About Firmware Updates
Firmware Updatable Components
An NVIDIA DGX H100 System has several firmware updatable components. Some of the components are on the following two trays in the system:
The motherboard tray has components, such as the CPUs, PCH, BMC as shown in the following figure:
The GPU tray has components, such as the GPUs, NVSwitches, HMC as shown in the following figure:
You can update the firmware on NVIDIA DGX H100 System components out-of-band (OOB) by using Redfish APIs or from the host operating system by using command-line interface (CLI) commands.
Firmware Update Prerequisites
You can download firmware packages from the NVIDIA Enterprise Support Portal at https://enterprise-support.nvidia.com/s/.
You must know the BMC IP address, a user name, and a password. The sample commands in this document show
adminfor both the user name and the password.
You must have the
nvfwupdexecutable or know how to use the Redfish API.
Firmware Update Methods

You can download the executable from the NVIDIA Enterprise Support Portal.
Refer to About the nvfwupd Command for more information about the command.
You can run the
nvfwupd command interactively to update systems.
Most command examples in this document show this interactive approach.
If you have several systems to update, you can create a JSON file that identifies
the systems to update.
Refer to Updating Multiple Systems for more information.
An alternative to the
nvfwupd command is to update firmware by using the Redfish API.
The BMC network interface provides remote management with Redfish APIs.
Refer to Redfish APIs Support
in the NVIDIA DGX H100 User Guide for more information and sample commands.
