linux系统下dell PowerEdge2650服务器BIOS升级

最近买了两条2G的内存,插上后发现系统每条只认到了1G,我一般很少怀疑别人的人品的,所以想到可能是BIOS版本太低。

在dell的网站上转啊转,在一大堆英文中找到了2650的linux版BIOS升级程序。

wget http://ftp.us.dell.com/bios/PE2650_BIOS_LX_A21.BIN

找台机下载后执行一下

chmod +x PE2650_BIOS_LX_A21.BIN

./PE2650_BIOS_LX_A21.BIN

晕,这个程序用到了rpm等redhat特有的东东,在debian上运行不起来,尝试在debian下安装这些东西,结果失败。

没办法,dell的这个程序只支持redhat和windows,其它版本的操作系统跑不了,我也不想硬来,免得罗嗦。

问人借台机先试一下吧,找了台redhat el5的服务器,运行一下:

./PE2650_BIOS_LX_A21.BIN

等了好一阵子,要有耐心,就会出来一个说明文字,纯英文哦,我看不太懂,先把它拷贝存着,然后按q键跳过说明文字,继续安装:

Error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5:

cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

You must install the Linux compatibility libraries.

To install the compatibility libraries, use the following command:

"rpm -ih compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.3.i386.rpm"

飘错了,libstdc++没装,在google上搜吧,找到一个:

wget ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/www.startcom.org/AS-4.0.0/os/i386/StartCom/RPMS/compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.3.i386.rpm

rpm -ivh compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.3.i386.rpm

这个包居然没有其它依赖,顺利安装完成,重新运行吧:

./PE2650_BIOS_LX_A21.BIN

……说明文字……按q跳过

嗯,这正是我想要的结果了。

今晚去升级那台有两条2G内存的机器,初步定的计划是拿一块2650的装有redhat el5的硬盘,插进去开机改好ip,然后远程升级重启。

升级过程还算顺利,从A10版升级到了A21版,但是并没有能解决2G内存的问题。

想不到办法了,只能退回去换4根1G的。
