Important notes

  • This is production FW package. All updates provided in this package are installed using the embedded uEFI operating environment only.
  • Do not modify any of the script files. The scripts as written will provide the most reliable update experience.
  • Added the new function to check the FW version on current system, which can make sure whether System BIOS, BMC Firmware, CPLD, FRU&SDR, or PMem data need to be re-installed after the initial update has been performed. The package does include standalone script files that can be run individually.

These files include:

  • UpdBIOS_TNP.nsh
  • UpdD50TNP.nsh
  • UpdCPLD_TNP.nsh
  • tnpFwUpdateBMC.nsh
  • UpdatePmemFW.nsh

Do NOT use these files until after the system has been updated initially using the startup.nsh file.

System software requirements

To update the system software stack to the versions included in this update package, the system software stack currently installed on the target server system MUST meet the following, or else the update may fail:

System BIOS: R01.01.0001 or later
BMC Firmware: 2.78 or later
FRUSDR: 0.34 or later
CPLDL: 3p2 or later

For pre-production hardware and software support requirements, contact Intel for details.
