Abstract

The invention provides a method for refreshing BMC firmware intelligently and automatically. AUTOEXEC.BAT batches and automatically calls intelligent control programs, and the intelligent control programs read product names in a server basic input/output system (BIOS) automatically and determines whether refreshing is required according to the product names. The intelligent control programs exit if refreshing is not required and automatically select corresponding BMC refreshing programs and firmware files to complete refreshing if refreshing is required and exist after refreshing. The whole refreshing operation is fully automatic and can be adjusted to appropriate processes to be completed according to the actual condition instead of being confined to the production debugging process, so that the server production technology process is further optimized. The BMC firmware refreshing operation is optimized, the product names written in the server BIOS are read automatically, and whether refreshing is performed and which version of the firmware files is refreshed are determined automatically, so that intelligence and automation are achieved, labor participation and losses caused by human errors are reduced, and the production efficiency is improved.

Description

A kind of intelligent automation refreshes the method for BMC firmware

Technical field

The present invention relates to the server production technical field, specifically a kind of intelligent automation refreshes the method for BMC firmware.

Background technology

Along with the rise of internet, cloud computing and Internet of Things, the server that server production firm releases is not only competitively priced, also will on function, meet these users' actual demand, now the internet operator is for the O&M cost that alleviates self with first-class service is provided, data center is built in city that need to be different in the whole nation, the server of these data centers need to carry out telemanagement and maintenance, and server production firm just provides this customization server that can realize telemanagement and maintenance function, telemanagement and maintenance are by the IPMI(IPMI) realize, in the IPMI management platform, BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) is core controller, IPMI realizes modules is managed by with BMC, communicating by letter, in a word, on server, need integrated BMC chip, the user just can pass through IKVM (KVM-Over-IP) and realize Long-distance Control and the management to server, in the BMC chip, to write the firmware(firmware, a kind of source program code that is solidificated in IC interior) could work, in server production debug process, the process that just has a BMC firmware to refresh, traditional BMC firmware method that refreshes is that the operation refresh tool writes BMC to firmware under DOS or WEB interface, general firmware file is the 16M-32M left and right, whole refresh process is wanted 10-25 minute, the integrated BMC chip of different server products may be different in addition, the firmware file refreshed is not identical yet, these refresh operations need the commissioning staff to select and carry out, may occur that human error causes refreshing failure, and must manually participate in refresh process, production efficiency is not high, become the bottleneck of server production debugging link, this mode can not meet the demand of server large-scale mass production.

For the problems referred to above, patent of the present invention is exactly the demand of producing in enormous quantities for meeting server, the operation that refreshes BMC firmware is optimized to improvement, by automatically reading the name of product write in server B IOS and judging whether to refresh and refresh which version firmware file, realize intelligent, robotization, reduce the loss that artificial participation and human error are brought, enhance productivity.

Summary of the invention

The purpose of this invention is to provide a kind of method that intelligent automation refreshes BMC firmware.

The objective of the invention is to realize in the following manner, comprising: the AUTOEXEC.BAT batch processing, intelligent control program, BMC refurbishing procedure and firmware file, concrete steps are as follows:

AUTOEXEC.BAT batch processing Automatically invoked intelligent control program, intelligent control program is by automatically reading the name of product in server B IOS, and judge whether to refresh according to name of product, if do not need to refresh, do not exit, if need to refresh, automatically select corresponding BMC refurbishing procedure and firmware file to complete and refresh, refreshed backed off after random.

The invention has the beneficial effects as follows: based on the BMC firmware of this patent, refresh technique and in the production of tide server, be applied, the operation adjustment that refreshes BMC firmware to the burn-in test stage, solved the debugging operation because of the oversize problem that affects productive temp of BMC firmware refresh time, debugging efficiency has improved more than 50%, optimize the server technological process of production, met the demand of large-scale mass production fully.

The operation that refreshes BMC firmware is optimized to improvement, by automatically reading the name of product write in server B IOS and judging whether to refresh and refresh which version firmware file, realize intelligent, robotization, reduce the loss that artificial participation and human error are brought, enhance productivity.

The accompanying drawing explanation

Fig. 1 is the refresh flow figure that intelligent automation refreshes the method for BMC firmware.

Embodiment

With reference to Figure of description, method of the present invention is described in detail below.

Traditional manually-operated: during debugging, operating personnel move the BMC refresh tool under DOS or WEB interface, according to the server product model, selecting corresponding firmware file to complete refreshes, probably needed do not wait in 10-25 minute, and in refresh process, can not carry out other operation, very the efficiency of impact debugging.

The intelligent automation operation: AUTOEXEC.BAT batch processing Automatically invoked intelligent control program, intelligent control program is by automatically reading the name of product in server B IOS, and judge whether to refresh according to name of product, if do not need to refresh, do not exit, if need to refresh, automatically select corresponding BMC refurbishing procedure and firmware file to complete and refresh, refreshed backed off after random; Whole refresh operation full automation, can adjust to suitable operation to refresh operation according to actual conditions and complete, and not only be confined to produce the debugging operation, further the technological process of production of Optimized Service device.

Except the described technical characterictic of instructions, be the known technology of those skilled in the art.
