Updating the BMC from Version 01.00.01

In order to update the BMC firmware from version 01.00.01, the BMC firmware must be updated to an intermediate version first. Attempting to update directly to the latest BMC version will return an error message; this is to avoid an issue where configuration settings in the BMC are lost when updating to the latest BMC version from version 01.00.01.
  1. Refer to the DGX-2 User Guide "Updating Firmware" chapter for complete instructions on using the firmware update container.
  2. Refer to Special Instructions for all Updates to see if services need to be stopped and how to do it.
  3. Update the BMC.
    1. Update to the intermediate version.
      $ sudo docker run --rm --privileged -ti -v /:/hostfs <image-name> update_fw BMC --intermediate-fw
      Follow any prompts.

      To update the secondary BMC image, issue the following.

      $ sudo docker run --rm --privileged -ti -v /:/hostfs <image-name> update_fw BMC --intermediate-fw --update-backup-bmc
    2. Update to the latest BMC firmware version.
      $ sudo docker run --rm --privileged -ti -v /:/hostfs <image-name> update_fw BMC
      Follow any prompts.

      To update the secondary BMC image, issue the following.

      $ sudo docker run --rm --privileged -ti -v /:/hostfs <image-name> update_fw BMC --update-backup-bmc
