Re: EML E-Series robotics controller Updating firmware issue

There are a couple of dependencies.

First try this.

telnet to the library itself and run

/>show firmware rev

(use cliadmin/clipwd to logon)

This will show the running versions.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: EML E-Series robotics controller Updating firmware issue

Since there are a lot of dependencies between the firmware and commandview tl, I prefer to update without CVTL.

However, there are steps needed, if the running versions are too old.

We will check, if these steps are needed for your library.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: EML E-Series robotics controller Updating firmware issue

Interface Manager firmware revision: I274  is current.

Tape Library firmware revision     : 1493 (7.18.00) is current.

Did you remove the drive information?

The first IC needs still an update from 5963 to 5977.

 

This looks good so far. Is the library up and running?

Run

/>show lib status

 

For the update:

locate the file LTT_HP_E2400-4G_5977.frm.

use FTP and put this file onto the library (use "bin" mode).

From the telnet session check with

/>show firmware avail

and start the update

/> download interface 1

This takes some minutes, then check with

/>show firmware rev

 


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: EML E-Series robotics controller Updating firmware issue

Looks like the lib is still initializing? This can take 40 minutes or more (inventory takes that long).

Could you take a picture of the library back side?


Hope this helps!

Torsten.
