About the Appliance Install Manager

Starting with the 3.1 release, you can switch to the Appliance Install Manager (AIM) window for viewing the upgrade progress. This window shows the estimated completion time, the upgrade progress bar, the main upgrade steps, the upgrade logs, and other useful information.

If you log on to the shell menu from the IPMI console during an upgrade, press Alt + F2 from the soft keyboard to open the AIM window.

The AIM window appears as soon as you start the upgrade and provides the following view modes:

  • Main

    This default view shows the main upgrade steps and task results.

  • Verbose

    This view shows the detailed upgrade logs.

To change from the Main view to the Verbose view, press the V key.

To change from the Verbose view to the Main view, press the M key.

To pause the upgrade, press the P key.

To close the AIM window and return to the shell menu, press the S key.

To show the AIM window again, enter the following command:
