I have a Dell PowerEdge R510 with iDRAC Enterprise:
- System Model: PowerEdge R510
- System Revision: II
- Service Tag: 70BMGS1
- Express Service Code: 15257000305
- BIOS Version: 1.8.2
- Firmware Version: 1.80 (Build 17)
- Lifecycle Controller Firmware: 188.8.131.52
I want to upgrade the BIOS and the iDRAC firmware. I fed it each of these files from Dell's R510 downloads page (iDRAC Settings -> Firmware Update on the web UI), but each time, it came back with "File is not valid for iDRAC Firmware update":
Based on Dell forums, I should do a staged update, but 1.85 is the oldest version of what I think is the iDRAC firmware available on Dell's site.
For newer servers like R620 and R630, I was able to just feed the iDRAC any firmware file from Dell's website (BIOS or iDRAC or otherwise) and it figured out what to do with it. Any idea how I should perform the upgrade?
