|Sun Network QDR InfiniBand Gateway Switch HTML Document Collection for Firmware Version 2.0|
Note - If you are going to downgrade the firmware to a version earlier than 2.0, you must remove user partitions and depopulate the Subnet Manager nodes list. See Gateway Administration, removing partitions for firmware downgrade.

# df -h /tmp Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on tmpfs 250M 240K 249M 1% /tmp #
In this example, there are 249 MB available. If not enough space is available, you must delete files from the /tmp directory.
# df -h /config Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/hda2 16M 3.6M 11M 25% /config #
In this example, there are 11 MB available. If not enough space is available, you must delete files from the /config directory.
# df -h /var/log Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/hda3 16M 3.6M 11M 25% /var/log #
In this example, there are 11 MB available. If not enough space is available, you must delete files from the /var/log directory.
# free -m total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 498 104 393 0 12 47 -/+ buffers/cache: 45 453 Swap: 0 0 0 #
In the -/+ buffers/cache: row of the free column, there should be at least 150 MB free memory. In this example, there are 453 MB available. If not enough memory is available, you must exit non-essential applications that are running.

You are now in the Oracle ILOM shell.
You can use the exit command to return to the Linux shell.
-> load -source URI/pkgname
URI is the uniform resource indicator for the host where the gateway firmware package is located. The FTP and HTTP protocols are supported.
pkgname is the name of the firmware package in the transfer directory.
For example, using the FTP protocol:
-> load -source ftp://root:firstname.lastname@example.org//tmp/sundcs_gw_repository_2.0.5_1.pkg Downloading firmware image. This will take a few minutes.
Note - If you are upgrading from firmware version 2.0.X, you can use the -force option to disable version number checking, and force the upgrade.
The firmware is downloaded. The upgrade begins. A caution is displayed and you are asked to commit to the upgrade.
NOTE: Firmware upgrade will upgrade firmware on SUN DCS gw Kontron module, I4 and BridgeX. Upgrade takes few minutes to complete. ILOM will enter a special mode to load new firmware. No other tasks should be performed in ILOM until the firmware upgrade is complete. Are you sure you want to load the specified file (y/n)?
The upgrade begins.
Setting up environment for firmware upgrade. This will take few minutes.

The download of the Kontron firmware image happens during reboot. After system reboot, Kontron FW update progress can be monitored in browser using URL [http://GWsystem] OR at OS command line prompt by using command [telnet GWsystem 1234] where GWsystem is the hostname or IP address of SUN DCS GW. Firmware update is complete. ->
-> exit exit #
See Gateway Administration, restarting the entire gateway.
Note - The restart process takes between 4 to 5 minutes to complete.
You can monitor the update progress through:
web browser – http://gateway_name
CLI – telnet gateway_name 1234
where gateway_name is the host name or IP address of the management controller.
Note - The Oracle ILOM stack requires at least 2 minutes to become operational after a reboot.
The next time you login to the gateway, this message is displayed:
FW upgrade completed successfully on Mon Oct 17 18:36:14 IST 2011. Please run the "fwverify" CLI command to verify the new image. This message will be cleared on next reboot.
