So ahead of an ESXi6.0u2 update we are refreshing the BIOS on one of our clusters to reach a compatible level. Using OME I have been able to push the BIOS to several servers without hitch, until now. I am currently stuck with a server that fails to come up cleanly:
It looks like it is failing to reinventory the server and will not progress past this screen. I have tried powering off the server, resetting the idrac, unplugging the server and cold booting, reinventoring from OME, disabling LifeCycleController via racadm SSH and nothing works. The server splash screen can see version 2.5.4 of the BIOS but the iDRAC is only showing 1.6.0 and I can see two jobs in the queue to update the firmware. I have tried clearing these jobs via racadm but every combination fails with
Jobqueue Operation failed
Does anyone have any other magic ideas or commands I can run on the SSH to try and allevate the issue?
