system service-processor image update

Update Service Processor firmware

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The system service-processor image update command installs a new firmware version on the Service Processor (SP) or Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) of specified node in a cluster. If this command fails, it will display and log an appropriate error message and abort. No automatic command retries will be performed. This command also specifies which firmware image is to be installed on the SP or BMC and how.

You can use the command system service-processor image update-progress show to check the progress of the update.

The following parameter combinations are not supported for this command:

Parameters

-node {<nodename>|local} - Node
This parameter specifies the node whose SP or BMC firmware is to be updated.
[-package <text>] - Firmware Package
This parameter specifies the package that will be installed. You can find the package file in the SP Update Repository field of the system node image package show command. If you do not specify this parameter, the SP or BMC is updated to the most recent version of the firmware that is available in the update repository. You must specify this parameter if baseline is false or omitted.
[-baseline {true|false}] - Install Baseline
If you set this parameter to true, the command installs the SP or BMC firmware version that is bundled with the currently running release of ONTAP. This is a safety mechanism that allows you to revert the SP or BMC firmware to the version that was qualified and bundled with the currently running version of ONTAP on your system. If not specified, this parameter defaults to false.

Examples

The following command reverts the firmware on the SP or BMC of the local node to the version that was packaged with the currently running release of ONTAP. The second command displays the status of the in-progress firmware install.
cluster1::> system service-processor image update -node local -baseline true
