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


The system node firmware download command downloads new system firmware to the boot device. A reboot followed by the 'update_flash' command at the firmware prompt is required for the firmware to take effect.


-node {<nodename>|local} - Node

This specifies the node or nodes on which the firmware is to be updated.

-package <text> - Package URL

This parameter specifies the URL that provides the location of the package to be fetched. Standard URL schemes, including HTTP, FTP and FILE, are accepted. The FILE URL scheme can be used to specify location of the package to be fetched from an external device connected to the storage controller. Currently, only USB mass storage devices are supported. The USB device is specified as file://usb0/<filename> . Typically, the file name is image.tgz . The package must be present in the root directory of the USB mass storage device.


The following example downloads firmware to node-01 from a web server:

cluster1::*> system node firmware download -node node-01 -package
