Sun Blade 6000 firmware update

    The Sun Blade 6000 Modular Computing products have been out for several months now, and have been getting good press, like this Infoworld article. While they liked the Sun Blade 6000, one thing that was noted in this article is the lack of the browser-based user interface (BUI) to the ILOM, which the Sun Blade 8000 has. It was noted that the BUI feature was coming, and good news, it has arrived. Here is a link to the recently released Sun Blade 6000 chassis 1.1a firmware, which adds this functionality. So now you can use your choice of CLI (Command Line Interface) or BUI for managing and monitoring your Sun Blade 6000 chassis and blades, just like on the Sun Blade 8000.

    While you're updating firmware, make sure you check out what's available for the compute modules you have, at the Sun Blade 60000 & 8000 Modular Systems - Downloads page. There are downloads of firmware and supplemental software for the various compute modules available for the Sun Blade 6000, including a short description of what's new in each update. Not only will you find updates to BIOS, ILOM, ELOM, Diagnostic CDs, etc, but there is also the Sun Fire x64 Servers Management Pack 3.0 for Microsoft Operations Manager 2005, making it easier to manage your x64 systems from Sun using the Microsoft Operations Manager 2005. More on managing Sun's x64 systems in a future post, so stay tuned.
