The first step in the update procedure is to make sure the iDRAC firmware of the SU nodes and HLH are at the correct level. Log in to each iDRAC for the HLH and SU nodes to validate the current firmware versions.
On 13G servers, any firmware that is less than version 188.8.131.52 must be updated. The iDRAC firmware versions contained in the 1906 release for 13G is 184.108.40.206 for scale unit nodes and HLH.
For 14G scale unit nodes, any firmware that is less than version 220.127.116.11 must be updated. The iDRAC firmware versions contained in the 1906 release for 14G is 18.104.22.168 for scale unit nodes and HLH.
The following figure displays a 13G R730xd server with an out-of-date iDRAC version. The iDRAC firmware version on a 14G R740xd system appears in the iDRAC’s System Information section of the Dashboard.
On a 13G system, the job queue looks similar to the following figure:
On a 14G system, the job queue looks similar to this Maintenance window:
This update is non-disruptive and does not require a server reboot, but it will reset the iDRAC when completed.
The following figure is similar to what you should see on a 14G system after you reboot the iDRAC:
