Subject: Re: [Linux-PowerEdge] Power Supply firmware version missmatch?

Since the release of the power supply firmware updates last fall there have been a number of version mismatches I've been able to confirm that only affects 12G servers.

I've reported the mismatch to Dell on a number of different occasions as it shows as non-complaint in OME.

Flextronics 750W PSU (PN: N30P9, 6W2PW & D5MW8) Firmware Package

Installed = 69.45.9B ; Listed = 6B.47.9B

Delta 750W PSU (PN: 9PXCV & 5NF18) Firmware Package

Installed = 07.2B.80 ; Listed = 09.2B.80

Until a new update is released, I don't think anyone can resolve the issue.

Hi there!

On several R720/R720xd machines I find an inconsistency with the Power Supply firmware and dsu:

When running dsu it suggest the following update:
[ ]12 Power Supply
 Current Version : 07.13.54 Upgrade to : 09.13.59

committing this starting the update I see:
Installing Power_Firmware_FR60C_LN_09.13.59...
Collecting inventory...
Running validation...

Power Supply

The version of this Update Package is newer than the currently installed version.
Software application name: Power Supply
Package version: 09.13.59
Installed version: 07.13.54

After the reboot (which includes a power of for about 10 min) I ran dsu again and now I see:
[ ]12 Power Supply
 Current Version : 07.13.59 Upgrade to : 09.13.59

So despite the package version was supposed to upgrade to 9.13.59 it upgraded to 7.13.59 - I can live with that but it seems an incorrect behavior of dsu.
