Hi Ryan,

Thanks for the tip, nr 1 did the trick.
Although it was strange that the "Dell 32 Bit Diagnostics" & "Dell Lifecycle Controller" was updated again.

[ ~]# racadm racreset soft
RAC reset operation initiated successfully. It may take up to a minute
for the RAC to come back online again.

Stefan,

Two idea that might help:
1)  Reset the idrac.  "ipmitool mc reset cold" from the OS or "racreset"
from the idrac or chassis (be sure to specify that you want to reset that server's idrac).  Then wait a few minutes and try the update again.
2)  Power off the blade. Virtual reseat the server. Try the update again.

Hopefully one of those works.
