S1200SP firmware upgrade path

Is there a firmware upgrade path for the S1200P motherboards?

 

We got some servers with the following firmware installed:

BMC FW Build Time :	2017-02-17 12:03:43
BIOS ID :	S1200SP.86B.03.01.0014.022720170201
BMC FW Rev :	1.07.10481
Boot FW Rev :	1.05
SDR Package Version :	SDR Package 0.20
Mgmt Engine (ME) FW Rev :	04.01.03.021

 

I would like to upgrade the BIOS and BMC firmware, but the firmware numbers on the downloads page is rather confusion, and not sequential:

 

Which version should I install next?

Or can I just install the latest version, 03.01.0049 ?

Hello SilverNodashi,


Thank you for contacting Intel Customer Support.  


Depending on your current BIOS version, we do recommend upgrading to a previous version before updating to the latest version. For example Prior to update your system to BIOS version 03.01.0038 or later, is required to update the system to bridge BIOS version 03.01.2032. 


Having said this, can you please provide us the exact model of your serverboard so we can provide you with the proper BIOS update recommendations?


We will be looking forward to your response.


Best regards,

SDR Package Version :	SDR Package 0.20
Mgmt Engine (ME) FW Rev :	04.01.03.021

and from the commandline:

Hi Sergio,

 

This is the sticker on the motherboard, is it still the S12000POR as you suggest? ?
