(Optional) Upgrading Software by Using U-Boot

If the new switch module cannot start properly (repeatedly restarts, or stops during restart and waits for user response) and the SOL serial port outputs "Can not get config file from smm. Begin reboot ...", upgrade software by using U-Boot.

NOTE:

No user name is required to log in to the MM910 U-Boot. You need to enter only the login password. The default initial password is Huawei12#$.

Procedure

  1. Use a network cable to connect a PC to the management network port (MGMT) of the active MM910 (the ACT indicator of the active MM910 is on) directly or through a LAN. For details, see "Logging In to the MM910 CLI Over a Network Port by Using PuTTY" in the MM910 Management Module V100R001 User Guide.

    • If the MGMT port on the active MM910 is already connected with a network cable, do not remove the network cable from the MGMT port. Otherwise, an active/standby switchover of the MM910s will be triggered, which may cause network interruption.
    • If you want to connect your local PC directly to the MM910 using a network cable but the MGMT port on the active MM910 is already connected with a network cable, connect the network cable from the local PC to the STACK port of the active MM910 in the chassis. If the STACK port on the active MM910 is also used, connect the network cable to an idle STACK port on an active MM910 in a chassis cascaded with the E9000 chassis.

  2. Use TFTP or other tools to set up the TFTP server. The TFTP server directory is c:\ftp. Place the switch module upgrade package in this directory.

    Figure 6-36 Setting up the TFTP server

  3. After the switch module is powered on or reset, log in to the switch module serial port over SOL. For details, see "Logging In to a Compute Node or a Switch Module over MM910 SOL" in the MM910 Management Module V100R001 User Guide. Press Ctrl+B to access U-Boot.

    Figure 6-37 U-Boot menu

  4. Enter 3 to select Update from ethernet interface, meaning that software will be upgraded through the network.

    Figure 6-38 Submenus of the Update from ethernet interface menu

  5. Enter 4 to select Modify parameters and modify network parameters, including the switch module IP address, TFTP server port IP address, gateway IP address, and network mask.

    Figure 6-39 Command output
    Table 6-4 Parameter description

    Parameter

    Description

    Server IP address

    IP address of the TFTP server.

    Switch IP address

    IP address of the switch module.

    Gateway IP address

    IP address of the gateway of the switch module.

  6. Check whether the preceding three IP addresses need to be modified.

    • If Server IP address and Switch IP address are on different network segments, Gateway IP address must be set and reside on the same network segment as Switch IP address. Otherwise, network communication fails. After setting the parameters, return to the menu selection screen, and enter 2 to start the software upgrade.
      Figure 6-40 Command output
    • If you do not need to modify the IP addresses, press Enter directly. When "Please input file name" is displayed, enter the name of the software package saved on the TFTP server, and press Enter to start the software upgrade. After the upgrade is complete, the switch module restarts automatically.

(Optional) Deleting the Configuration File of the V8 Version

If the new switch module uses V8 software and the old switch module uses V5 software, delete the V8 configuration file after the replacement.

Procedure

  1. Log in to the switch module over SOL. The default password is Huawei12#$. For details, see "Logging In to a Compute Node or a Switch Module over MM910 SOL" in the CXxxx Switch Module User Guide.
  2. Disable configuration file synchronization of switch modules.

    config-sync disable before-reboot
    <HUAWEI>config-sync disable before-reboot 
    XCU won't synchronize configuration to SMM before reboot. 

  3. Confirm the name of the V8 configuration file to be deleted on the MM910 and delete the file.

    • If the MM910 software version is earlier than 3.30:

      The switch module configuration file is saved in /common/flash/bladecfg/swiN. N indicates the switch module slot number. The values 1, 2, 3, and 4 represent slots 1E, 2X, 3X, and 4E, respectively. The switch module configuration file name swtype_plane_version.cfg consists of three parameters: swtype, plane, and version. Table 6-5 describes the three parameters.

    Table 6-5 Configuration file naming rules

    Parameter

    Description

    Value

    swtype

    Indicates the switch module type.

    The value range is 1–99.

    • 1: CX910, CX911, CX912, or CX913
    • 2: CX310
    • 3: CX110
    • 4: CX610
    • 6: CX111 or CX915
    • 8: CX710
    • 18: CX312
    • 34: CX311
    • The other values are reserved for the bladetype parameter.

    plane

    Indicates the switching plane.

    • 0: indicates the onboard GE switching plane.
    • 1: indicates the 10GE switching plane.

    version

    Indicates the software version.

    • 0: indicates V5.
    • 1: indicates V8.

    For example, the V8 configuration file of the 10GE switching plane of the CX912 in slot 2X is 1_1_1.cfg. The file deletion procedure is as follows:

    root@SMM:/#cd  //common/flash/bladecfg/swi2 
    root@SMM:/#delete 1_1_1.cfg
    • If the MM910 software version is 3.30 or later:

      Check the configuration file information saved on the MM910 by running the following command:

      smmget -l swi1 -d configinfo

      root@SMM:/#smmget -l swi1 -d configinfo 
      filename    size    createtime           boardtype 
      1_1_1.cfg 9628    14-10-17 14:39:26    CX910/CX911/CX912/CX913

    In the swiN parameter of the offlineconfig command, N indicates the switch module slot number. Before deleting the configuration file, ensure that the switch module slot number is correct.

    Delete the configuration file on the MM910.

    smmget -l swi1 -d configinfo.

    root@SMM:/#smmset -l swi1 -d offlineconfig -v rm 1_1_1.cfg 
    The currently logged user's passwd: 
    Success

  4. Restart the new switch module.

    reboot fast
    <HUAWEI>reboot fast 
    slot 4:  
    Next startup system software: flash:/CX910_CX911_CX912_CX913-FabricSwitch-V5.16. cc  
    Next startup saved-configuration file: flash:/vrpcfg.zip  
    Next startup paf file: default 
    Next startup patch package: NULL 
     
    begin synchronize configuration to SMM ...  
    slot 4: config-sync has been diabled.  
     
    Warning: The system will reboot. Continue? [Y/N]:Y     

    Enter Y. Then the switch module restarts and uses V5 software.
