    BIOS Update?

    Rookie

      Is it possible to make BIOS updates with the Management Suite? If yes, what are the requirements and how it can be done?

       

      Thanks, Jibber

          Depends on the hardware you are using, however, as long as the vendor supplies a tool to do it, it can probably be done. The only rough areas is if the hardware vendor only supplies a DOS based utility. We use it for HP bios updates, and the stuff I believe is baked in for Lenova, and Desll has utilites. What hardware are you using? Some rough spots are if their are BIOS passwords and such.

            They use Dell...

             

            Is this a special function in LDMS or can it be done by software distribution?

              Nothing baked in as far as I know just use software distribution with -nopause commandline.
