rx4640 firmware upgrade에 관한 질문입니다


itanium 서버의 firmware을 올리는 방법은 3가지 정도 있습니다.

1. EFI image 사용

2. ISO image 사용

3. Depot 파일 사용

이중 3번의 Depot 파일 사용은 일반 패치하는것처럼 하는 가장 쉬운 방법입니다.(사전에 최신의 Online Diagnostic 설치권고)

1번 EFI image 사용은 수동으로 비교적 많은 명령어을 입력해야 하나 HP-UX가 아닌 다른 OS에서도 사용이 가능합니다.

Installation Instructions:

HP-UX - Loading Firmware files onto EFI partition

1. You may need superuser privileges. Download "PF_CDIABSYS0317AEFI.tar.gz" and then FTP to an empty directory on the server requiring the firmware update.

2. Use 'gunzip' to unzip the file:

#gunzip PF_CDIABSYS0317AEFI.tar.gz

3. Use the 'tar' command to extract the firmware files - "sysupdate.efi", "update_SFW.efi", "lsiscsi.rom", and "efi8xxfl.efi":

#tar -xvf PF_CDIABSYS0317AEFI.tar

4. Determine the character-special device file for the EFI partition on your disk. Type: "ioscan -fknC disk". The file will be /dev/rdsk/*s1. (i.e. /dev/rdsk/c2t1d0s1) If there are more than one such file, check "bdf" output to identify the name of the disk associated with the root "/" directory.

For more information, type "man vgdisplay" and "man 4 efi".


Filesystem kbytes used avail %used Mounted on

/dev/vg00/lvol3 409600 191592 216336 47% /

/dev/vg00/lvol1 311296 69296 240160 22% /stand

/dev/vg00/lvol8 2613248 1087200 1515664 42% /var

/dev/vg00/lvol7 4390912 2515064 1861224 57% /usr

/dev/vg00/lvol4 204800 8544 194728 4% /tmp

/dev/vg00/lvol6 3465216 1982064 1471600 57% /opt

/dev/vg00/lvol5 24576 8432 16032 34% /home

In the above output, the disk would be lvol3. Do a lvdisplay command:

#lvdisplay -v /dev/vg00/lvol3 |more

--- Distribution of logical volume ---

PV Name LE on PV PE on PV

/dev/dsk/c2t1d0s2 50 50

Note the device file of the disk. In this example it would be c2t1d0.

5. Type the following command to copy the "sysupdate.efi" firmware file to the EFI partition using the character-special device file determined in step 4 in place of 'c2t1d0':

"/usr/sbin/efi_cp -d/dev/rdsk/c(whatever)s1 sysupdate.efi /efi/hp/firmware/sysupdate.efi"

6. Type the following command to copy the "update_SFW.efi" file to EFI:

"/usr/sbin/efi_cp -d/dev/rdsk/c(whatever)s1 update_SFW.efi /efi/hp/firmware/update_SFW.efi"

7. Type the following command to copy the "lsiscsi.rom" file to EFI:

"/usr/sbin/efi_cp -d/dev/rdsk/c(whatever)s1 lsiscsi.rom /efi/hp/firmware/lsiscsi.rom"

8. Type the following command to copy the "efi8xxfl.efi" file to EFI:

"/usr/sbin/efi_cp -d/dev/rdsk/c(whatever)s1 efi8xxfl.efi /efi/hp/firmware/efi8xxfl.efi"

9. Verify the file was successfully copied to the EFI partition using the following command:

"/usr/sbin/efi_ls -d /dev/rdsk/c2t1d0s1 /efi/hp/firmware"

10. Type: "/usr/sbin/shutdown -ry now" to reboot the system to "EFI Boot Manager".

11. When the "EFI Boot Manager" menu appears, use the arrow keys to highlight the entry "EFI Shell ", then press ENTER to select it. The selection must be made within the timeout period displayed on the screen.

12. The "Device mapping table" will be displayed.

13. Proceed to "OS Independent - Updating Firmware from EFI Shell", shown below.

Installation Instructions:

Installing Firmware from CDROM.

1. Download PF_CDIABSYS0317A.zip to a PC with a CDROM burner and software installed.

2. Unzip PF_CDIABSYS0317A.zip.

3. Double Click the icon for PF_CDIABSYS0317A.iso or Right Click the icon for PF_CDIABSYS0317A.iso and select 'Record to CD' from the pop-up menu. Consult the operating instructions for your CD Burner software to complete the recording process. Many software packages only require clicking the 'okay' or similar button.

4. Remove the CD from the burner and install in the system to be updated.

5. Boot the system using the CDROM as the boot media.

NOTE: Do not boot to the EFI Shell prior to booting to the CDROM. Doing so may cause the U160 SCSI EFI Boot Services Driver update to fail to update during execution. If this is the case, a reset of the server is required prior to booting the CDROM.

6. If an "Internal Bootable DVD has been added" message appears, your system did not already have a removable media boot option required by HPOFM (HP Offline Firmware Manager); read the message, then press Enter to close it.

7. Press Enter to close the HPOFM welcome message.

8. Use the arrow keys to select the 'Manage Firmware' option, then press Enter. The Manage Firmware screen appears.

11. Read any warning message(s), and press Enter to close them.

12. Press Tab to move the cursor to the 'Begin update' option at the bottom of the screen, then press Enter.

13. Read any reboot warning, then press Tab to move the cursor to the 'Continue' choice, then press Enter.

14. The firmware update will now begin. When the firmware update is complete, the system may reset. Be sure to leave the same CDROM in the drive.

15. HPOFM will run again.

16. When all updates have completed, HPOFM will display a results screen. Read the results, then press Enter to close the screen.

17. When the HPOFM welcome message again appears, press Enter to close it.
