Upgrading the Firmware (upgrade)

Upgrading the Firmware (upgrade)


The upgrade command is used to upgrade the server firmware, which includes the iBMC, BIOS, SD card firmware, and complex programmable logic device (CPLD).


ipmcset -d upgrade -v <filepath>


Parameter Description Value

Specifies the absolute path of the upgrade file.

Only the xxx.hpm file is supported.
Example value: /tmp/image.hpm.

Usage Guidelines

If the iBMC of the RH5885H V3 server needs to be upgraded from V217 or earlier to V308 or later, upgrade the iBMC to a version between V221 and V276 and then upgrade it to the target version.

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.

After the iBMC or SD card controller upgrade is complete, the iBMC restarts automatically for the upgrade to take effect.

  • In single-system mode, running the upgrade command on the primary iBMC will upgrade the primary iBMC and secondary iBMC simultaneously.
  • In dual-system mode, the upgrade command will upgrade only the iBMC on which the command is executed.


# Upgrade the firmware.

iBMC:/->ipmcset -d upgrade -v /tmp/image.hpm
Please make sure the iBMC is working while upgrading!
Update successfully.
