Issue Description Workaround

CSESF-295

The compute node firmware update process fails with a BIOS update error when you update the firmware on a H410C node using the downloadable firmware package.

Manually update the BIOS to version NA3.7 on the H410C node:
1. Browse to the NetApp HCI Downloads page.
2. Enter H410C_BIOS_3.7 in the drop down list text field.
3. Click Go.
Instructions for updating are available in PDF format on the download page.

After you update the BIOS and BMC, update the H410C node firmware using the compute firmware 12.2.109 package.
