I've been applying firmware updates within the OS (using "update_firmware"), 
then rebooting and letting things like the BIOS update happen, via SSH to 
the iDRAC serial console for many years.  Yes, that message pops up, but the 
firmware application process still happens.  Unless you're trying to do 
something interactive (which I'll admit I might have missed in this thread), 
I don't see the problem.
