Hello Andrew,

 

 

Please try force updating the BMC firmware from https://downloadcenter.intel.com/downloads/eula/26380/Intel-Server-Board-S2600WT-BIOS-and-Firmware-U... https://downloadcenter.intel.com/downloads/eula/26380/Intel-Server-Board-S2600WT-BIOS-and-Firmware-U...

 

 

The BMC Force Update jumper is used to put the BMC in Boot Recovery mode for a low-level update. It causes the BMC to abort its normal boot process and stay in the boot loader without executing any Linux code.

 

 

This jumper should only be used if the BMC firmware has gotten corrupted and requires re-installation. The following procedure should be followed:

 

Note: System Update files are included in the System Update Packages (SUP) posted to Intel's Download Center web site. http://downloadcenter.intel.com http://downloadcenter.intel.com

 

1. Turn off the system.

 

2. Remove the AC power cords

 

Note: If the BMC FRC UPD jumper is moved with AC power applied to the system, the BMC will not operate properly.

 

3. Remove the system top cover.

 

4. Move the "BMC FRC UPD" Jumper from pins 1 - 2 (default) to pins 2 - 3 (Force Update position)

 

5. Re-install the system top cover and re-attach the AC power cords

 

6. Power on the system

 

7. Boot to the EFI shell

 

8. Change directories to the folder containing the update files

 

9. Update the BMC firmware using the following command:

 

FWPIAUPD -u -bin -ni -b -o -pia -if=usb

 

10. When the update has successfully completed, power off the system

 

11. Remove the AC power cords

 

12. Remove the system top cover

 

13. Move the "BMC FRC UPD" jumper back to pins 1-2 (default)

 

14. Re-attach the AC power cords

 

15. Power on system

 

16. Boot to the EFI shell

 

17. Change directories to the folder containing the update files

 

18. Re-install the board/system SDR data by running the FRUSDR utility

 

19. After the SDRs have been loaded, reboot the server.

 

 

Refer to the following image for jumper settings:

 

 

Please let me know if issue is resolved after following our recommendations.

 

 

Best regards,

Hello Andrew,

Please try reformatting the USB drive as FAT 32 and redownload the Firmware update package just in case any files were corrupted.

Please let me know of the results.

Regards,

Caesar B.

Hello Andrew,

 

 

I have a couple of questions in regards of this issue. You mentioned you have two boards and the update worked on the first one.

 

 

Could you check if both boards have the same PBA number (white sticker on the board)?

 

 

Have you been able to install firmware updates on this board before? If so, did it present any issues in the past?

 

 

We might as well also consider updating to firmware version 0018 to compare results and then try to update to 0019. Here is the package to update to version 0018 (downgrade), we should be able to downgrade the firmware with no issues.

  • I have 2 different USB drive format to FAT32.
  • PBA G92187-366 on both boards.
  • No, I update firmware on this boards at first time. It's new server.
  • I try to update to version 0018 (downgrade), BIOS downgrade correct, but BMC version stay on 1.47.10181. Also I can't change FRU information on board.
  • I try downgrade BMC with force update procedure, but BMC stay on 1.47.10181

Hello dusharu ,

BIOS downgrade from 0019 is not allowed from the OS and can only be performed on uEFI shell using the BIOS recovery jumper method (Refer to page 109 of thehttp://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/server-products/server-boards/S2600WT_TPS_R... Technical Product Specifications (TPS) for Intel® Server Boards S2600WT/R1000WT/R2000WT).

You could get more information from the https://downloadmirror.intel.com/26380/eng/Release.txt Release Notes

Please try this method and let us know if issue persists.

Best regards,

Caesar B.

I downgrade using the BIOS recovery jumper method.

Now, I have:

  • BIOS: SE5C610.86B.01.01.0018.072020161249
  • BMC FW - 1.47.10181
  • ME - 03.01.03.32
  • SDR - 1.13a

UPD:

I try downgrade BMC using recovery jumper method. In UEFI I check what BMC install correct, but after reboot I see BMC v1.47.10181 in BIOS(F2->Setup Menu->Server Managment ->System Information)

UPD2:

System Error is clear.
