Publication Date:  2015-06-26 Views:  1328 Downloads:  0

Issue Description

Applicable Models:
This fault may occur on IPC6100 series box network cameras.
For the methods of upgrading IPCs of other models using commands, see the corresponding User Guide.

How Should I Upgrade an IPC Using Commands?


Step 1 Create an SFTP server, and configure the user name, password, and file path.

Step 2 Place the upgrade file in the specified directory on the SFTP server or in a new folder in the specified directory.

For details about how to obtain the upgrade package, see section Obtaining IPC Upgrade Packages(As Follow).

Step 3 Use SSH to log in to the IPC as the admin user.

Step 4 Run the su - root command to switch to the root user.

For details about the default passwords of the admin and root users, see the <<User Guide >> corresponding to the faulty device.

Step 5 Run the cd /usr/app/bin/ command to go to the bin directory.

Step 6 Run the ./update sftp [IPAddr] [FilePath] [Mode] command to start the upgrade.

 IPAddr: IP address of the SFTP server.
 FilePath: path where the upgrade file is stored on the SFTP server. Assume that the specified directory for storing the upgrade file on the SFTP server is D:\update, the path where the upgrade file is stored is D:\update\file, and the upgrade file name is updatefile. The value of this parameter is file/updatefile. If the upgrade file is directly stored in the specified directory on the SFTP server, you do not need to set this parameter.
 Mode: When this parameter is set to -f, the upgrade is performed forcibly. The parameter can be left blank.

For example, if you run the ./update sftp IPC6112_V100R001C10.bin command, the following information is displayed.

root@Huawei:/usr/app/bin# ./update sftp IPC6112_V100R001C10.bin

admin@'s password:     

Step 7 Enter the user name and password set in Step 1 as prompted.

Enter yes when the system asks you whether to continue.
