MP firmware update

Hi,
I have an RX2600 with the MP firmware at 2.10.
I have downloaded the 2.26 update and placed in on another RX2600 on the network.
When I attempt to update the firmware I receive a message: "Could not find upgrade file set on source system"
I can ping the source machine from the MP, I can ftp to the source machine using the same user/password that I enter on the MP to upgrade. The source files are in the ftp users home directory and I can see in syslog that the ftp session is initiated and then closed..with no errors being reported.
What have I missed?
Bill

Re: MP firmware update

Hi Bill,

You can also install the firmware by installing a patch.

11.23 PHSS_30680

11.22 PHSS_30679

Re: MP firmware update

Hi Robert,
Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately that's the patch that started me on my current path. It would not install until I updated the firmware to rev 2.26. That appears to be a FTP only type of update and that's where I cuurently am, trying to get to 2.26 in order to get to 2.31.

Re: MP firmware update

Hi Bill,

Ok,

Could you check the files on the other rx2600.

# cksum

2954920096
2555744 E0226.bin
3915905951
858962 Resources.out
2724103309
201 gsp_upia.cnf
2724103309
201 mp_upg.cnf
397171541 16 version.dat

Check the PATH (homedir) of the ftp user, you should not cd to an other directory.

Re: MP firmware update

Hi Robert,
I have grabbed all of that "low-hanging" fruit first thing. Checksums are fine and the files are in the ftp users home directory.
I couldn't find any info on permission/ownership so I have them set to owner/users and 755.
At least if syslog gave me some kind of error I could look for something!
Thanks.

Re: MP firmware update

How did you specify your file path? Here is one instance I had used before.

File Path:

Enter new value, or Q to Quit: /tmp/mitsuo/
/tmp/mitsuo/

Note: If you copied all files under the directly /tmp, the file path would be "/tmp" or "/tmp/". Try both.

Re: MP firmware update

Hi Mitsuo,
That did it!
The instructions that came with the patch showed the patch appended to the path name, i.e. /pub/E0223. Once I removed the patch from the path, i.e. /home/bill, it worked just like it was supposed to.
I guess you shouldn't always 'RTFM'
Thanks!!!!

Re: MP firmware update

Hi Bill,

Firmware release note says as below.

Select the MP command XU. This command activates the upgrade mode. Update the MP firmware to the firmware image in the E0223
************
directory.
**********

MP:CM> xu -i 15.255.xxx.xxx -p /pub/E0223 -l anonymous
=======================

I assume it may be better this release note will have the output copy of the command "ls /pub/E0223" to prevent indentical problem. I will send a feedback message to the web master behalf of you.

Re: MP firmware update

Hi Mitsuo,
Yes, that is the line that got me in trouble. It would appear that placing the package name in the path is incorrect.
Thanks again.
