Hi Mukarram,

The BIOS update using RBU is not supported on 12G servers and you can use OMSA repository (http://linux.dell.com/repo/hardware/latest/)  to update BIOS on your system

Subject: [Linux-PowerEdge] RBU Bios Update not supported on this system

I have a R420 and I am trying to upgrade the firmware using your yum repository.
When get the error when I try to upgrade the BIOS.  I am running CentOS 6.3 64bit on R420.
I tried to look for settings in the BIOS to turn on RBU (Remote Bios Update) but couldn't find it.
Any help would be appreciated.
