It's unlikely that you can upgrade a S5000XVN using S3200SH BIOS, because the upgrade utility should check system ID before performing the upgrade... Anyway, you can try the following steps:
1. Locate the CMOS Clear Jumper (J1D1) and place it on pins 2-3. Wait for 5-10 seconds and place the jumper back to 1-2 and power on the system.
2. If step 1 doesn't work, try to boot from BIOS bank 0 by placing the BIOS Bank Select jumper (J1C3) to pins 1-2.
3. If the system still won't boot, try the BMC Force Update jumper (J1E3).
If the system can boot after you move any of the jumpers above, do a BIOS/FW update immediately.
Thank you very much for your help, it worked and i am able to boot now, but i get an error in bios "Error Manager"
Error Code = 84F2 - Severity= Major - Instance = n/a.
I can't see any SAS HD (have 2) but able to see the SATA HD.
if i try to update using Server Deployment Assistant i get this error:
*ERROR* BMC is in FW Transfer Mode. Unable to continue whih the operetion.
If i use the EFI Shell I'll gets this error:
"is not recognized as internal or external command, operable program or batch file"
just so you know how much mess i have created, I was tired of the Fan noise in SC5299WS Chassis with S5000XVN motherboard so stupid me i followed this recomandation from Rajiv doolup on this pagewithout checking if this applies to me, so i did it and that is the resault.
you already gave me hope as i thought i killed the board, but now that is back to life, if i can pass this "BMC is in FW Transfer Mode" issue then I am able to update the EFI.
Thanks for your help and advise.
Hi if i try the BMC65.bat i get this error:
"Platform group ID's don't match in the PIA.
THe update cannot continue."
I believe you moved the BMD Force Update jumper (J1E3) and your server can boot am I right? If so the message you received in IDA is expected.
Can you try to boot to DOS and run the following command manually in the BMC65.bat directory:
fwpiaupd -u -b -o -pia -ni -p -noverify -nopc SLBMC65.hex
Thanks Edward for your advise and time, it worked and system is back to normal. i also try the deployment assistant and no problem. Thank you very much again for your help.
I recently built a new system using the S5000XVN with 2 x E5410 cpu's 16GB RAM and installed everything into the SC5299DP. The initial startup and update to the firmware using the Server Deployment Toolkit CD went very smoothly etc.
After a few days of use I noticed the front indicator was flashing amber, I checked the LED's at the rear and the (LED B) SYSTEM LED is flashing amber/red. However when I remove the power cable, reconnect and start the machine everything goes Green but soon after the POST checks the LED B starts to flash amber/red.
So I decided to run the Server Deployment Toolkit CD again and tried to update the BIOS etc but now each time I try this I receive a error:
"Update file not available for download. Please try a different update file or try again later [0x05000006]"
I have cleared the BIOS by using the jumper and repeated the process again but still get the same message.
I have checked there is not problem with the networking, I have tried both DHCP/STATIC and i can connect successfully to a network share.
I am wondering whether there is a fault with the new motherboard?
