16.2.3 Method of Checking the Firmware Version


16.2.3 Method of Checking the Firmware Version
The firmware version on these systems is called "XCP version." The higher the version number, the newer the firmware. Before updating firmware, be sure to check the XCP version of the current system.

In the following example, use the version command with the -c xcp option specified to display the XCP version.
XSCF> version -c xcp
BB#00-XSCF#0 (Master)
XCP0 (Current): 2044
XCP1 (Reserve): 2044
BB#01-XSCF#0 (Standby)
XCP0 (Current): 2044
XCP1 (Reserve): 2044
BB#02-XSCF#0
XCP0 (Current): 2044
XCP1 (Reserve): 2044
You can also check the version of each firmware in XCP by using the version command.
Four digits like "xyyz" represent the XCP version. Each number has the following meaning:
  1. x: Major release number
  2. yy: Minor release number
  3. z: Micro release number
There may be more micro release revisions than document revisions. For this reason, the document may show the micro release number as a variable.
Example: XCP201x
You can confirm the individual versions of the XSCF firmware and CMU firmware in XCP by using the -c xcp -v option with the version command.
The following example displays the XCP firmware version of the SPARC M10-1.
XSCF> version -c xcp -v
BB#00-XSCF#0 (Master)
XCP0 (Current): 2041
CMU           : 02.04.0001
POST          : 1.42.0
OpenBoot PROM : 4.34.0+1.16.0
Hypervisor    : 0.26.9
XSCF          : 02.04.0001
XCP1 (Reserve): 2041
CMU           : 02.04.0001
POST          : 1.42.0
OpenBoot PROM : 4.34.0+1.16.0
Hypervisor    : 0.26.9
XSCF          : 02.04.0001
CMU BACKUP
#0: 02.04.0001
#1: ..
The following example displays the XCP firmware version of the SPARC M12-2. In the SPARC M12-1/M12-2/M12-2S, there is no CMU reserve area.
XSCF> version -c xcp -v
BB#00-XSCF#0 (Master)
XCP0 (Reserve): 3010
XSCF          : 03.01.0000
XCP1 (Current): 3010
XSCF          : 03.01.0000
CMU           : 03.01.0000
    POST          : X.X.X
    OpenBoot PROM : X.XX.X+X.XX.X
    Hypervisor    : X.X.X
CMU BACKUP
#0: 03.01.0000
#1: ..
The CMU firmware may be different from the XCP version.
Example: When the XCP version is 2042, the XSCF firmware version is 02.04.0002 while the CMU firmware version is 02.04.0001.
For the CMU firmware version that corresponds to the XCP version, see "Existing XCP Firmware Versions and Support Information" in the latest Product Notes for your server.
