Updating Dell DRAC firmware without OS
Posted on 2014-09-30
I have a Dell PowerEdge 2950 that is used as VMware ESXi host. The DRAC card has some kind of issue and doesn't initialize properly so I want to update the firmware. The problem is, I cannot figure out how:
- There is no OS to run the stand-alone updater
- The controller doesn't work properly so I cannot connect to it via IP
- If I boot with the SBUU DVD and then run the latest SUU v7.4 I don't get anything about the DRAC controller
- If I use Repository Manager in order to create a custom bootable DVD, I cannot figure out how to add the DRAC driver in the ISO
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
