Abstract

Veritas Appliance firmware update tool

Description

Description

 

The Veritas Appliance firmware update tool is a replacement for the Manage > Software > Firmware command. Starting with NetBackup Appliance release 3.2, this tool is the recommended method for firmware updates.

 

The firmware update is packaged as an Emergency Engineering Binary (EEB). Firmware update EEBs are currently available for the following appliance platforms and their associated software versions:

 

  • NetBackup Appliance 3.2
  • NetBackup Appliance 3.1.2
  • NetBackup Appliance 3.1.1

 

The EEB installs the Veritas Standalone firmware Update and Recovery Environment. This is a standalone operating system which is booted by the appliance to deploy the firmware updates in a controlled and isolated environment. Upon completion of the firmware updates, the appliance automatically reboots back into the primary application operating system.

 

If an earlier version of this EEB is already installed you must uninstall (roll back) the previous EEB first before installing the updated version.
