Problem with SUU DVD image?

I think it's for the compatibility of multiple platforms of browsers:

To address a browser limitation around downloading large files (see
Microsoft KB article 298618: You cannot download files that are 2 GB or
larger - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/298618), the Dell Server
Updates DVD as a single ISO file is no longer available for web
download.

As per the disclaimer on the download section. (I really and appreciate
the irony in posting a Microsoft KB article on a Linux users list.)

Thanks!

Girgio,
I went through the same experience at a recovery situation at a client
site. Why would the ISO be split up for download?? It seems rather odd
with today's network bandwidth availability.

You need both images: it's a dvd splitted in two.
You have to merge the two in one

- (windows) copy /b OM_6.1.0_SUU_A00.00*.iso OM_6.1.0_SUU_A00.iso
- (linux) cat OM_6.1.0_SUU_A00.00*.iso > OM_6.1.0_SUU_A00.iso
