Apple has released an update for Xserve users.

The Xserve Lights-Out Management Firmware Update 1.0 is a combined security and reliability update which helps improve the monitoring and management features of Xserve.

The update, which is just 760k in size, is available now from the company's Support website. It is "strongly recommended for all Intel-based Xserve systems", Apple says.

The update will be installed into the /Applications/Server folder of the selected volume. You must then run the firmware update application to perform the update to the Xserve. Users can run the update as an application in the Finder of the target Xserve or remotely from the command line.
