I followed the instructions on the web site and it downloaded a BIOS,
which I then indicated it should flash at the next reboot:

[root at hcfw1 log]# update_firmware --yes

Searching storage directory for available BIOS updates...

Checking system_bios(ven_0x1028_dev_0x01b3) - 1.2.0
        Found Update: system_bios(ven_0x1028_dev_0x01b3) - 1.3.7

Found out of date packages.

Running updates...
Installing system_bios(ven_0x1028_dev_0x01b3) - 1.3.7
[root at hcfw1 log]#

But when I did the reboot I got the messages:

Attempting BIOS update; please wait
BIOS update attempt failed!

Is there a log file or something that I can check to get more details
about why the flash failed?
