“This Update Package is not compatible with your system configuration” during dell firmware upgrade

i encountered that error while upgrading firmware for PERC6/I raid controller on dell’s poweredge 1950 server.

solution at the end turned out to be simple. most of servers i take care of runs debian, for every upgrade i use OMSA live cds.. apparently update packages work only with the recent versions of it – i had 6.01 and that was not good enough. using OMSA live 6.4 solved the problem.

    1. dracs… are another story. they hang for me. apparently i’m one of very few dell customers in the world that get this error. cards stop responding after few weeks/months of working. first they still arp/listen on TCP ports and after that they no longer arp.. they are gone till the server is powercycled. anyway – i’m glad it worked for you!
