Apple has introduced an update for its Xserve product, the Xserve Lights-Out Management Firmware Update 1.1.

The update includes changes to the Lights-Out Management environment of the Intel-based Xserve, Apple explains. "It addresses the intermittent issue that causes the LOM port to be unresponsive," Apple adds.

The Xserve Lights-Out Management Firmware Update 1.1 application has been 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.

Apple recommends all Intel-based Xserve systems be patched-up with the update, which is available here.
