openbmctool -U <username> -P <password> -H <BMC IP address or BMC host name> firmware flash <bmc or pnor> -f xxx.tarMy problem was it kept failing when copying the .tar file from my machine to the BMC. Fortunately, this alternative method allowed me to update the firmware. I'd scp the files over to the BMC in the /tmp/images directory. The solution would automatically decompress the files and make them available for use.
