I presume you mean "firmware upgrade"? And it means what it sounds like it means...you upgrade the firmware

You reboot the server and pay attention to what it says on the BIOS screen, or any screen that may have firmware (i.e. drive controllers, etc.). The version will be on it.

Whenever you want to...aren't YOU the administrator? I wouldn't do any upgrades on production servers unless it fixed a specific problem, or patched a vulnerability. But that's just what I would do on MY servers.

Same as with ANY upgrade..things could not work, work differently, or work better. That's why administrators need to do a good amount of research.
