4.1.2 Confirming the software and firmware configurations


4.1.2 Confirming the software and firmware configurations
The software and firmware configurations and versions affect system operation. To change the configuration or investigate a problem, check the latest state and check for any problems in the software.
Confirming the software configuration
Use Oracle Solaris commands to check the software configuration.
If you are logged in to the XSCF console, switch to the control domain console by executing the console command beforehand.
Table 4-1 lists the commands used for checking the software configuration.
Table 4-1  Commands for checking the software configuration
Command Description
pkg (Oracle Solaris 11)
showrev (Oracle Solaris 10)
Displays the Oracle Solaris patch information and version.
ldm Displays logical domain configuration information.
  1. Log in to the control domain console of the physical partition where the FRU requiring maintenance is mounted.
    For details on how to log in to the control domain console, see "8.3  Switching to the Control Domain Console From the XSCF Shell" in the Fujitsu SPARC M12 and Fujitsu M10/SPARC M10 System Operation and Administration Guide.
  2. Execute the pkg command to display the Oracle Solaris patch information and version.
  1. - For Oracle Solaris 11, execute the pkg command.
# pkg info entire
          Name: entire
       Summary: entire incorporation including Support Repository Update
                (Oracle Solaris 11.1.12.5.0).
                                   * SRU version
  1. - For Oracle Solaris 10, execute the showrev command.
showrev -p
  1. To check the Oracle VM Server for SPARC version, execute the ldm command.
# ldm -V
Logical Domains Manager (v 3.1)
                         * Version of Oracle VM Server for SPARC
        Hypervisor control protocol v 1.9
        Using Hypervisor MD v 1.3
  1. The following is examples of executing commands to check logical domain configuration information.

    When checking from Oracle Solaris on the control domain
# ldm list-spconfig
factory-default (*1)
confirm_service_manual [current] (*2)
#
*1 factory-default configuration
*2 Currently running logical domain configuration

  1. When checking from the XSCF shell

Confirming the firmware configuration
Check the XCP firmware version by using the version command, which is an XSCF shell command.
  1. Log in to the XSCF shell.
  2. Execute the version command to check the firmware version information.
    In the following example, "-c xcp" is entered to confirm the overall XCP version.
XSCF> version -c xcp
BB#00-XSCF#0 (Master)
XCP0 (Reserve): 2360  (*1)
XCP1 (Current): 2360  (*2)
BB#01-XSCF#0 (Standby)
XCP0 (Reserve): 2360
XCP1 (Current): 2360
*1 Version of the XCP firmware installed at Reserve on the SPARC M10-4S with BB-ID 00
*2 Version of the XCP firmware running on the SPARC M10-4S with BB-ID 00
Check the firmware version of the PCI expansion unit by using the ioxadm command, which is an XSCF shell command.
  1. Log in to the XSCF shell.
  2. Identify the mounting locations of the PCI expansion unit and link card.
XSCF> ioxadm list
PCIBOX                     Link
PCIBOX#2007                BB#00-PCI#7 (*1)
PCIBOX#2006                BB#00-PCI#5
PCIBOX#2005                BB#00-PCI#3
PCIBOX#2004                BB#00-PCI#1
*1 Mounting locations of the PCI expansion unit and link card
  1. Execute the ioxadm command to check the firmware version information for the PCI expansion unit and link card.
XSCF> ioxadm -v list
