missing bnx-mips-09-5.0.0.j3.fw

On a new Debian 7 install we need to remotely install the O/S via the DRAC card using the virtual media mechanism. To get the BNX firmware (which is non-free) you need to create an IMG file so that you can pass it as a virtual floppy disk to the DRAC card. Here is a useful download containing:

  • firmware-bnx2_0.36+wheezy.1_all.deb
  • firmware-bnx2x_0.36+wheezy.1_all.deb
You can download the IMG file here.
