fwupdate Command Syntax

The fwupdate command uses the following syntax:

fwupdate subcommand target options

If you use the –-help or –-version options, the fwupdate command does not require subcommands; otherwise a subcommand is mandatory.

When a command fails, it returns one of the failure codes listed in fwupdate Error Codes.

fwupdate supports the subcommands listed in the following table.

Provides firmware information about a device or a file. For targets and options specific to the list subcommand, see Listing Component Firmware Information.
Updates the firmware of one or more system components based on command-line directives. Devices can be updated automatically using metadata information contained in an XML file included with the device patch (recommended), or updated manually using a firmware image file. For targets and options specific to the update subcommand, see Updating Component Firmware.
Resets the specified device if the device supports a reset. Perform a reset on a device after a firmware update (if required). In some cases where the metadata used in an automatic mode firmware update does not automatically reset a device that requires one, this subcommand can be used. For targets and options specific to the reset subcommand, see Reset a Device After a Firmware Update.

The options listed in the following table apply to all Oracle Hardware Management Pack CLI Tools commands, including fwupdate.
