a BIOS update that would fix this, but I am not sure which one it is.

Any suggestions?

System ROM and iLO 100 firmware should fix it (unless it is due to the new RAM having no temperature sensor), download page

This brings up a good point: I don't know how to get into an iLO 100. How do you do that? My DL360's all have a separate NIC for the iLO, and it is pretty strait forward. But I have never figured out how to get into the iLO 100 series.

OK. Getting this error:

TFTP server communication error.
Please check TFTP server configuration and try again.

Please enter TFTP server IP address and firmware fully qualified filename.
Refresh browser for status.

Note: After a successful download the BMC will automatically reset.

It asked for the tftp server, which is a linux box running tftpd under xinetd.

It's IP address is 192.168.1.23
the server is configured to look at /tftpboot as a root
The file I am attempting to flash with is CPQO2102.632

Using a regular tftp client, I can run:

tftp 192.168.1.23 get CPQO2102.632

and it downloads it.

What is the "fully qualified path" it wants?

I've tried:
CPQO2102.632
/CPQO2102.632
/tftpboot/CPQO2102.632

Thoughts?

I think that it cannot actually get a route to the tftp server. From the tftp server, I cannot ping the LO100 (192.168.1.4) it just says: no route to destination.

Is there a way I can test / ping from the LO100 out? I ssh'd in, but couldn't find a network testing command in CLIP.

Sorry, I haven't used TFTP to upgrade firmware, only USB stick etc.

I'll have to go over there to do an upgrade then. USB Stick goes smoothly?

I haven't had problems with USB stick but some ProLiants are fussy booting from them and I have a special 1GB one that never fails to boot. I think the USB boot problems are just with the 300 series though, not the 100 series.
