First we have to check the available server model and configuration. First get the equipment serial number and check the hardware type device.

Another way to find the processor type is to get the server logs and in tmp/maintenance/hardwareinfo/bmchardwareinfo.txt file you can find the processor type.

Upgrade the right BIOS image version, accordingly to the hardware type : BIOS V328 is the latest one for the E7V2 processor.
