Difference: DellManagement (r2 vs. r1)

Dell Management

How to update firmware

  1. Move all running VMs to the host you are not going to update
  2. Click on the datacenter (bps-1221 in MSU's case) and then select the OpenManage? Integration tab. Click the update firmware button, then select Next three times.
  3. Select the updates on host you want to update, then select next until the last screen.
  4. Choose Update Now and click Finish.
  5. The update should take about 30-60 minutes. When it is done the host should automatically be reconnected to the vCenter.

Known issues

I haven't been able to get the tab to work on client on the Windows 2012 R2 server. The software uses flash in an IE pane or something like that and flash is disabled by default in IE in Windows 2012. I tried disabling IE Enhanced Security Configuration, but that didn't seem to do the trick. It works well enough on the Windows 7 machine and using it is uncommon, so I'm just going to use the Windows 7 machine.
