As an MSP we are now looking to automate our Firmware patching on System X servers, which are the majority of our servers out in the wild.

 

We have been doing it manually afterhours for some time, and we are looking to automate it a bit more.  It seems IBM Systems Director is EOL, so I am currently loading up Lenovo Xclarity, which has a big flaw, as an agentless system its only for the local network, not to connect to 40+ Servers sitting on client sites. 

Is there a viable alternative software to allow us a GUI to update multiple servers Firmware's at remote sites in one go? we are 80% systemX Lenovo/IBM servers, and perhaps 20% HP servers at our client sites.

If you are just pushing latest, setup a scheduled task with OneCli? Otherwise scheduled task to pull down and execute a script/ini from the cloud that does the specific updates you want via OneCli?

I've only just started looking into this now, never event thought of onecli,  as I have done everything gui in the past.  We have been doing it manually so far, and while we still want to firmware update manually, (old habits die hard)  having a visual indication of where we are with the firmware status of our servers will greatly improve our services

 

will have to run the onecli acquire as a custom scheduled task say once a month per server, has to be custom per server due to different Machine types

 

can use our RMM for the rest, perhaps a monthly compare report fired back into Labtech, custom data field to query, giving us notification, and then allowing us to schedule a CLI run firmware update process.
