DELL PowerEdge R420/ESXi環境でiDRACのアップデートを行う

ESXi7.0がインストールされているDELL PowerEdge R420のiDRACが更新されていないことに気がついたのでアップデートを試みた

Invalid option: --packagepath=/scratch/tmp/Network_Firmware_7CM1N_LN_21.60.16.BIN
Try -h or --help for help.

というわけでおとなしくiDRACのWeb UIからファームウェアアップデート

iDRAC-with-Lifecycle-Controller_Firmware_0GHF4_LN_2.65.65.65_A00.BIN を7zipで開いてpayload/firmimg.d7 を読み込ませるとアップデートできます。
