Hi sir,

 

Best recipe is for ThinkAgile solution. x3650M4 7915 doesn't have best recipe. We advise update the firmware &driver to latest version.

Hi, Paul Lee.

Your referred information is created for Lenovo systemx and ThinkSystem products. Similar information for IBM Systemx products are published as VMware network I/O adapter best recipe and latest version was created at 2018.

See below information.

Thank you.

Hi, Paul.

 

I repeatdly said.. could you please use public discussion forum instead of private message?

For your question below.

 

***

Is that Server M4 Model 7915 is not Lenovo model.
Is that is a IBM server.
For now, i downloaded BOMC version 12 from Lenovo site and run it into the M4 server.
Found it only updated UEFI and IMM2.
Not sure only above updated because i downloaded from Lenovo site.
So is that i need to download from IBM website.
Please advise further.
All the way i was using lenovo site for downloading tools.
Moving forward which wich website should i use Lenovo or IBM fix central.

***

 

My comment for your question are below.

 

IBM Systemx product Driver/ firmware is available on IBM Fixcentral.

Lenovo Systemx product Driver/ firmware is available on Lenovo support site.

 

About BoMC, this tool now develop/maintain by Lenovo, and support both IBM Systemx/Lenovo Systemx products  (supported IBM Systemx product are most recent systems so old products like M3/M2 are not contained as supported system).

BoMC check what products are selected by the user and change connection web site. If user selects IBM Systemx products, tools connect to IBM Fixcentral and download appropriate firmware package. If user selects Lenovo Systemx products, tools connect to Lenovo Support site and download appropriate firmware package.

And BoMC use Linux update package on BoMC own OS for the firmware update. so if package are not provided as independent linux firmware update package, or package does not match to run on BoMC own OS because of quite old package, it does not contain in the BoMC.  So repeatedly I suggest to download it independently and run on customer' OS itself.

 

If you can't update specific adapter firmware and you think this is an issue, please contact local support to get their help.

 

Thank you.

"Best Recipe" which talked above is not a recipe for ThinkAgile but means "Lenovo VMware I/O drivers and firmware code recipe". 

https://vmware.lenovo.com/content/recipe/index.html

 

But as you wrote IBM systemx product are not described on Lenovo Vmware code recipe but need to refer PDF document on Fixcentral.
