16.3 Update Flow
The order of firmware update with the XSCF shell or XSCF Web is 1) XCP import and 2) XCP update.

The basic firmware update procedure is described below.
  1. Execute the version command to check the XCP firmware version.
    The firmware cannot be updated from XCP 3xxx to XCP 4xxx or from XCP 4xxx to XCP 3xxx. Confirm that the firmware corresponds to the XCP version used.
  2. From the site, obtain the XCP firmware program file (tar.gz format) that corresponds to the XCP version used, and place it on your USB device or in a network directory.
  3. Decompress the XCP firmware program file.
  4. Log in to the XSCF with a user account that has the platadm or fieldeng user privilege. If the systems has multiple XSCFs, log in to the master XSCF.
  5. Import the XCP firmware image file (BBXCPxxxx.tar.gz) from your USB device or the network directory to the system (see getflashimage(8)).
    XCP can be imported to the system while Oracle Solaris is active or stopped.
  6. Update XCP or the XSCF firmware (see flashupdate(8)).
  7. Set the XSCF time (see "6.1.2 Setting the XSCF Time Before System Startup.")
  8. For the CMU firmware on the target physical partitions that are powered on, power off and on the physical partitions (see poweroff(8) and poweron(8)).
Note - In the case of a logical domain configuration, execute the ldm add-spconfig command of Oracle VM Server for SPARC in the control domain to save the latest configuration information in the XSCF before powering off the physical partition.
For details, see "6.2.2 Saving the Logical Domain Configuration Information before System Stop" and "10.11.1 Saving/Displaying Logical Domain Configuration Information."
  1. Confirm the firmware version (see version(8)).
For details of these five commands, see the man page of each command or the Fujitsu SPARC M12 and Fujitsu M10/SPARC M10 XSCF Reference Manual. For details on the associated XSCF Web menu, see "Appendix C List of the XSCF Web Pages."
