HP iLO2: Firmware Upgrade Via Webpage Failed

Trying to firmware upgrade HP iLO2 from version 2.07 or 1.81 to 2.22 results in the error message ‘firmware upgrade via webpage failed’  Using a .bin file via a Windows Server.

Troubleshooting Steps

  • Enabled compatibility mode in IE9, this resulted in Firmware loading to 99% and then timing out
  • Enabled compatibility mode in IE10, again this resulted in Firmware loading to 99% and then timing out
  • Tried using Google Chrome, again this resulted in Firmware loading to 99% and then timing out

Resolution

It seems strange but the firmware upgrade will work using Mozilla Firefox.  Using this browser results in success, I’m now on iLO2 firmware 2.22.

  1. This was the righ heads up for me too, thanks a lot, i did go from 1.26 to 2.26 and thought first that i have to install one by one.

  2. Thanks so much!!! You know how long I’ve been dealing with a flaky server that I NEEDED up upgrade to iLo 2+ so I could use the remote console blah blah….

    I thought I was going mad – getting to 99% and then failing.

    THANK YOU!!!!

  3. I was not able to get to the iLO login page in Firefox. Added the IP in Firefox Security exception and was able to flash the firmware successfully. IE11 never worked for me.
