Automated boot recovery (ABR)

While the server is starting, if the integrated management module II detects problems with the server firmware in the primary bank, the server automatically switches to the backup firmware bank and gives you the opportunity to recover the firmware in the primary bank.

For instructions for recovering the UEFI firmware, see Recovering the server firmware (UEFI update failure). After you have recovered the firmware in the primary bank, complete the following steps:

  1. Restart the server.
  2. When the prompt Press F3 to restore to primary is displayed, press F3 to start the server from the primary bank.
