Firmware revision

Hi Gurus,

I have this doubts.

I need to do one upgrade, for this i need the the firmware update.

In the cookbook the minimum firmware is indicated as:

FW Version 6.5

But when i check the firmware version with the following command i get:

echo "selclass type proc;info;wait;infolog" | cstm | grep 'PDC Firmware'

PDC Firmware Revision: 17.9

What is the diference between "PDC Firmware Revision" and "FW Version" ?

How can I get the "FW Version" ?

Best regards

Re: Firmware revision

What are we talking about?

You need to specify the server you have

# model

and the current firmware version:

MP:CM> sysrev

Please post both.



I think in your case VW version means the bundle - PDC is part of the bundle.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: Firmware revision

You must have a rp8400 or rp7410, right?

This is the 6.5 bundle:

Re: Firmware revision

This server model can't tell you the bundle version.

You have revision 6.2.


Hope this helps!
