Which BIOS version does your RX300s8 run on?

Since iRMC FW 7.73, at least BIOS 1.15 is required, and with such a ridiculously old iRMC version, chances are that your board's BIOS is similarly old. Besides the fact that there are always dependencies between iRMC and board...

Did you consider to perform a "complete" system update using ServerView Update DVD, instead of a challenging attempt to force your iRMC into directly jump from 7.19 to 8.64?

Hope you are doing good!

Thanks for your reply.

As you asked, I checked and found BIOS info as below:-
The server is mounted in remote location, Running OS is ESXi 5.5. I'm using iRMC to access the server. Is it possible to system update using ServerView Update DVD remotely.

BIOS InformationBIOS Version: V4.6.5.4 R1.6.0 for D2939-B1x
