Update the Firmware

  1. Ensure that the Oracle ILOM SP network management port is configured.

    See the installation guide for your server for instructions.

  2. Open an SSH session to connect to the SP:
    % ssh
    Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no) ? yes
    Password: password (nothing displayed)
    Waiting for daemons to initialize...
    Daemons ready
    Integrated Lights Out Manager
    Version 3.x.x.x
    Copyright 2010 Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
    Use is subject to license terms.
  3. Power off the host:
    -> stop /SYS
  4. Set the keyswitch_state parameter to normal:
    -> set /SYS keyswitch_state=normal
  5. Type the load command with the path to the new flash image.

    The load command updates the SP flash image and the host firmware. The load command requires the following information:

    • IP address of a TFTP server on the network that can access the flash image.

    • Full path name to the flash image that the IP address can access.

      The command usage is as follows:

      load [-script] -source t


      • -script - Does not prompt for confirmation and acts as if yes was specified.

      • -source - Specifies the IP address and full path name (URL) to the flash image.

    -> load -source tftp://
    NOTE: A firmware upgrade will cause the server and ILOM to be reset.
    It is recommended that a clean shutdown of the server be done prior 
    to the upgrade procedure.
    An upgrade takes about 6 minutes to complete. ILOM will enter a 
    special mode to load new firmware.
    No other tasks can be performed in ILOM until the firmware upgrade
    is complete and ILOM is reset.
    Are you sure you want to load the specified file (y/n)?y
    Do you want to preserve the configuration (y/n)? y
    Firmware update is complete.
    ILOM will now be restarted with the new firmware.
    Update Complete. Reset device to use new image.

    After the flash image has been updated, the server automatically resets, runs diagnostics, and returns to the login prompt on the serial console.
