and this exists in our local copy of the repo too but it was not 
installed when running dsu...

[qqs43472 at cs04r-sc-vserv-72 dell_dsu]$ ls -l dsu
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root apache 13 Mar 14 17:15 dsu -> DSU_18.03.00/
[qqs43472 at cs04r-sc-vserv-72 dell_dsu]$ ls -l 
dsu/os_independent/noarch/BIOS_WDY2P_LN_2.4.3-2.4.3-18.03.00.noarch.rpm
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root apache 16064413 Mar  9 09:50 
dsu/os_independent/noarch/BIOS_WDY2P_LN_2.4.3-2.4.3-18.03.00.noarch.rpm

we are having to manually install the newer bios (with spectre 
mitigation) on 12G, 13G and 14G PowerEdge.
