Installing 7-Mode Shelf, ACP, and Disk Firmware, and Qual_Devices, whilst in the Datacenter

It’s a bit funny to post some 7-Mode stuff, but it’s still out there, and finally I learnt how it’s really easy to do the titular task!

Scenario

We’re in the datacentre, we’ve just got our trusty laptop, Mongoose Web Server, a console cable, an Ethernet cable, and the required softwares, to facilitate installing Shelf, ACP, and Disk Firmware, and Qual_Devices.

Installing ZIPs

Laptop IP is 169.254.254.1/16 (an APIPA IP that no one should be using.) We’re plugging into a spare and unused e0b port on the back of the controller. We first set e0b’s IP address, get and install the software, then clear e0b’s IP address:


ifconfig -a
ifconfig e0b 169.254.254.2 netmask 255.255.0.0
ifconfig e0b

software install http://169.254.254.1:8080/all_shelf_fw.zip -f
software install http://169.254.254.1:8080/all.zip -f
software install http://169.254.254.1:8080/qual_devices.zip -f

ifconfig e0b 0.0.0.0


Note: The -f (for force) just overwrites the files if they already exist in /etc/software.

Installing ZIPs more Slowly and Checking

Same as above, except this time we do get and then install later, and review the contents of the various directories to see they have been updated:


ifconfig -a
ifconfig e0b 169.254.254.2 netmask 255.255.0.0
ifconfig e0b

software get http://169.254.254.1:8080/all_shelf_fw.zip -f
software get http://169.254.254.1:8080/all.zip -f
software get http://169.254.254.1:8080/qual_devices.zip -f

priv set advanced
ls /etc/software

ifconfig e0b 0.0.0.0

ls /etc/shelf_fw
ls /etc/acpp_fw
ls /etc/disk_fw
rdfile /etc/qual_devices_v3

software install all_shelf_fw.zip
software install all.zip
software install qual_devices.zip

ls /etc/shelf_fw
ls /etc/acpp_fw
ls /etc/disk_fw
rdfile /etc/qual_devices_v3

sysconfig -v
storage show acp


Installing TAR and GZ Files

If you’ve not got the ZIP variants, then you can’t use “software install”. Here’s what we do:


ifconfig -a
ifconfig e0b 169.254.254.2 netmask 255.255.0.0
ifconfig e0b

software get http://169.254.254.1:8080/all_shelf_fw.tar -f
software get http://169.254.254.1:8080/all.gz -f
software get http://169.254.254.1:8080/qual_devices_tar.gz -f

priv set diag
ls /etc/software

ifconfig e0b 0.0.0.0

ls /etc/shelf_fw
ls /etc/acpp_fw
ls /etc/disk_fw
rdfile /etc/qual_devices_v3

useradmin diaguser password
useradmin diaguser unlock

cd /mroot/etc/software

tar -zxvf all_shelf_fw.tar
tar -zxvf all.gz
tar -zxvf qual_devices_tar.gz

mv /mroot/etc/software/shelf_fw/* /mroot/etc/shelf_fw/
mv /mroot/etc/software/acpp_fw/* /mroot/etc/acpp_fw/
mv /mroot/etc/software/disk_fw/* /mroot/etc/disk_fw/
mv /mroot/etc/software/qual_devices_v3 /mroot/etc/qual_devices_v3

rm /mroot/etc/software/all_shelf_fw.tar
rm /mroot/etc/software/all.gz
rm /mroot/etc/software/qual_devices_tar.gz
ls /mroot/etc/software

exit

storage download shelf
storage download acp
options raid.background_disk_fw_update.enable # Default is on
options raid.background_disk_fw_update.enable on # If off

sysconfig -v
storage show acp

useradmin diaguser lock
