The load command updates the service processor flash image and the host firmware. The load command requires the following information:
The command usage is as follows:
load [-script] -source tftp://xxx.xxx.xx.xx/pathname
-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://xxx.xxx.xx.xx/pathname 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 system automatically resets.
The service processor resets, runs diagnostics, and returns to the login prompt (on the serial console), similar to this code example:
