CAP PROBLEM OVERVIEW: How to update XCP firmware


To report errors or request improvements on this procedure, please go to My Oracle Support, and  put a comment on Doc ID: 2105781.1

 

Notes:
  • execute the rebootxscf(8) command from the Active XSCF to reset the Active (and the Standby XSCF if applicable) before upgrading this XCP release
  • although upgrading XCP Firmware from CLI is the preferred method, it's possible to upgrade from the BUI : Menu / Utilities / Firmware Update.

 

Before starting the firmware update procedure, obtain the latest XCP firmware by downloading the appropriate patch to a location that is network-connected with the XSCF unit.

Make sure to check Fujitsu M10-1/M10-4/M10-4S XSCF Control Package (XCP) Firmware Image Software Version Matrix Information (Doc ID 1554086.1) or Fujitsu M12-2/M12-2S XSCF Control Package (XCP) Firmware Image Software Version Matrix Information (Doc ID 2241012.1) to ensure you are using the latest available XCP version for the Fujitsu M10/M12 servers or the Fujitsu M10 PCI Expansion Unit.

Consult "Fujitsu M10 PCI Expansion Unit Firmware Version Matrix Information (Doc ID 1924671.1)" to locate the proper firmware for the PCI Expansion Unit.

Decompress the patch file in the network location on which you downloaded it, and which is reachable by the XSCF.
