Click image to enlarge

  1. Download DELL iDRAC firmware from Dell's Product Support page: IDRAC with Lifecycle Controller V.,2.52.52.52.

    Look for the filename iDRAC-with-Lifecycle-Controller_Firmware_74GHJ_WN64_2.52.52.52_A00.EXE.

  2. Go to the iDRAC console, Overview > iDRAC Settings > Update and Rollback > Update.
  3. Upload the downloaded file (iDRAC-with-Lifecycle-Controller_Firmware_74GHJ_WN64_2.52.52.52_A00.EXE) in step 1 and install it.
  4. After the upgrade is completed, log on to the iDRAC web console and go to Overview > Server > Properties > Summary to check the firmware version. It should now be 2.52.52.52.

If you do not want to upgrade the firmware but still want to use iDRAC, as a workaround, you can set iDRAC to only allow a dedicated IP to access it. Do the following:

  1. Open iDRAC console.
  2. Go to Overview > iDRAC Settings > Network.
  3. Click Advanced Settings.
  4. On the Network Security page, select IP Range Enable and set the IP info which will allow access to iDRAC.
  5. To apply the settings, click Apply.

Download Dell iDRAC Service Module 2.4 (For Windows)

Return

iDRAC Service Module is a lightweight piece of software that runs on the Server and complements iDRAC with monitoring information from the OS. Installing the iDRAC Service Module is optional, though highly recommended. The Service Module does not expose any new interfaces of its own, rather it complements iDRAC with additional data that users can work with using iDRAC consoles such as the GUI, RACADM and WSMAN. Features monitored by the Service Module can individually be enabled/disabled to achieve a fine level of control in terms of resources consumed on the Server OS, and the unique integration needs of a customer environment

Grats!

The iDRAC will accept two versions of the update file for itself. You can download the version that is a self-extracting executable. It will contain the release notes and a .d7 file. You can also download the Windows 32 bit Dell Update Package. That is a Windows installation file, but the iDRAC7 is capable of updating firmware and BIOS using Win32 bit DUPs.

Thanks

I did this on a couple of servers earlier in May. Worked fine.

The iDRAC on one of them had frozen and I had to restart it before I could do the upgrade. I'm hoping that that's one of the things the new version will fix.

I tried updating this from the Dell Server Management console in VMware 5.5. The current system bundle on the Dell FTP site (v501) does not include the 1.57.57 version update, but I found out that you can download the firmware file from the Dell support site and load it from a Windows or NFS share. If you do this, the file to download is the Windows version of the firmware update. Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions will work.

Looks to be a firmware update, a new driver and 2 docs.  I assume I need both the firmware and the driver.  I tried to download the docs but the link is messed up...

You can also update most firmware and BIOS through the iDRAC using Windows 32 bit DUPs. This is a new feature of the iDRAC 7. Previous versions would only allow iDRAC and LCC updates to be performed through the iDRAC web interface. To get the 32 bit DUPs select 2008 x86 in the operating system dropdown of the drivers and download page.

Regarding the 1.57 update, I would recommend updating to it. There are various revisions around 1.5 that have issues with session management and Java. 1.57 should resolve all of those problems.

I called Dell and they sent me the release notes and it contains 82 known issues.  That is more than a little scary!  

Can I upgrade via the iDRAC within the OS or do I need to reboot and enter the iDRAC that way?

Yes, you can do it through the OS or remotely. Connect to the iDRAC web interface. Once you have the iDRAC web page pulled up go to the iDRAC section>Update and Rollback. Direct it to either the file that Matt used or a Windows 32 bit DUP. The iDRAC will restart to complete the update, but this will not require the system to restart. The iDRAC is capable of restarting independent of the system.

The fans will run at maximum RPM and there may be reduced performance while the iDRAC is offline. It takes ~2 minutes for it to restart.

I tried to connect to the iDRAC web interface on my ESXi server and don't remember the login credentials.  Since I can't use the ESXi to load the update can I reboot the server - enter the iDRAC directly then update it with the files on a flash drive or a similar method?  Maybe through the lifecycle controller?

Yes, if you do it directly through the LCC then it will want a repository with a catalog file. You would need to use repository manager to create  custom repository or download the Server Update Utility. The easiest way would be to boot into the iDRAC interface and update the password. Then you can update the file through the web interface.

I thought about the SUU but when I checked on Dell's website they were still listing 7.4.0.225 which is the one I have currently deployed.  Do you know how often Dell updates the SUU?

It is usually quarterly, but we don't have a set schedule. Even if you use repository manager it will typically only have the same files as the SUU. We update the catalog for repo man around the same time we release the SUU. To get the latest updates you will need to install them manually.

I just rebooted a similar server, entered the LLC, selected the firmware update and selected ftp.dell.com.  It came back with an OS driver back, LLC, BIOS and NIC updates,  Could I have looked in the wrong place for the SUU?

No, you are directing it to our FTP. It is the same thing you would get with a custom repository or SUU. The catalog files are not updated very often. The iDRAC update is not likely in the catalog file, so it won't show up in the available updates.

The iDRAC7 is license based. All of the hardware is in the server, but what features are available are determined by the license.

The error indicates that a license is not present. There is a license section in the iDRAC web interface that allows you to manage licenses. You will likely need to create a license file and import it into the iDRAC. You can create licenses through the license management portal:

OP

I never got the email and only recently decided to go through a round of iDRAC and other firmware updates since we're looking to deploy the new Samsung 850 Pro SSDs in our ESX environment (whole nother story...). I attempted to connect to the DRAC only to get a failure message saying that there were no more sessions available (what?!?). So luckily we had Dell's Open Manage Server Administrator (OMSA) installed on the ESX host so i connected to it and was able to verify all of my DRAC settings and see that it was currently reporting 0 of 5 sessions are active (as i would have expected). Attempted to connect to the DRAC again, same results. So i attempted to SSH into the DRAC but got the same fricking message 'No more session are available for this type of connection'!!! So i get on the phone with Dell and the tech runs me through some of the basic troubleshooting steps, we change IP address, we change admin acount, we enable an additional acount, etc. all to no avail. we blow out all of the configs via OMSA and rebuild all of the DRAC settings. Still no love... So Dell tells me that what i need to do is to POWER DOWN THE HOST AND PULL THE POWER CABLES!!! O M G!!! I can't tell you how amazingly and supremely disappointed i am that i cannot access my ENTERPRISE REMOTE ACCESS CARD and that they are telling me that i need to power down my production hardware and pull the power cords to fix it!!!

For Dell, I'm amazed that you can access the DRAC settings in OMSA, but you cannot 'reboot' it or update its firmware from here. I'm also amazed that you released an ENTERPRISE level REMOTE ACCESS device with this kind of bug!!! This is an ENTERPRISE FAILURE of the highest magnitude. Lastly, i'm amazed that there is no manual way to reset the DRAC without taking the whole system offline!

All that being said, we will be updating the firmware for (4) of our Dell R620s' DRACs in the upcoming weeks from 1.50 to the 1.57.57.

Sours: https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/506185-dell-idrac7-urgent-update
Dell iDRAC 6 Firmware Updates via GUI Interface
Solution
  • Shutdown server and power-off
  • After shutdown has completed, disconnect all power cables.
  • After all power cables are disconnected, press and hold the power button on your server for at least 30 seconds
  • After pressing then holding the power button on the server for at least 30 seconds, reconnect power cables to the server
  • Connect keyboard and console/display to the server. If you can connect a mouse, that may also help you, but without a mouse, you can use the keyboard to navigate selections ("tab" key, arrow keys, and "enter"/"return" key.)
  • After power cables have been reconnected to the server, press power button once (and then let go of the power button) to boot server, and follow steps below here:
Boot/Reboot and press "F10" to choose to boot to "Lifecycle Controller"
Press F10 on the Keyboard
This may take a few minutes to boot...
Wait for boot
If you have never used the Lifecycle Controller on this server, you will need to visit the "Settings" to configure networking in the Lifecycle Controller to allow it to download updates from Dell. On the left-side locate "Settings" and select it.
Choose settings on the left
On the right-side, locate and select "Network Settings"
Network settings
There are many possible ways to configure networking from the Lifecycle Controller. The most common network configuration for this is for you to choose "LAN1" and "Static" IP assignment, and then specify the IP address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway you use on your running MAG on LAN1. Then specify a DNS Server of 8.8.8.8
Configure IP settings
Locate and select "Finish," and it should attempt to save the network settings and check DNS and for access to remote dell servers.
Complete IP configuration
This is what you may see while the Lifecycle Controller is testing your network settings.
Please Wait
If your network settings do not work, or fail to work with DNS or FTP/HTTP, you may see an error like this. You can then go back to earlier steps and change your network settings until it works. Once it works, move on to the next step.
Re-Check IP configuration
When it passes the internal testing, you should see something like this.
Settings Complete
Now that you have a working network config, locate "Firmware Update" and choose it.
(Here you have one of two choices: the "upgrade" or "rollback")
In this case, the "better" choice (if it works) is to upgrade firmware.  We will want to upgrade BIOS and iDRAC and "BP*" (backplane) and Lifecycle Controller firmware upgrade (if available) all in the same session. Frequently, each has cross-dependence, so they should be upgraded together.

If "upgrade" does not help us resolve the issue, then a "rollback" may be a better choice to try first, and then after "rollback" to a base, upgrade to latest may work.

Even if there is no newer firmware for the iDRAC, select to upgrade the iDRAC firmware to the same version to re-install it, just in case the last upgrade didn't quite work.
Firmware update on the left
Choose "FTP" as the source for updates.
Dell's Lifecycle controller claims to perform at-rest validation that the updates they download via FTP are actually signed by dell.com to confirm they are genuine updates from Dell.

Use FTP to download Firmware
Use "ftp.dell.com" or IP address 143.166.146.76
Address: 143.166.146.76
Username: anonymous
Password: [email protected]
If you need a proxy, then choose that checkbox and fill-out settings for your proxy.

FTP Configuration DRAC/iDRAC
Assuming it works, this may take a few minutes...
Downloading Firmware
Now you should see a list of firmware upgrades available. Select the updates you want.
First-pass, de-select all, and if updates are available for "BIOS" , "Lifecycle Controller" (sometimes this is bundled with DRAC/iDRAC updates), "BP*" (backplane, if available) and "iDRAC" then select all of these for updates. (Frequently, these are interdependent on version, and need to be upgraded "together".)

DANGER: De-select updates for "PSU" or "Power Supply Unit" do NOT update the power supply.
Available firmware updates
After you have selected all of the updates you want to include, click "Apply"/"Next" and it should begin the upgrade process.  The upgrade process should show you how many updates are left, which upgrade is happening, and timers with max-time-to-run indication.  Once the upgrades are complete, it may reboot back to the Lifecycle Controller. You can try updates again, to see if there are any other updates, or you can exit the Lifecycle Controller to reboot and see if the POST error on boot for DRAC is gone.

If upgrade(s) worked, finish/exit the lifecycle controller, and the server should reboot now allowing you to check and see if the POST error on boot for DRAC/iDRAC is gone. Whether it is gone or not, you can return back to the Lifecycle Controller and upgrade the firmware on any other devices that appear to have updates available.
If upgrade FAILED, (or failed to address the iDRAC POST error) we might be able to rollback firmware, and then re-try the firmware upgrades.
This next section is for "rollback" if and only if it is needed.
Boot/Reboot and press "F10" to choose to boot to "Lifecycle Controller"
F10 On Boot
This may take a few minutes to boot...
Please Wait
If there is no iDRAC upgrade, or forcing upgrade to same version installed does not address the POST error on boot from iDRAC, we can try to "rollback" the "BIOS" , "iDRAC" and if available "Lifecycle Controller" at the same time. Only choose "Rollback" if the upgrade did not help.
Rollback Firmware
It may take a few minutes to load this...
Please Wait
De-select all, At a minimum, if available for "rollback" you will want to select "BIOS" and "Lifecycle Controller" and "iDRAC" and maybe "BP*" (backplane) firmware. Sometimes the "Lifecycle Controller" is pre-bundled with "iDRAC" and "BP*" may not be available for downgrade.

Down-grading or upgrading these 3 or 4 items together gives us the best chance for successfully working as we desire.
Deselect everything
After those changes have been applied, finish/exit from the Lifecycle Controller.

If rollback worked, reboot and then re-visit "Lifecycle Controller" and re-try the upgrade process described at the top of this page.

Mine are all 12G servers, two T320's and a 620, all get the same message.

I'm trying to perform F/W update using the Lifcycle controller, after choosing the components to update I receive the below error message. 

"

Unable to install the update packages (SUP0531) 

Recommended action : 

Enter another repository location that has the Update Packages and retry the operation. 

 

It pulls the catalog, know what versions I have and what need to be updated and offers them to me.  The iDRAC is already up to date, I always do it first and from iDRAC itself.  I was on 2.60 and am now on 2.61

I'm running it from my home network, no complicated gear between me and the world.  I've tried the HTTP option but just get a different error, don't even get offered updates.

Searching the above error message there are various issues with that exact message going back years, never have I found a solution though, just dead ends.  Edited to add I've seen just about every current generation have the problem, 12,13 and 14.
