BIOS Versions

Recommendation: After a BIOS update load the default settings of the BIOS, and adjust the configuration as suggested below at BIOS Configuration.

  • Version 1.1 (BIOS Date 07/19/2013)
    • Version release date for quality assurance update on: 9/9/2013.
  • Version 1.0b (BIOS Date 06/13/2013)
    • Version release date for quality assurance update on: 7/15/2013.

BIOS Settings

At Thomas Krenn, after loading the default settings the following BIOS configuration adjustments are applied before a server with this motherboard gets its test installation and gets shipped:

Advanced          > Boot Feature                    > Quiet Boot                    > Disable
                  > PCIe/PCI/PnP Configuration      > Onboard LAN1 Option ROM       > PXE
                                                    > Onboard LAN2 Option ROM       > PXE

Another option is to SATA Raid Settings depending on the server configuration.

Boot              > Boot Options Priority           > Floppy
                                                    > CD/DVD
                                                    > Festplatte
                                                    > Netzwerk


IPMI Versions

  • Version 1.10
    • Version release date for quality assurance update on: 7/15/2013.
    • The hook should be removed during configuration preserve when updating this firmware - (Unckecking this option will restore the factory default setting of BMC), so you can be sure that all updates are correctly applied and that the sensors are properly displayed. The removal of the hook should set the IPMI modules back to the factory defaults and therefore, the IP address and all settings must be reconfigured either by ipmicfg or another way - see IPMI Configuration for Supermicro Systems
