I'm setting up a HP Microserver Gen 8 as a backup NAS. Server hasn't been used in a while so I upgraded it to to iLO Firmware Version 2.78, I noticed this error:

 

Controller firmware revision 2.10.00 NAND read failure: Media is in a WRITE-PROTECTED state

 

After some research I found this:

 

https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=a00048622en_us

 

Basically, it says to format the NAND.

 

I tried to do it within ILO (Option 1) but I don't have the format option as in the screenshot.

 

So I tried option 3- From Windows OS (using the HPQLOCFG.exe utility but I got the following error

CPQLOCFG.exe: ERROR: Malformed RIB response: (30):

HTTP/1.1 501 Not Implemented

CPQLOCFG.exe: Script succeeded on "192.168.200.21:443"

 

Also tried a reset within ILO. Has anyone reformatted it successfully? What issues am I likely to run into? I intend to use my SD slot to boot ESXi

UPDATE: found the format option, I had to press iLO Health twice.
 
Unfortunately, formatting the NAND and resetting 4 times with unplugging for a minutes in between didn't work for me.
 
I also tried upgrading/downgrading ILO firmware versions and that didn't work.

It seems a lot of people are getting this error recently, is there a reason why?
