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.

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 file system management in 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 file system management in Fundamentals Configuration Guide.

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.

Examples

# Specify flash:/all.ipe as the main startup image file.

<Sysname> boot-loader file flash:/all.ipe main

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.

all: Loads the entire BootWare image, including the basic segment and the extended segment. If you do not specify the all or part keyword, this command restores the entire BootWare image.

part: Loads the extended BootWare image section.

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

   This command will update the Boot ROM file, Continue? [Y/N]:y

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