Upgrading the Firmware by Mounting a Local Folder

Upgrading the Firmware by Mounting a Local Folder


This section describes how to upgrade the firmware by mounting the iBMC local folder on FwUpgrade. This method applies to iBMC V242 and later versions. The following uses the MZ912 as an example to describe how to upgrade the firmware using FwUpgrade.


  • Conditions
    • A Huawei V2 or V3 server is available.
    • You have obtained the image file of FwUpgrade.
  • Data

    You have obtained the following data:

    • IP address of the iBMC management network port
    • User name and password of the iBMC


  1. Download the firmware package (for example, of the drive, NIC, or RAID controller card from the Support or Support-E website. Ensure that the firmware package contains the automatic upgrade script

    • Download the firmware package of the drive from Support or Support-E.
    • Download the firmware package of the NIC and RAID controller card from Support or Support-E.
    • Do not decompress the downloaded firmware package.

  2. Mount the ISO image file and restart the server. For details, see Mounting FwUpgrade Using the Remote Virtual Console.
  3. During the FwUpgrade startup, enter C or c and press Enter when the information shown in Figure 2-1 is displayed.

    The FwUpgrade CLI is accessed.

    Figure 2-1 Displayed information

    Enter the letter within 30 seconds after the information is displayed.

  4. On the iBMC or iMana virtual console, click Disconnect to disconnect the mounted FwUpgrade ISO image, as shown in Figure 2-2.

    Figure 2-2 Disconnecting the ISO image

  5. Select Directory on the virtual console and click Browse. Select the local directory where the firmware package is stored, and click Connect to mount the local directory, as shown in Figure 2-3.

  6. On the FwUpgrade CLI, run the cd /home command to go to the home directory and run the mkdir command to create the FW_dev and FW_install directories.

  7. Run the ls /dev/sr* command to confirm that /dev/srN exists. N is a device number starting from 0.

    If the server is configured with a physical DVD-ROM drive or an external USB device is connected to the server, multiple devices such as /dev/sr0 and /dev/sr1 are displayed. In this case, you need to check which device the local directory is mounted to according to Step 8 and Step 9.

  8. Mount /dev/srN to the FW_dev directory in sequence from /dev/sr0. For example, to mount /dev/sr0, run the mount /dev/sr0 /home/FW_dev command.

  9. Run the ls FW_dev command to check whether the firmware package exists in the FW_dev directory. If the package exists, go to Step 10. If the package does not exist, run the umount FW_dev command to return to Step 8 and mount the device of the next number.

  10. Run the cp -rf FW_dev/* FW_install/ command to copy the firmware package from the FW_dev directory to the FW_install directory.

  11. Run the cd FW_install/ command to go to the FW_install directory.
  12. Run the unzip -q command to decompress the firmware package (XXX indicates the firmware package name).

  13. Run the chmod +x * command to grant operation permissions to all files in the FW_install directory.

  14. Run the sh upgrade command to perform the upgrade.

  15. After the upgrade is complete, run the cat work.log command to query the upgrade result, as shown in Figure 2-4.

    Figure 2-4 Querying the upgrade result

    The displayed information is different after the upgrade is successfully performed for the firmware of the drive, NIC, and RAID controller card.

  16. Run the reboot command to restart the system.
