Update the PDU Metering Unit Firmware (SSH)

  1. Using a web browser, connect to the MOS web site:


  2. Locate and download the latest version of the firmware.

    To locate the latest PDU firmware, search the Download Center for the Sun Rack II. Follow the instructions on the web site to download the firmware.

  3. Save the downloaded firmware ZIP file to a directory accessible to the PDU over the network.
  4. Use the unzip command to extract the metering unit firmware from the downloaded ZIP file.

    The downloaded ZIP file contains one update file:

    • MKAPP_Vx.x.dl – metering unit firmware

    If the ZIP file also contains a text file, review it for any additional information about the firmware updates.

  5. Using an appropriate SSH application, execute the following command.
    scp MKAPP_Vx.x.dl admin@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:Firmware.dl
    xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx = PDU ipaddr
  6. When prompted, enter the admin password.

    See Login Information.

  7. When finished, the PDU will reboot and disconnect from the SSH application.
  8. Confirm that you updated the firmware successfully.
