What are the steps to update ONTAP's Service Processor (SP) or Baseboard Management Controller (BMC)
- Service Processor (SP)
- Baseboard Management Controller (BMC)
- ONTAP 9
To install the BMC image, you need to have access to the following devices:
- A web server on a network accessible to your storage controller
- A serial console connected to the storage controller
You can use either the ONTAP CLI or the BMC CLI to update the BMC. However, you must not use both CLIs at the same time to trigger a BMC update.
Note: The ONTAP CLI is the preferred download method.
