Why BIOS Backup Region Stays at R01.01.0005 in Intel® Server System M50CYP Family after Updating to R01.01.0006?

Environment

Intel® Server System M50CYP Family

BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
Summary

The backup BIOS region of Intel® Server System M50CYP Family is not updated during firmware update

Description

The backup BIOS region is not updated during firmware update and stays at R01.01.0005 in Intel® Server System M50CYP Family after updating to R01.01.0006.

Resolution

This is an expected behavior since there is no SVN (Security Version Number) change from R01.01.0005 to R01.01.0006. Backup BIOS region need not be the latest version and can remain in R01.01.0005. This is only applicable for BIOS updates from R01.01.0005 to R01.01.0006. If you are updating from previous versions to R01.01.0005, back up BIOS will also be updated to R01.01.0005 due to SVN (Security Version Number) change.
