Critical Alert on Proxy ASG in Memory Termination Voltage. 


The reported issue usually caused by outdated BMC firmware on the appliance.


To resolve this challenge, the BMC firmware for the appliance will have to be upgraded to the latest, supported version. For all the guidance, to check, identify, and to fix the issue, reference has been made to the Tech. Article with the URL below.

Additional Information


The impact of keeping an out-of-date BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) firmware on a ProxySG device can be significant and potentially problematic. The BMC firmware is responsible for managing and monitoring various hardware components and functionalities of the server, including power management, system health, and remote management capabilities. Here are some potential impacts of not keeping the BMC firmware up to date on a ProxySG or any other server:

Security Vulnerabilities: Out-of-date BMC firmware may contain known security vulnerabilities that can be exploited by malicious actors. Keeping the BMC firmware up to date is crucial for maintaining the security of the server, as vulnerabilities can lead to unauthorized access or control of the server.

Reduced Performance: Updated BMC firmware often includes optimizations and bug fixes that can improve the overall performance and reliability of the server. By not updating the firmware, you may experience reduced system performance and stability.

Compatibility Issues: An out-of-date BMC firmware may not be compatible with newer hardware components, operating systems, or management software. This can result in incompatibility issues, making it difficult to manage and maintain the server effectively.

Lack of Features: BMC firmware updates may introduce new features, such as enhanced remote management capabilities, improved monitoring, and more. Not updating the firmware means missing out on these features that can simplify server administration.

Remote Management Problems: An outdated BMC firmware can lead to issues with remote management tools, making it harder to diagnose and resolve server problems remotely. This can lead to increased downtime and operational challenges.

Hardware Monitoring: Keeping the BMC firmware up to date is essential for accurate hardware monitoring. An outdated firmware may not provide accurate information about the server's health and status, making it difficult to detect and address hardware issues promptly.

Compliance Requirements: In some industries and organizations, compliance regulations may require that firmware, including BMC firmware, is kept up to date to ensure security and system integrity. Failing to update may result in compliance violations.
