How to Update the Fallback Image

This procedure applies to those systems that have service processors (SPs) with the fallback miniroot installed. Whenever you update to an SRU version on the host, you must also update the fallback image.

Note -  The fallback image's README file also provides the same instructions for updating the fallback image. Make sure to refer to that document for additional information related to the image.

Before You Begin

Ensure that your role has the appropriate rights profiles to perform this procedure. See Using Rights Profiles to Administer Boot Features.

  1. Access your MOS account at https://support.oracle.com.

    On the support web page, search for Doc ID 2045311.1 (Oracle Solaris 11.3 Support Repository Updates (SRU) Index ). This index lists the different SRU versions with links to their corresponding fallback boot images.

  2. Download the SRU version's fallback image.
  3. At the ILOM prompt, check the version of the current image to verify that you do not have the latest version installed already.
    -> show /SP/firmware/host/miniroot version
            version = fallback-5.11-
  4. At the ILOM prompt, update the fallback image.
    -> load -source  http://webserver.example.com/fallback/fallback.pkg
