[Linux-PowerEdge] Check for firmware staged to Lifecycle Controller

Thanks all,

Sounds simple but doesn't work for me though. Originally tried with OMSA 8.1, and have just updated to 8.3 and get the same result. I've staged both a BIOS update and an iDRAC firmware update by executing the firmware packages by hand (sh ./*.BIN -q) and the job queue is always empty, yet I'm pretty sure if I reboot this R720 it will do a BIOS and iDRAC update :-)




[root at test-i40e ~]# sh /tmp/iDRAC-with-Lifecycle-Controller_Firmware_W719V_LN_2.32.31.30_A00.BIN -q

To view jobs scheduled on the LCC, I use: 

racadm jobqueue view 

If you do 

racadm jobqueue help view 

It gives more example syntax, just as to drill into a specific job to view details of that job.

Hello, 

Does anyone know if there's a way to tell if the Lifecycle Controller will try apply firmware on next reboot? We've had a few situations where firmware updates were staged, but for whatever reason only some of them were applied during a scheduled reboot. Then another reboot some time later there is more applied when we don't expect it. Perhaps a command to query the LC for any scheduled jobs?
