6.5 Checking the Altitude Setting

6.5 Checking the Altitude Setting
This section describes the procedure for checking and setting the altitude of the installation location.
The setting in the factory default settings is 0 m. Check the setting value, and change it as needed.
Note - Setting the altitude in the system makes it possible to detect abnormal intake temperatures early. If the altitude of the installation location is unknown, set a high altitude. Abnormal temperatures can be detected from abnormal CPU temperatures, for example, even if no altitude is set in the system. This prevents critical damage to the system.
  1. Execute the showaltitude command.
    The following example displays the system altitude. The factory default setting is 0 m.
XSCF> showaltitude
  1. If the altitude setting is correct, skip step 2 and subsequent steps. To change the altitude, execute the setaltitude command.
    The setting is in units of 100 m, and values less than 100 m are rounded up.
    The following example sets the altitude to 100 m.
XSCF> setaltitude -s altitude=100
  1. Execute the rebootxscf command to reflect the setting. If you are also changing the setting values described in "6.6  Checking the Time Setting," you can skip step 3 and subsequent steps because the XSCF is reset in that procedure too.
    Executing the rebootxscf command disconnects the XSCF session.
    The following example resets all the XSCFs and automatically selects "y" for the confirmation message.
XSCF> rebootxscf -y -a
The XSCF will be reset. Continue? [y|n] :y
Note - If -a is specified, the command reboots the XSCF of every SPARC M10-4S and crossbar box. If you want to reset a specific SPARC M10-4S, specify -b bb_id.
  1. Log in to the XSCF again.
