Updating BIOS, BMC, ME with Linux flashupdt error - BMC Firmware is already in Transfer Mode on Intel 2U R2308GZ4GC

I was trying to update via Linux using flashupdt command server's BIOS/BMC/ME and etc. For some reason I always get an error in return:


Error BMC Firmware is already in Transfer Mode. Cannot start the update process.

What do I do so I could continue update process?


Best regards,



P.S. I downloaded this pack from Intel Website: Intel® Server Board S2600GZ/GL Firmware Update for IDA and OFU. Is this correct?
