Why is Intel Deployment Assistant showing older versions?

Jump to solution

I just built a new server using an S1200V3RPL board. It has the following versions:

 

BMC: 1.10.5637

 

BIOS: 01.04.0002

 

ME: 03.00.05.068

SDR: 1.06

I booted the Intel Deployment Assistant CD, version 5.2 that shipped with the board. It displays the correct current versions that I have in the BIOS setup.

 

I select Get System Updates, from www.intel.com (recommended), DHCP and direct connection to Internet (I'm using a wired ethernet connection).

 

It then shows Update Package: 1.0 30-August 2013, and clicking Show Contents displays:

 

IBMC Ver: 1.08.5091

SDR Ver: 1.05

BIOS Ver: 01.03.0004

ME Ver: 03.00.04.209

All four appear to be older versions than what I already have installed. Why is the IDA offering me these older versions? There appear to be much newer versions if I check on the web. Should I just forget about using the IDA and update manually instead?

 

Any advice is appreciated, thanks.

I just tried on my end and I got the same results. I am going to report this to our content managers. In the meantime, I would recommend updating the BIOS manually. The most current BIOS version is https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24418/Intel-Server-Board-S1200V3RPL-S1200V3RPO-S1200V3RPM-... 02.02.0005; however, you need to install BIOS version https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/23859/Intel-Server-Board-S1200V3RPL-S1200V3RPO-S1200V3RPM-... 02.01.0002 first.

I will update manually, but I'd really like to know when the problem is fixed, if practical. Thanks for the prompt reply.

Update to 02.01.0002 using the EFI shell completed without a hitch. I actually feel more at home using the shell!

 

POST completed with no issues and I was able to boot Linux from a CD and all seems good so far.

 

I will upgrade to 02.02.0005 tomorrow using the shell, already have it ready on a USB.

 

I think I will do future BIOS upgrades using the shell anyway now that I have become familiar with it.

 

Thanks.
