iDrac6 firmware update – fixed

Spent a whole weekend trying to upgrade the iDrac from 1.7.0 -> 2.92 (latest as the time of writing this article Feb 2022 ) of a DELL Poweredge R610 with the sole purpose of having a solid pfSense machine.

I have read and tried all the suggestions on DELL forums, regarding waiting X minutes before each operation etc.

This morning, after 4 hours of sleep only i got the idea of installing an older browser – and i chose Firefox 3.6.28 and …EVRIKA!
