If possible to Install drivers and firmware in maintenance mode?

Hi,

I have to install the driver and firmware of one tarjet A6826A. It's an fibre pci-x target.

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=331475&prodTypeId=329290&prodSeriesId=331473&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=7

I have to do it in mantenance mode because I have fibre's disk in the vg00. Can I install the driver and the firmware in maintenance mode?
When I have to put the files ... in the /tmp is it posible?

Thanks a lot of!
Carmen.

consider to boot up to init 2, because you need network access.

Hope this helps!

Re: If possible to Install drivers and firmware in maintenance mode?

The driver will be installed via swinstall, this is a client server process and needs network. The new driver will be active after a reboot. Regarding firmware: is this a RISC or Itanium server?
However, the firmware update will reset the device for a moment, this will be accepted by the OS.

Hope this helps!

Hi ,

SD-UX will not work with out netowrk...
and you can install the driver in runlevel 3.

Note :Please take an ignite backup.
Please read through the installation procedure , dependencies and instructions.

runlevel 2 is enough, applications should be stopped.

Installation of drives for fc you can do it in run level 3 also after installing driver you need to restart then driver will be configured properly.

Firmware can be updated in isl prompt when you need to show firmware path by cdrom.
