Sun N1 System Manager 1.2 Introduction

Install Firmware Updates on Servers

Updating the firmware on the provisionable servers is a primary administrative task. Installing a firmware update on a provisionable server for the first time is a two-step process:

  1. Copy the firmware update into the N1 System Manager. The N1 System Manager must have system access to the firmware update before the update can be installed on the provisionable servers.

    The create firmware command enables you to copy a firmware update from a web site or an accessible file system on the management server. Once a firmware update is copied to the management server, you can display it in the browser interface under Shortcuts, or you can use the show firmware command.

  2. Install the firmware update on the appropriate provisionable servers by using the browser interface or the load server or load group commands.

See Managing Firmware SP, BIOS, and ALOM Updates in Sun N1 System Manager 1.2 Administration Guide for details.
