Dell iDrac remote upgrade demo (no sound)

July 11, 2011 Leave a comment

Recently i started to receive some weird alerts from one of the management interface of one of my Dell servers. This specific server is running Opensolaris, and therefore the only way to upgrade the firmware of the idrac is to use a web based upgrade..

I got so many questions from some of my co-workers asking how this , (easy and trivial, for me at least) task can be done, that i decided to record a small video of the entire process.

If you’re interested take a look to the above video and see how a firmware upgrade can be done.. For more information check the Dell Techcenter iDrac page and the iDrac6 documentation .
