[Linux-PowerEdge] Random failing firmware updates

Hi Larry,

I see you provided the file " SAS_RAID_H310MM_20.10.1-0084_A04_ZPE.exe ". The update will fail since it requires the "Update for Microsoft Windows" package format.  For this component, try " SAS-RAID_Firmware_83RR8_WN32_20.10.1-0084_A04.EXE ".

Another observation I see on that system is that the current firmware level "20.11." is higher than the latest update "20.10.".  This is odd but hopefully it does not give you trouble.

Thanks,
Chris

Hello all,

Maybe someone else has seen this.  I have several servers that are failing to update their raid firmware via wsman/recite while several others with the exact same hardware config are passing, below is the output from two servers one that worked and another that failed.  If anyone has any idea why some fail and others don't that would be awesome.
