1/8 tape library firmware update

Having difficulties downloading firmware from HP. I do not find it on their ftp server 192.6.165.75. But I found it on their resource center. Only thing is everytime I click download it just brings up the script and I'm not sure what to do with that. If I try to copy-paste it locks up. If I save it and cope it to my server it has extra characters in the script and fails #sh.

What kind of "extra" characters are in the script? If it's an ^M at the end of each line (as seen from vi), just remove the ^M's.

In vi, use this command:

:g/^V^M/s///g

where you hold down the CTRL key and press V for ^V, and CTRL-M for ^M.

Then save the file, and try it again.

Cheers,

Vince

Re: 1/8 tape library firmware update

Hello Vincent,
Correct, I see exaclty what you said, the ^M after each and every line.
I tried what you asked, but it didn't provide the correct results. In fact I didn't see any change. I'm very basic at vi so it's probably user error.
Correct me if I'm wrong

:g/^V^M/s///g

(key strokes)
shift:
g/
ctrl V for "^"
ctrl V for "V"
ctrl V for "^"
ctrl M for "M"
/s///g

Thanks -D
