SunFire x4170 FIRMWARE


#1

Hello,

I recently acquired two Sunfire X4170, 144GB each to run my services on. However the firmware is old and I would like to upgrade it. Unfortunately Oracle bought Sun and now they want you to pay for everything including firmware upgrades.

I am look for the latest version;
ILOM 3.0.16.38.a r112721
BIOS 07.06.03.15

If someone with an Oracle support account could help me I'll greatly appreciate it!

Thanks

I have an Oracle support account through work but unfortunately I only have access to the software downloads. However, in case someone else stumbles here and has an account with firmware download, there's a couple bits of information that I needed in order to do any searching.

Can you confirm if they are the M2, X3-2 (M3) model or just standard X4170? I also see a 4th model mentioned when searching X4170 which is basically the M3 but it says X86 (nashua).

Can you also confirm the Release? This is a required item when searching, this may be what leads to the newest version you're looking for. For example the latest for bog standard X4170 is SW 2.6.9. This returns to me patch 24292949 labeled X4170 SW 2.6.9 - ILOM AND BIOS (Patch) which per the readme looks very close to what you need but it's a different r version than what you mentioned.

Hello,

I was actually looking at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/systems/patches/firmware/release-history-jsp-138416.html#X4170 where the latest version for X4170 is listed as;
ILOM 3.0.16.38.a r112721
BIOS 07.06.03.15
18-Oct-2016.

I looks like this is the second patch you've found.

I was able to find an earlier version;
SP Firmware Version 3.0.16.15.d
SP Firmware Build Number 82498
SP Firmware Date Thu Jul 11 02:44:26 BRT 2013
SP Filesystem Version 0.1.23

which I was able to install successfully on both of my servers.

Thanks for your help.

Hi
I’ve recently got a x4170 and am looking for firmware as well. Does anyone have it?

TBH, I could live with the fw as is but I’m tearing my hair out with a problem that I’m hoping new firmware will fix.

Basically, I can only power the server via ilom. The power button won’t power it up, nor will pulling the power. No errors in the ilom logs nor failing hardware indicated. Go figure :wink:

Thanks
