Management-module firmware is in several separate files that are installed independently; you must install all of the firmware update files. You can obtain the firmware files from

Important: Make sure that the role or command authority level that is set for each user is correct after you update the management-module firmware, because these definitions might change between firmware versions.

If a standby management module is installed in a BladeCenter unit that previously had only one management module, the firmware in the new management module is updated to the firmware version that is in the primary (already installed) management module. This update takes place when the standby management module is installed. It does not matter whether the new management module contains a later firmware version: the firmware version of the primary management module takes precedence. It can take up to 45 minutes to update the firmware in the standby management module and transfer the management-module configuration.
