Comment flasher l’OBP de votre Ultra 5 / 10 .... Le patch 106121-18 permet
entre autre de faire fonctionner les nouvelles fonctionnalitées de Solaris 8
02/02 et Solaris 9.

Exemple : faire des installations de machine avec Jumpstart et des
clients en DHCP. Il faut que ces derniers aient au moins une OBP supérieurs à
3.25 .

Patch Installation Instructions :
================================

Intro


This README is intended for users who wish to upgrade the firmware in their
Ultra 5/10 system Flash PROM.

Summary of the Patch Installation Process :
------------------------------------------

The installation shall comprise of the following steps

1) Determine the system’s current Flash PROM firmware revision.

2) Compare the current Flash PROM firmware revision with the available or
latest Flash PROM firmware revisions.

3) If the current Flash PROM firmware revision is lower than the latest
available firmware revision in this patch, then proceed to the next step.
If NOT, STOP : DO NOT CONTINUE.

4) Prepare the system for the Flash PROM update

5) Running the Flash PROM Utility

6) Verifying successful Flash PROM Update

7) Restoring the system

8) Resume operations

Patch Installation instructions (in detail) :
============================================

The required steps are explained in greater detail below.

1) Determine the System’s Current Firmware Revisions
-------------------------------------------------

While the OS is running the following command may be used to
determine the current system firmware revisions ;

/usr/sbin/prtconf -V

The firmware revisions may also be determined from the PROM monitor’s
"ok" prompt with the following command ;

.version

2) Compare the current Flash PROM firmware revision with the available or
latest Flash PROM firmware revisions.

Compare the output of the OBP line in the "prtconf -V" output. Find
the revision number and compare with the revision on the entries below
that of the "flash-update-Ultra510-latest" line ;

All Models
OBP : 3.31 Version 0 created 2001/07/25 20:36
POST : 3.1.0

3) Is the UPGRADE NECESSARY ?

If the current Flash PROM revision matches the version numbers given under
the flash-update-Ultra510-latest line, then STOP Here. This UPGRADE IS NOT
NECESSARY.

If the current Flash PROM firmware revision is lower than the latest
firmware revision in this patch, then proceed to the next step.

4) Preparing the System
---------------------

a) As root, copy the latest "flash-update" file from the directory
containing the patch to the root directory as follows :

# cp flash*latest /
# chmod 755 /flash-update*

In order to boot the binary, it must be located within the root
partition. If it is not already located within the root partition
then move it to /. If the binary is already located elsewhere
within the root partition then note the exact filepath so that the
binary can be booted later.

b) As root, exit the OS such that the system returns to the PROM’s "ok"
prompt :

# halt

ok

c) Power off the system.

** CAUTION ** Do not attempt to access any part of the system hardware
with the system power still on !

d) Remove the system top cover. (If you unsure how to do this then
consult your system "Installation Guide" or "Service Manual".)

e) Set JP2 to write enable at 2+3. Default is write protect at 1+2
Locate jumper JP2.

Jumper JP2 provides a write enable/disable mechanism for the
Flash PROM. JP2 normally connects pins 1+2, which causes the
Flash PROM to be write protected. To enable patch installation,
write enable the Flash PROM by MOVING the JP2 jumper from pins 1+2
to pins 2+3.

**IMPORTANT NOTE** : If this jumper is NOT set to WRITE ENABLE, the
Flash update will fail.

(If you have difficulty locating JP2 then consult Figure 1-3 in the
"Sun Flash PROM Guide for Workstations and Workgroup Servers -
Standalone Version").

f) Replace the system top cover.

5) Running the Flash Update Utility
--------------------------------

a) Power on the system

Wait for the PROM’s banner to appear, and then

b) use the Stop-A keys (or Break key, if running from a serial line) to
abort the auto-boot sequence.

** NOTE ** If the flash update completes normally then the values
contained within the system’s Non-Volatile RAM (NVRAM) configuration
variables will be retained. However, if the update process is some-
how interrrupted then it is possible that any non-default values
contained in NVRAM will be lost. For this reason it is recommended
that you note down on paper the contents of any NVRAM configuration
variable which has been customized so that they may be manually
restored at a later time, if necessary. (Use the PROM’s "printenv"
command to list the variables and their values.)

c) The system should now display the PROM monitor’s "ok" prompt.
Now boot the Flash update utility as given below :

CAUTION : Do not boot/run revisions lower than the latest unless you
are absolutely sure that that is what you want to do !

ok boot disk /flash-update-Ultra510-latest

NOTE : If your system’s boot device is not "disk" then you will
have to specify the appropriate devalias (e.g. disk2).
If the binary is located in a location other than / then
provide the entire filepath after the boot device.

Answer the questions as prompted by the utility.

Note that the section "Restoring previous NVRAM environment settings..."
up to the "Resetting ..." line will only be displayed on serial port A.
If you are running from the keyboard/console devices then you will not
see those lines displayed.

Once the PROM’s banner reappears then use the Stop-A keys (or Break
key, if running from a serial line) to abort the auto-boot sequence
if the system begins to boot.

6) Verifying successful Flash PROM Update

Verify from the results of the .version command that the OBP
version matches the OBP version given above under the
flash-update-Ultra510-latest entry in Step 2.

7) Restoring the system

The system should be restored to the original set-up as follows :

a) Turn the power to the system off.
b) Remove the top cover and move jumper JP2 to pins 1+2.
c) Replace the top cover.

If any problems should be encountered during the firmware upgrade
then consult the "Sun Flash PROM Guide for Workstations and Workgroup
Servers - Standalone Version".

8) Resume operations

a) Turn on the system power and allow the system to boot the
operating system.

b) Once the system has rebooted you may wish to remove the Flash Update
binaries and documents since they will no longer be needed.

# rm /flash-update*

c) Remember to remove the files from their original location if
they were not extracted directly into the root directory.

Special Install Instructions :


**************************************************************************
**************************************************************************
**WARNING :****WARNING :****WARNING :****WARNING :****WARNING :****WARNING :**

* PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY AND ENTIRELY. PLEASE FOLLOW THE
INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY AS THEY ARE STATED.

* FAILURE TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS COULD EITHER RESULT IN A DEFECTIVE BOARD OR
UNSUCCESSFUL FLASH PROM UPDATE.

* THIS IS NOT A STANDARD PATCH in that it does not use the installpatch
and backoutpatch scripts.

* THIS PATCH CANNOT BE INSTALLED ON AN ONLINE OPERATING SYSTEM BECAUSE
THE INSTALL INSTRUCTIONS REQUIRES THAT THE SYSTEM BE BROUGHT DOWN.
BE SURE TO SCHEDULE DOWN TIME TO INSTALL THIS PATCH.

* INSTALLATION OF THIS PATCH REQUIRES A HARDWARE JUMPER CHANGE. IF YOU ARE
UNSURE ON HOW TO OPEN THE SYSTEM BOX, PLEASE ENSURE THAT A QUALIFIED
PERSON, WITH THE STATIC WRIST STRAP KIT NEEDED TO SERVICE ELECTRONIC
EQUIPMENT, IS AVAILABLE TO COMPLETE THIS ACTIVITY. FAILURE TO USE STATIC
PROTECTION KIT OR IMPROPER HANDLING COULD RESULT IN THE DAMAGE OF THE
SYSTEM BOARD.

* PLEASE REVIEW NOT ONLY THIS README BUT ALSO ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTATION
GIVEN.
The file "802-3233-xx.ps" (where xx stands for the latest numeric
revision) is a PostScript copy of the "Sun Flash PROM Guide for Workstations
and Workgroup Servers - Standalone Version", which provides the following ;

(i) A board-level diagram that gives the approximate location of the
hardware jumper (that will need to be changed).

Note, however, that The Flash PROM Guide was originally written for
a user who is running the Flash PROM update utility from a bootable
CDROM, and thus it will not contain the proper boot commands for
installation of this patch. Also note that the instructions in
the document for installing packages are not valid for this patch.

* TAKE EVERY PRECAUTION TO ENSURE THAT THE UPGRADE IS NOT INTERRUPTED
ONCE IT IS STARTED !
