If a device requires an automated power cycle as specified in the firmware metadata, it is only supported on Linux operating systems for FWupdate. Automated power cycling is not currently supported for Windows and Solaris operating systems.
Linux power cycle support includes a power cycle duration of 10, 60 and 180 seconds. If a longer duration is needed, FWupdate will require the user to do a manual power cycle. The message for a manual power cycle is as follows:
Automatic system power action failed.Terminating fwupdate. Please reset system manually and then proceed. ERROR: Invalid option
