Firmware update to the EN6131 40 Gb Ethernet Switch or the IB6131 InfiniBand Switch fails unexpectedly

Use this information to troubleshoot an unexpected failure when updating the firmware for the EN6131 40 Gb Ethernet Switch or the IB6131 InfiniBand Switch.

  1. Check the job log for an error message from the switch, such as Not enough disk space available to download image.
    Note: There might be additional information in jobs log. Often, this is in the format of IOM: Reported ***ERROR*** msg, where msg is the specific error for that module.
  2. Check your network speed and stability. Updating firmware might fail if the update is not completed within 30 minutes.

  3. Free up sufficient disk space on the switch for the update file. The disk space is used when copying update files to the switch. See the Lenovo Flex System EN6131 40Gb Ethernet Switch in the Flex Systems online documentation for instructions on managing disk space.
  4. Perform the update again from Lenovo XClarity Administrator.
