Upgrade the NEM Firmware


Note - You must be logged in as root to perform the upgrade.

Note - Before upgrading the NEM firmware, back up the current configuration as described in Back Up the Current Configuration Before Upgrading.
  1. Ensure that you have a network configuration in place on the NEM.

    For more information, refer to the Sun Blade 6000 Ethernet Switched NEM 24p 10GbE User's Guide.

  2. (Optional) If you have not restarted the NEM as part of backing up the configuration, restart the NEM now.

    Note - The NEM might currently be low on memory. The restart frees up memory for a more reliable upgrade.
