Hi All

We have been using a Linux Live OS with some Ansible magic for quite some
time now to update our servers except it has recently come to my attention
that DSU is not updating CPLD or PS FW's.

These show in when running the inventory check but don't show when running
DSU to update. See below:

Now trying to run an update:

Any idea's on why this might be the case?
