Upgrade IBM x3100 M5 server's firmware

Jump to solution

Hi.

I've ESXi 6.5 installed on my IBM x3100 M5 server.

I'd like to update the server's firmware but I can't do it in anyway.

Any idea?

Thanks in advance

For server firmware upgrade please contact the hardware vendor .

You can check the hardware compatibility guide to check the matrix with 6.5 esxi

The harware vendor is a ghost.

For this reason I've tried to find help on this forum that is of a very different quality and level

i had done this several times with ibm bomc (bootable media creator). it downloads the current firmware/bios and crates a bootable iso which you can attach to the imm.
