ESA-2014-039: RSA Appliance Security Update for Dell iDRAC7
|Issue||How to upgrade the firmware on Dell iDRAC7 through the command line interface on RSA Security Analytics appliances.|
To fix several vulnerabilities in the iDRAC firmware, follow these instructions to download and upgrade the firmware in a Dell iDRAC7.
This solution requires that the iDRAC7 be configured and enabled and accessible via the console or through an ssh session. For this operation, the console is preferable. If an ssh session is interrupted during the upgrade it could render the iDRAC unusable.
If the iDRAC7 is not configured and not connected to a network there is no reason to upgrade the firmware.
