Subject: Firmware updates not being applied to PE2950

Here are the steps I've followed to get to this point...

yum -y install procmail OpenIPMI
chkconfig --level 345 ipmi on
service ipmi start

wget -q -O - http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/latest/bootstrap.cgi | bash
yum -y install srvadmin-all

#relogin

srvadmin-services.sh enable
srvadmin-services.sh start

wget -q -O - http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/bootstrap.cgi | bash

wget -q -O - http://linux.dell.com/repo/firmware/bootstrap.cgi | bash

yum -y install firmware-addon-dell
yum -y install dell_ft_install
yum -y install $(bootstrap_firmware)

-------


I wouldn't configure both the old firmware repo and the current hardware repo.

Try:
Removing the firmware repo
Removing firmware-tools and everything that depends on it.
Redo: yum -y install dell_ft_install
	yum -y install $(bootstrap_firmware)
Run: update_firmware --yes -v
Capture: /var/log/firmware-updates.log

Send the output of the update command and the log.
