Dell firmware updates on xenserver 6.5

If you are running your xenserver on Dell servers you need to install dell_ft_install repo

If you want firmware updates, just install the glibc.i686 from CentOS along with dell_ft_install:

yum –-enablerepo=base,updates install glibc.i686 dell_ft_install


yum install $(bootstrap_firmware)

First you need to run update_firmware to check if there is firmware to be updated


If it finds firmware to be updated you should use the –yes switch

update_firmware –-yes
