Validate disk firmware installation

Steps
  1. Verify that the drive firmware is installed:

    ::*> storage disk show -fields firmware-revision,model
    disk     firmware-revision model
    --------------- ----------------- ----------------
    1.11.0   NA01              X423_HCOBE900A10
    1.11.1   NA01              X423_HCOBE900A10
    1.11.2   NA01              X423_HCOBE900A10
    1.11.3   NA01              X423_HCOBE900A10
    1.11.4   NA01              X423_HCOBE900A10

    For more information about the command, refer to storage disk show.

  2. Verify that the new NVMe Flash Cache firmware is installed:

    ::*> system controller flash-cache show

    For more information about the command, refer to system controller flash-cache show.

Validate shelf firmware installation

Steps
  1. Verify that the new shelf firmware is updated:

    ::*> system node run -node * -command sysconfig -v

    In the output, verify that each shelf’s firmware is updated to the desired level. For example:

    Shelf 1: IOM6 Firmware rev. IOM6 A: 0191 IOM3 B: 0191

    For more information about the command, refer to system node run.

  2. Verify that the new ACP firmware is updated:

    ::*> storage shelf acp module show -instance

    For more information about the command, refer to storage shelf acp module show.

  3. Verify that the desired ACP mode is configured:

    ::*> storage shelf acp show

    For more information about the command, refer to storage shelf acp show.

  4. Change the ACP mode (channel):

    ::*> storage shelf acp configure -channel [in-band | out-of-band]

    For more information about the command, refer to storage shelf acp configure.

Validating SP/BMC Firmware installation

The Ansible Playbook for Service Processor/BMC firmware updates is enabled with an option to verify the installation of latest SP/BMC firmware on the controller. After the verification is complete (the updates could take a maximum time of two hours), the Ansible Playbook applies internal switch firmware updates by connecting to the SP/BMC console.

The failure and success information for SP/BMC firmware and the internal switch firmware installations will be notified at the end of Ansible Playbook execution. Follow the steps mentioned in the Ansible Playbook in case the SP/BMC firmware/internal switch firmware installation fails.
