Looking for archived S2600CP firmware

Hey Team,

 

We have a system which seems to be stuck in BMC Upgrade mode:

 

Baseboard management controller in update mode.

There have been no updates done on our side that we know of, but it is known that doing a new update might fix this state.

 

BIOS version listed from BIOS:

SE5C600.86B.02.02.1002

 

So a pretty old version, but i want to first see if a reflash fixes the issue.

Does anyone have the old version available or is there a place where i can find the archives of older firmwares?

 

Kind Regards

So I managed to cobble together the required build by using the following sources:

 

Using base package from the S2600IP board: (getting version 02.02.0002)

Intel® Server Board S2600IP and Intel® Workstation Board W2600CR Firmware Update Package for Extensi...

 

Getting the FRUSDR from the latest generic package: (using oldest package which has all components)

Firmware Update Package Update for EFI Intel® Server Boards and Intel® Server Systems Based on Intel...

 

I built my own package from that, reflashed, system is back operational ( there is still an error on the board, but since the system is back live and rebuilding, Ill have to wait to figure out what is wrong

How did this work out? Been trying to find the old files myself so I can safely update to get support for v2 (Ivy Bridge) chips. Intel has not been very helpful because they have purged half of the older stuff but kept a bunch of stuff up that cannot be used because we need the older stuff. -facepalm- 

I am also running the same BIOS version.

Hey Khaos,

 

As stated, the only part of the firmware package that is board dependent is the FRUSDR.

The BIOS and BMC i took from the S2600IP board and managed to reflash the system ( you do have to keep in mind that you might need to do intermediate flashes, always check dependencies and requirements for the BMC / FRU / BIOS.

 

You can flash 1 part at a time if that makes you more comfortable but then again, you need to keep BIOS / BMC / FRUSDR at compatible versions
