I had manually updated all the missing firmwares. So, we'll try next time
if same thing happens. For the R710 aborting due to bad xml file,
I had tried the 'yum install $(bootstrap_firmware)' and even 'yum
reinstall $(bootstrap_firmware)' during several OMSA and firmware_tools
reinstalls, without any luck.
Thanks Jeff.
