The updates you are trying to apply are not Dell-authorized updates

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”.

Symptom:

Error message “The updates you are trying to apply are not Dell-authorized updates”

The updates you are trying to apply are not Dell-authorized updates

The updates you are trying to apply are not Dell-authorized updates

Solution:

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.
