Offline mode - Server is booted to the .ISO image

  • Automatic mode - Firmware components will be updated without interaction
  • Automatic mode will by default run firmware update without any user interaction after sitting 10 seconds at the menu screen when an SPP .iso image is used to boot the server.
  • Interactive mode - Follow the onscreen steps to update firmware components
