Firmware update tools
Intel® Server Board S2600ST Family
- Downgrading below 1.43.660a4315 is not supported due to a security revision change.
- All updates provided in this package are installed using the embedded uEFI operating environment only.
- Don't modify any of the script files. The scripts as written will provide the most reliable update experience.
- If for any reason the System BIOS, BMC Firmware, or FRU and SDR data need to be re-installed after the initial update has been performed, the package does include standalone script files that can be run individually. These files include: UpdBIOS.nsh, UpdMe.nsh, UpdFD.nsh, fwUpdateBMC.nsh, and updS2600STB.nsh.
Don't use these files until after the system has been updated initially using the Startup.nsh file.
Warning: This release has the BMC PCIe bridge disabled. This will cause the majority of operating systems to fail at boot as they stall during video driver initialization.
Steps to recover a failing operating system:
Linux* variants (one of the below):
- Ensure that the modprobe.blacklist=ast parameter is set in your boot loader (grub).
- Ensure that you are using a kernel version v4.10 or newer.
