ie the format of the answer should
be for example c:\dist\ver5.1

Re: cell board upgrade

Hi Roger,

it's not clear.

The is no rx6620 server, but a rx6600.

Tell again what you have.

This server has no cells.

Most firmware of this server is provided by hp-ux patch, EFI executable or ISO image, but not FTP based.

Please run from MP:

MP:CM> sysrev

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: cell board upgrade

Just in case it is a rx7620 or something similar - make sure to read and understand the release notes!

If you have doubts, ask here or better call HP support.

Doing something wrong might kill your server!

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: cell board upgrade

I'm sure the notes will answer most questions. Set up your FTP server for anonymous access and test if you can reach it.
User is anonymous, password is default, patch is absolute (from FTP server point of view).

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: cell board upgrade

Hi

On another server UNIX server that can be used download and extract the firmware for this 7620 server.
Then From the MP of the server 7620 make sure that the other server is reachable.

You can use PING from the MP>CM>XD command to check if the other server is reachable from this 7620.
If yes then from the MP of 7620 run the FW command and give the location(path) wherein the Firmware has been unzipped and the username and password for a user on the other UNIX server.
