    • For more information, please refer to the R01.01.0005 Out of Band (OOB) FW Component Update Installation Guide.
  • Please refer to the respective "Release Notes" files for complete list of known issues, workarounds and detailed requirements.
  • Firmware check is not applicable, hence updates will be triggered even when the versions in the system and in the SFUP package are same
  • Do NOT interrupt or reboot or remove power from your system during the update process. Doing so may render your system inoperable.
  • Do NOT attempt to down rev the system software once loaded on to the system. Doing so may render your system inoperable.
  • All updates provided in this package are installed using the windows and Linux operating environment only.
  • Do not modify any of the script files. The scripts as written will provide the most reliable update experience.
  • Refer to the userguide which is available in sysfwupdt folder for any update scenarios or sysfwupdt commands.
