    Overview

    This document provides instructions for updating the BIOS and firmware for the following components that are

    part of the Dell EMC Ready Solution for VMware vCloud NFV 3.0 OpenStack Edition Platform deployment:

     Dell EMC PowerEdge R640

     Dell EMC PowerEdge R740

     Dell EMC PowerEdge R740xd

    To maintain the highest levels of security and peak performance, BIOS and firmware updates for the systems

    as well as other attached hardware, are key for ongoing operational solutions. All hardware components and

    the current version of firmware, are viewable in the Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller 9, or iDRAC9,

    application.

    1 Update firmware through iDRAC 9 Each hardware element of the VMware vCloud NFV system needs to be updated to include the most recent

    version of firmware. The update can be applied to the following:

     BIOS

     iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller (firmware for both are updated using a single file)

     Dell HBA ADP/Mini storage controller

     NIC card

     Backplane

    Prerequisites:

     Network access to http://www.dell.com/support

     Ability for each node to access iDRAC

    1.1 Steps to update firmware Download the hardware firmware files for the necessary system to update the Dell EMC Ready Bundle for

    and then click Submit.

    Note: You do not need to enter the service tag for every server since they are all in the same server family

    since they use the same firmware versions. Storage controller and backplane firmware files are changed

    according to the hardware model.

    3. On the next screen, select the Drivers and downloads link.

    4. Select the required firmware file.

    5. Click the Download button and save the file to a local machine.
