Installation Instructions:
PLEASE BACK UP YOUR SYSTEM BEFORE YOU INSTALL THE PATCH.


NOTE: It is important that you read and understand
these instructions completely before you begin.
This can determine your success in completing the
Firmware update.

Be sure to prepare the system and its users before
beginning a Firmware update. Since the system will
not be in operation during the update, you should
notify appropriate managers and users as to when it
will be shutdown and for how long it will remain
inoperative.

* * * * * * UNPACKING THE FIRMWARE on HPUX* * * * * * * * * *

1. FTP "PF_COLYEIG0330.tar.gz" to an empty directory.

2. Use the "gunzip" to unzip the patch.

# gunzip PF_COLYEIG0330.tar.gz

3. Use the "tar" command to extract the firmware files

# tar -xvf PF_COLYEIG0330.tar
x eventDic_1.9.bin, 458772 bytes, 897 tape blocks
x mp_A.6.12.0.bin, 8388628 bytes, 16385 tape blocks
x pdhc_1.7.0.osp, 3190017 bytes, 6231 tape blocks
x pdhc_A.3.23.0.bin, 371032 bytes, 725 tape blocks
x rx8620_rx7620_SEU_V3_3_ReleaseNotes.pdf, 348550 bytes, 681 tape blocks
x sfw.1.25.0.bin, 12582932 bytes, 24577 tape blocks

4. Verify the checksum of the files using the "cksum" command.
Results of the command should be equal to:

# cksum *
214388078 25354240 PF_COLYEIG0330.tar
2161842178 458772 eventDic_1.9.bin

* * * * * * UNPACKING THE FIRMWARE on Microsoft Windows* * * * * *


Note: The Microsoft Windows environment which the file is
going to be downloaded to must have WinZip installed
to un-package the "PF_COLYEIG0330.tar.gz" file.

1. FTP "PF_COLYEIG0330.tar.gz" to an empty folder.

2. Open a Windows Explorer window, select the drive and folder
that "PF_COLYEIG0330.tar.gz" was downloaded to.

3. Double click on the "PF_COLYEIG0330.tar.gz" file to start
the WinZip program and the un-packaging process.

4. The WinZip program will ask if the file should be decompressed
into a empty folder and opened. Click on the "Yes" button.

5. The WinZip program will start and display all of the files within
the "PF_COLYEIG0330.tar.gz" file. Click on the "Extract" button.

6. WinZip will ask for the folder that the files should be extracted
to. Using the Folders/Drives portion of the window select the
desired location to extract the files to and the click on the
"Extract" button.

7. Using the Windows Explorer window, select the drive and folder
that "PF_COLYEIG0330.tar.gz" was downloaded to.

8. Individually "Right Click" on each of the files located in this
folder and select "Properties". Verify that each file has the
following properties:

Re: rp7420 firmware update

Hi Robert-Jan,

Thanks for your prompt response. I am a little confused on upgrading version 3.1 to 3.3. Is it the same procedure as going from 3.2 to 3.3?

CAUTION: When updating from a version prior to 3.2, read the version
3.2 release notes carefully. Failure to update FPGAs with
48V power on, followed by updating System Firmware files with
48V power off may place your system in an unrecoverable state!


I can understand this 48V power on/off? What is this for? Please explain details.

Best regards,
Mostafa

Re: rp7420 firmware update

BTW, for these systems (if you have a HP support contract) it is advisable to ask an engineer to upgrade your server
