Hi,

we have several M600 blades and we detected some issues with their iDRAC
(DRAC hangs, problems with the keyboard and the console, etc.). We are
trying to update the firmware of the iDRAC from 1.11 to 1.20 but the
installer failed with this error:

# ./PEM600_IDRAC_FRMW_LX_R197554.BIN
Collecting inventory...
.................
Running validation...

iDRAC

The version of this Update Package is newer than the currently installed
version.
Software application name: iDRAC
Package version: 1.20
Installed version: 1.11

Continue? Y/N:y
