Software upgrade commands

As a best practice, store the startup images in a fixed storage medium. If you store the startup images in a hot swappable storage medium, do not remove the hot swappable storage medium during the startup process.

boot-loader file

Use boot-loader file to specify startup image files.

Syntax

boot-loader file boot filename system filename [ feature filename&<1-30> ] [ patch filename&<1-16> ] { all | slot slot-number } { backup | main }

boot-loader file ipe-filename [ patch filename&<1-16> ] { all | slot slot-number } { backup | main }

Parameters

boot: Specifies a boot image file.

system: Specifies a system image file.

feature: Specifies a space-separated list of up to 30 feature image files.

patch: Specifies a space-separated list of up to 16 patch image files. You can specify only non-incremental patch image files.

filename: Specifies a .bin file in the filesystemname/filename.bin format. The file must be stored in the root directory of a file system on the device. Excluding the file system location section (if any), the value string can have a maximum of 63 characters. For more information about specifying a file, see Fundamentals Configuration Guide.

ipe-filename: Specifies an .ipe image package file in the filesystemname/filename.ipe format. The file must be stored in the root directory of a file system on the device. Excluding the file system location section (if any), the value string can have a maximum of 63 characters. For more information about specifying a file, see Fundamentals Configuration Guide.

all: Specifies all hardware components to which the specified images apply.

slot slot-number: Specifies the IRF member ID of a member device.

backup: Specifies the files as backup startup image files. Backup images are used only when main images are not available.

main: Specifies the files as main startup image files. The device always first attempts to start up with main startup files.

Usage guidelines

The boot-loader file command overwrites the entire startup image list. To add new startup feature images, specify all feature image files in the old startup image list, including feature image files. The new startup image list will contain only the feature image files that are specified in the command.

To load the specified startup software images, you must reboot the system.

If the upgrade images are not found in the file system on the slot specified to upgrade, the system automatically copies the images to that file system. The destination directory is the root directory of the file system. If the destination root directory already contains a startup image with the same name as an upgrade image, you must choose whether to overwrite the image.

boot-loader update

Use boot-loader update to synchronize startup images.

Syntax

boot-loader update { all | slot slot-number }

Parameters

all: Synchronizes startup images from the master to all subordinate devices.

slot slot-number: Specifies the IRF member ID of a subordinate device.

Usage guidelines

You can use this command to synchronize startup images after adding new member devices.

The startup images synchronized to the subordinate device are set as main startup images, regardless of whether the source startup images are main or backup.

·     If the master device has started up with main startup images, its main startup images are synchronized to the subordinate device, regardless of whether any main startup image has been respecified on the master device.

·     If the master device has started up with backup startup images, its backup startup images are synchronized to the subordinate device, regardless of whether any backup startup image has been respecified on the master device.

If a patch installation or ISSU has been performed on the master, use the install commit command to update the set of main startup images on the master before software synchronization. This command ensures startup image consistency between the master and the subordinate device.

Startup image synchronization fails if any software image being synchronized is not available or is corrupted.

Examples

# Synchronize startup images to a slot.

<Sysname> boot-loader update slot 2

This command will update the specified standby MPU. Continue? [Y/N]:y

bootrom update

Use bootrom update to load the BootWare image from a file system to the Normal BootWare area.

Syntax

bootrom update file file slot slot-number-list [ subslot subslot-number-list ]

Predefined user roles

network-admin

Parameters

file file: Specifies the file that contains the BootWare image. The file argument represents the file name, a string of 1 to 63 characters.

slot slot-number-list: Specifies a space-separated list of up to seven slot number items. An item specifies an IRF member device by its member ID or a range of IRF member devices in the form of start-slot-number to end-slot-number. The end slot number must be equal to or greater than the start slot number.

subslot subslot-number-list: Specifies a list of up to seven subslot number items. Each item specifies a subcard by its subslot number or a range of subcards in the form of start-subslot-number to end-subslot-number. If you do not specify a subcard, this command loads the BootWare image for the base card.

 

NOTE:

The subslot subslot-number-list option takes effect only if the switch is installed with an LSPM6FWD subcard.

Usage guidelines

BootWare images are contained in the .bin Comware boot image file. You can specify a Comware boot image file in this command to upgrade the BootWares in the system before you upgrade the Comware images. If you do not upgrade BootWares before upgrading Comware images, the system automatically upgrades BootWares as necessary when loading Comware images.

The new BootWare images take effect after you reboot the device.

Examples

# Use the file a.bin in the root directory of the flash memory to upgrade the BootWare image.

<Sysname> bootrom update file flash:/a.bin slot 1

   This command will update the Boot ROM file on the specified board(s), Continue? [Y/N]:y

   Now updating the Boot ROM, please wait................Done.
