IBM Remote Supervisor Engine II firmware

I have seen this several times. You buy a new IBM server (perhaps a xSeries 3650) and connect to the Remote Supervisor Adapter. After logging in you get the error:
The firmware on this ASM does not include functionality to support this server. You can update its firmware on the next page. Click “OK” to continue.
See the screen shot below for an example:

How hard can it be to ship a server with a working RSA adapter? I mean all they have to do is make sure it has the appropriate firmware.

It’s just not good enough!
