  10. Refer to the Install.info file of any Firmware patch for information on firmware verification and compatibility.

FlashPROM Notes

  1. Use the Flash PROM Programming Utility to update the FCode.
  2. Use the prom-copy command (src dst prom-copy) to copy a flash PROM.
    ok 2 b prom-copy (copies from board 2 to board 11)
  3. Use the update-proms command to synchronize the latest version of the flash PROM installed in the system to all boards of the same type.

NVRAM Notes

  1. The Clock Board and I/O Board NVRAMs are automatically synchronized when the Clock Board NVRAM contents matches at least one I/O Board NVRAM.
  2. Use the following OBP command to manually synchronize a new or replacement I/O Board to an existing Clock Board:
    ok copy-clock-tod-to-io-boards
  3. Use the following OBP command to manually synchronize a new or replacement Clock Board to an existing I/O Board:
    ok (ioboard# in hex) copy-io-board-tod-to-clock-tod
