Detailed Description

Attention: 

Do NOT use this Software Update Package (SUP) if the system is an Intel® Data Center Block for Nutanix* Enterprise Cloud, the said system relies on Nutanix’s Prism Life Cycle Manager for any firmware updates. For more information, visit Nutanix* Life Cycle Manager page. For a list of hardware and firmware compatibility, visit the Nutanix* Hardware and Firmware compatibility page.

Firmware requirements 
To update the system firmware stack to the versions included in this update package, the currently loaded system firmware stack on the system must meet the following:

  • System BIOS - 02.01.0010
  • ME Firmware - 04.01.04.339 
  • BMC Firmware - 2.37.1f190479 
  • FRUSDR - 1.98 

Failure to get to the required firmware stack, may cause unexpected results. 

Overview

This download record contains the BIOS and firmware update package for the Intel® Server Board S2600WF Family and appropriate Intel® Server System R1000WF Family and Intel® Server System R2000WF Family—for use with Intel's technology-embedded Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) shell.

Purpose

This Firmware Update Package supports 1st and 2nd generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor families

This update package includes the following production-level system firmware updates, including the FW 01.02.00.5395 for Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory. If you received your Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory DIMMs with a different FW, install this one following the general installation procedure below:

  • System BIOS - R02.01.0011
  • ME Firmware - 04.01.04.339
  • BMC Firmware - 2.42.d0b788a4
  • FRUSDR - 1.99
  • Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory Firmware (DCPMM) - 01.02.00.5417

Important notes:

Starting from BMC 2.22.59c3b83a, when KCS Policy Control Mode is configured as "Deny ALL" on BMC EWS, BMC and FRUSDR cannot be upgraded/downgraded as expected behavior. Updates can still be performed via Redfish or BMC EWS

This SUP package includes the FW 01.02.00.5417 for Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory (DCPMM), if you received your DCPMM DIMMs with a different FW, please install this one following the general installation procedure below.

Extra parameter for ipmitool through LAN is required since BMC firmware 1.90 as the Cipher Suite 3 is disabled and only keep Cipher Suite 17 opened by default, the “-C 17” is a must when using ipmitool to access BMC LAN.

The Cipher Suite 17 was first introduced in ipmitool 1.8.18 on Oct 8th 2016, you have to update ipmitool to this version or newer one, earlier versions of ipmitool don’t have Cipher 17 support.

ipmitool is not working well when running in high load network. We recommend to add extra timeout by using “-N 5”. Default is 1 second for RMCP+, which is not enough. –N 5 will set 5 second as timeout.

So the command will look like:
ipmitool –I lanplus –H ip –U user –P password –C 17 –N 5 command
Please refer to the included "TA-1143_Extra_parameters_needed_for_ipmitool.pdf" for more information.

Downgrading BMC below 1.43.660a4315 is not supported due to a security revision change.

General installation procedure

  1. Unzip the contents of the update package and copy all files to the root directory of a removable media (USB flash drive).
  2. Insert the USB flash drive to any available USB port on the system to be updated.
  3. Power on the server and load the UEFI shell.
  4. Begin the update process by running the Startup.nsh.
  5. Reboot the system after the update process has successfully completed.
  6. If Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory is installed, run Startup.nsh a second time after the first reboot to upgrade Intel® Optane™ DC Persistent Memory Firmware.
