Upgrading the BIOS (upgradebios)

Upgrading the BIOS (upgradebios)


The maintenance -d upgradebios command is used to upgrade the BIOS.


ipmcset -t maintenance -d upgradebios -v filepath


Parameter Description Value
filepath Specifies the path of the BIOS upgrade file.

For example, /tmp/biosimage.hpm.

Usage Guidelines

  • Before running this command, use a file transfer tool that supports SFTP, for example WinSCP, to transfer the upgrade file to the specified directory (for example /tmp) of the iBMC file system.

  • Both the maintenance -d upgradebios and upgrade commands can be used to upgrade the BIOS. The difference of the two commands is as follows:

    • To use the maintenance -d upgradebios command, you need to power off the OS. To use the upgrade command, you can choose to power off the OS or not.

    • If the maintenance -d upgradebios command is used, default BIOS settings are restored after the upgrade.

    • If the upgrade command is used, system settings will not be changed. For details, see Upgrading the Firmware (upgrade).
