    Firmware Updates... Where to start!

    hendahenry

      I've purchased an Intel server from a authorized vendor, and want to update the mainboard firmware to the latest.

       

      The mainboard is a S2600CW2R. According to the online analyzer, my firmware is:

       

      MOTHERBOARD INFORMATION
      Manufacturernot detected
      ModelS2600CWR
      AA NumberH12881-271
      BIOS VendorIntel Corporation
      BIOS VersionIntel Corporation SE5C610.86B.01.01.0016.033120161139
      BIOS Release Date12/02/13
      System Memory32 GB

       

      I've looked at the firmware download page, and discovered that my firmware is rather old. 

       

      Two questions:

       

      1) Can I simply install the latest firmware? Or do I have to install every revision since the one installed?

       

      2) There is something called a "FRUFIX" (Download Intel® Server Board S2600CWR FRUFIX Utility ) - Do I need it for my mainboard?

       

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
