PE2950 - Prec/6I Firmware won't update
Posted on 2013-06-17
I just installed Windows 2008 R2 w/SP1 on Pe2950 and then installed Dell Open Server Administrator.
After installing, Dell OSA, it displays this message saying the Perc6/I firmware needs to be upgraded. I went to the Dell site, selected the Perc 6/I firmware but everything I try installing it, it says it can't be installed on this O/S like I'm installing a 32 bit version on a 64 bit O/S.
The Device Manager lists a Perc 6/I Integrated Raid controller
Here is the content of the Firmware Version Doc from the download:
Title: SAS Raid: Perc 6/I Integrated Firmware

Os: Not Applicable
Here is the error message from the Open Manage app:

Can anyone direct me to the appropriate download for the Perc card firmware for Windows 2008 R2 64 bit?
