Upgrade the Gateway Firmware (Web)

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.

  1. Acquire the firmware package.

    See Acquire the Gateway Firmware Package (CLI).

  2. Open an SSH session and connect to the management controller by specifying the controller’s host name.

    For example:

    % ssh -l root nm2name
    root@nm2name’s password: password

    where nm2name is the host name of the management controller. Initially, the password is changeme.

  3. If the Subnet Manager is running on the management controller, disable it with the disablesm command.
    # disablesm
    Stopping partitiond daemon.                                [  OK  ]
    Stopping IB Subnet Manager..                               [  OK  ]
  4. Verify that there is at least 150 MB available in the /tmp directory.
    # 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.

  5. Verify that there is at least 1 MB available in the /config 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.

  6. Verify that there is at least 1 MB available in the /var/log 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.

  7. Verify that there is at least 150 MB free memory available.
    # 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 nonessential applications that are running.

  8. Access the Oracle ILOM web interface.

    See Access Oracle ILOM From the Web Interface.

  9. Click the Maintenance tab.
  10. Click the Firmware Upgrade subtab.

    The Firmware Upgrade window opens.

  11. Click Enter Upgrade Mode.

    A dialog box opens and asks you to confirm.

  12. Click OK.

    The Firmware Upgrade window changes to Upgrade mode and now accepts a URL and file name of the gateway firmware package.

    Note - For the specified URL, only the FTP or HTTP protocols are supported.

  13. Click Upload.

    Oracle ILOM transfers the gateway firmware package to the management controller. Oracle ILOM verifies the package integrity and displays the current versions of the firmware and versions in the package.

  14. Click Start Upgrade.

    A dialog box opens and asks you to confirm.

  15. Click OK.

    The upgrade begins and the status of the upgrade is reported.

    When the upgrade process ends, a log and summary report are displayed.

  16. Click OK.

    A final status is displayed, the upgrade either:

    • Succeeded

    • Partially succeeded

    • Failed

  17. Reboot the gateway to enable the new firmware.

    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.

  18. If the Subnet Manager was previously disabled, open an SSH session, connect to the management controller, and enable the Subnet Manager.
    % ssh -l root gateway_name
    root@gateway_name’s password: password
    # enablesm
    Starting IB Subnet Manager.                                [  OK  ]
    Starting partitiond daemon.                                [  OK  ]
    # exit
  19. Access the Oracle ILOM web interface.

    See Access Oracle ILOM From the Web Interface.

  20. Verify the success of the firmware update.

    See Display the Firmware Version (Web).

  21. Verify the firmware integrity.

    See Verify Firmware Integrity (CLI).
