Maintenance Commands eeprom(1M)

NAME
eeprom - EEPROM display and load utility

SYNOPSIS
SPARC
/usr/platform/ platform-name /sbin/eeprom [ - ] [
-f device ] [ parameter [ =value ] ]

IA
/usr/platform/ platform-name /sbin/eeprom [ - ] [
-f device ] [ -I ] [ mmu-modlist ] [ parameter [
=value ] ]

DESCRIPTION
eeprom displays or changes the values of parameters in the
EEPROM. It processes parameters in the order given. When
processing a parameter accompanied by a value, eeprom makes
the indicated alteration to the EEPROM ; otherwise it
displays the parameter’s value. When given no parameter
specifiers, eeprom displays the values of all EEPROM parame-
ters. A `-’ (hyphen) flag specifies that parameters and
values are to be read from the standard input (one parameter
or parameter =value per line).

Only the super-user may alter the EEPROM contents.

eeprom verifies the EEPROM checksums and complains if they
are incorrect.

platform-name is the name of the platform implementation and
can be found using the -i option of uname(1).

SPARC
SPARC based systems implement firmware password protection
with eeprom using the security-mode, security-password and
security-#badlogins properties.

IA
EEPROM storage is simulated using a file residing in the
platform specific boot area. The /platform/platform-
name/boot/solaris/bootenv.rc file simulates EEPROM storage.

Because IA based systems typically implement password pro-
tection in the sytem BIOS, there is no support for pass-
word protection in the eeprom program. While it is possible
to set the security-mode, security-password and security-
#badlogins properties on IA based systems, these properties
have no special meaning or behavior on IA based systems.

OPTIONS
-f device
Use device as the EEPROM device.

IA Only
-I Initialize boot properties on an IA based system. Only
init(1M) run-level initialization scripts should use
this option.

OPERANDS
IA Only
acpi-user-options
A configuration variable that controls the use of
ACPI. A value of 0x0 attempts to use ACPI if it is
available on the system. A value of 0x2 disables the
use of ACPI. The default value is 0x0.

mmu-modlist
A colon-separated list of candidate modules that
implement memory management. If mmu-modlist is
defined, it overrides the default list derived from
the memory configuration on IA based systems. Instead,
the first module in the list that is found in
/platform/platform-name/kernel/mmu is used.

NVRAM CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS
Not all OpenBoot systems support all parameters. Defaults
may vary depending on the system and the PROM revision.

auto-boot ?
If true, boot automatically after power-on or reset.
Defaults to true.

ansi-terminal ?
Configuration variable used to control the behavior of
the terminal emulator. The value false makes the ter-
minal emulator stop interpreting ANSI escape
sequences, instead just echoing them to the output
device. Default value : true.

boot-command
Command executed if auto-boot ? is true. Default value
is boot.

boot-device
Device from which to boot. boot-device may contain 0
or more device specifiers separated by spaces. Each
device specifier may be either a prom device alias or
a prom device path. The boot prom will attempt to open
each successive device specifier in the list beginning
with the first device specifier. The first device
specifier which opens successfully will be used as
the device to boot from. Defaults to disk net.

boot-file
File to boot (an empty string lets the secondary
booter choose default). Defaults to empty string.

boot-from
Boot device and file (OpenBoot PROM version 1.x only).
Defaults to vmunix.

boot-from-diag
Diagnostic boot device and file (OpenBoot PROM version
1.x only). Defaults to le()unix.

comX-noprobe
Where X is the number of the serial port, prevents
device probe on serial port X.

diag-device
Diagnostic boot source device. Defaults to net.

diag-file
File from which to boot in diagnostic mode. Defaults
to empty string.

diag-level
Diagnostics level. Values include off, min,max and
menus. There may be additional platform-specific
values. When set to off, POST is not called. If POST
is called, the value is made available as an argument
to, and is interpretted by POST. The default value is
platform-dependent.

diag-switch ?
If true, run in diagnostic mode. Defaults to true.

fcode-debug ?
If true, include name parameter for plug-in device
FCodes. Defaults to false.

hardware-revision
System version information.

input-device
Input device used at power-on (usually keyboard, ttya,
or ttyb). Defaults to keyboard.

keyboard-click ?
If true enable keyboard click. Defaults to false.

keymap
Keymap for custom keyboard.

last-hardware-update
System update information.

load-base
Default load address for client programs. Default
value is 16384.

local-mac-address ?
If true, network drivers use their own MAC address,
not system’s. Defaults to false.

mfg-mode
Manufacturing mode argument for POST. Possible values
include off or chamber. The value is passed as an
argument to POST. Default value : off.

mfg-switch ?
If true, repeat system self-tests until interrupted
with STOP-A. Defaults to false.

nvramrc
Contents of NVRAMRC. Defaults to empty.

oem-banner
Custom OEM banner (enabled by setting oem-banner ? to
true). Defaults to empty string.

oem-banner ?
If true, use custom OEM banner. Defaults to false.

oem-logo
Byte array custom OEM logo (enabled by setting oem-
logo ? to true). Displayed in hexadecimal.

oem-logo ?
If true, use custom OEM logo (else, use Sun logo).
Defaults to false.

output-device
Output device used at power-on (usually screen, ttya,
or ttyb). Defaults to screen.

sbus-probe-list
Which SBus slots are probed and in what order.
Defaults to 0123.

screen-#columns
Number of on-screen columns (characters/line).
Defaults to 80.

screen-#rows
Number of on-screen rows (lines). Defaults to 34.

scsi-initiator-id
SCSI bus address of host adapter, range 0-7. Defaults
to 7.

sd-targets
Map SCSI disk units (OpenBoot PROM version 1.x only).
Defaults to 31204567, which means that unit 0 maps to
target 3, unit 1 maps to target 1, and so on.

security-#badlogins
Number of incorrect security password attempts.

This property has no special meaning or behavior on IA
based systems.

security-mode
Firmware security level (options : none, command, or
full). If set to command or full, system will prompt
for PROM security password. Defaults to none.

This property has no special meaning or behavior on IA
based systems.

security-password
Firmware security password (never displayed). Can be
set only when security-mode is set to command or full.

This property has no special meaning or behavior on IA
based systems.

example# eeprom security-password=

If true, POST does not do VMEbus loopback tests.
Defaults to false.

st-targets
Map SCSI tape units (OpenBoot PROM version 1.x only).
Defaults to 45670123, which means that unit 0 maps to
target 4, unit 1 maps to target 5, and so on.

EXAMPLES
Example 1 : Changing the number of megabytes of RAM.

The following example demonstrates the method for changing
from one to two the number of megabytes of RAM that the sys-
tem will test.

example# eeprom selftest-#megs
selftest-#megs=1

example# eeprom selftest-#megs=2

example# eeprom selftest-#megs
selftest-#megs=2

Example 2 : Setting the auto-boot ? parameter to true.

The following example demonstrates the method for setting
the auto-boot ? parameter to true.

example# eeprom auto-boot ?=true

When the eeprom command is executed in user mode, the param-
eters with a trailing question mark (?) need to be enclosed
in double quotation marks (" ") to prevent the shell from
interpreting the question mark. Preceding the question mark
with an escape character (\) will also prevent the shell
from interpreting the question mark.

example% eeprom "auto-boot ?"=true

FILES
/dev/openprom
device file

/usr/platform/platform-name/sbin/eeprom
Platform-specific version of eeprom. Use uname -i. to
obtain platform-name.
