You can use the HUU ISO to upgrade components of the server from the host locally with a writable disk (DVD or CD), or remotely by mounting the HUU ISO as a virtual device. This following procedure explains how to upgrade the firmware using the HUU:
|Step 1||Download the HUU
|Step 2||If you want to prepare the ISO for a local upgrade, complete this step; Otherwise, go to Step 3.|
|Step 3||Prepare the ISO
for a remote upgrade using the
|Step 4||Boot the server and press F6 when prompted to open the Boot Menu screen.|
|Step 5||In the
