Lenovo ThinkServer RD650 - BIOS,TSM,etc problem to update

2019-07-21, 14:33 PM

Hello there

my server doesn't show any things in system summary section as mentioned below:

 

Cause of this,i am not able to do Firmware Update

As you see everything is 0.0.0 in version

 

When i try to upload a firmware bundle just like BIOS,TDM or TSM this message appears:

Infact there is no network or power issue due to update.

How can i update all section of firmware (BIOS,TDM,TSM)?

Regards

Matthew

Hi Matthew,

 

TDM is also an option as the interface to update BIOS firmware bundle, please refer to the video for more detailed.

Hi ccchen

Thank you for your quick reply on this issue.

I watched the vido,but there is a bigger problem here.When I reboot the server to access TDM Boot (F10) the screen went black and after 5seconds it starts to boot the local OS installed on its ssd.

I mean that the TDM section which i can update the BIOS,TSM,etc... would not be load

even i try to update it in TSM web and it shows this:

Is there any other solution to fix this?

Hi matthew,

 

Do you perform a TSM restart command?

If the network connectivity between your leaptop and the BMC on the target server is connected, please try the following ipmi command to proceed.

 

#ipmitool -I lanplus -H <BMC IP> -U <BMC Username> -P <BMC password> raw 0x06 0x03

this command is equal to 

#ipmitool -I lanplus -H <BMC IP> -U <BMC Username> -P <BMC password> mc reset warm

 

If a warm rest command of the TSM is unable to send, please use below command to perform a  cold reset of the TSM.

#ipmitool -I lanplus -H <BMC IP> -U <BMC Username> -P <BMC password> raw 0x06 0x02

this command is equal to #ipmitool -I lanplus -H <BMC IP> -U <BMC Username> -P <BMC password> mc reset cold

 

Wait for the BMC reset (~ 5 minutes) to complete the restart process.

 

And log in the TSM, try to update the firmware again.

Hi again
I perform those commands.
At the first step i try to "reset warm"
and try to update firmware but still the server sent back the error "Unable to access the server. Please check the network and the power cable."
At the second step i perform the command "reset cold" and after the reset of TSM,the error to update firmware is still there : "Unable to access the server. Please check the network and the power cable."
There is not any other way or solution to fix it?!

Hi Matthew,

 

Could you restart your server and press F1 to enter bios setup page?

Please check the TSM firmware revision and the TSM status in BIOS if there's a version indicated on that page and also the TSM status is working or in another status.

Hi ccchen,

 

I reviving this thread as I am facing the same issue. In addition to that, I cannot get access to Virtual Console and the server is installed at a remote location. As a result, I cannot enter BIOS screen to check the fields you are suggesting.

 

Any idea about what to do next?

 

Best regards,

Stamatis
