When you try to use the Lifecycle Platform (F10) Updates option in System Services to update firmware, you may get the following error: “The updates you are trying to apply are not Dell-authorized updates”.
Error message “The updates you are trying to apply are not Dell-authorized updates”
Update below two components firmware to reach the minimum require:
- iDRAC – at least revision 1.85 or newer
- Lifecycle Controller – at least revision 1.5.2 or newer
*The current Lifecycle Controller Repair package will NOT resolve the issue, as it only updates the LFC to version 1.5.1, which is too old.
The iDRAC is easily updated by using the “Update” option in the iDRAC webpage interface, you can also update it in OS.
The Lifecycle Controller can (as of 11/9/12) only be updated in a Windows or Linux environment. For ESXi users, you can boot to OMSA Live and apply the LFC .bin update via command line.
Lifecycle Controller 1.5.5
