Hi

The CPLD and Power Supply firmware packages are  NOT included in the default catalog. If you want to update the PowerSupply and CPLD then create a repository with DellEMC Repository Manager ( DRM) tool by importing PowerSupply and CPLD components in repository. Then use exported repository to update CPLD and PowerSupply components using DSU.

The information and download of DRM is available in link - https://www.dell.com/support/article/us/en/04/sln283183/support-for-dell-emc-repository-manager-drm?lang=en#download

Thanks
Santosh

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:
