This is probably a miss

The workaround for this would be to apply the extracted payload using the iDRAC web interface or racadm firmware update process.

Subject: [Linux-PowerEdge] iDRAC6 2.92 on PowerEdge R210 II


I wanted to update some Dell R210 II servers from iDRAC6 firmware 2.90 to 2.92.

Strangely I get:

# ./ESM_Firmware_KPCCC_LN32_2.92_A00.BIN
This Update Package is not compatible with your system

Your system: PowerEdge R210 II

System(s) supported by this package: R710, R815, T410, R715, R210, R510, T310, R310, T610, R610, R410

Since the fix is purely a security update for remote access, I can't see why it wouldn't be applicable to the R210 II (especially as the R210 is listed).  I haven't tried exploiting the security problems that 2.90 ->
2.92 addresses, but I would be extremely surprised if they aren't present on R210 II and v2.90.

Is this exclusion a mistake?
