Obtaining firmware updates
Use the Chassis Management Module to update the chassis firmware.
- Chassis Management Module
- Compute nodes
- I/O modules
In addition, some of the optional hardware devices that you can order for the chassis have device drivers that you must install.
For example, Ethernet controllers are integrated on each compute node system board. The Ethernet controllers provide 1000 Mbps full-duplex capability only, which enables simultaneous transmission and reception of data to the external ports on the Ethernet switches. You do not have to set any jumpers or configure the controller for the compute node operating system. However, you must install a device driver in the compute node to enable the compute node operating system to address the Ethernet controller.
See the documentation that comes with your optional hardware devices for information about installing any required device drivers.
Using the Chassis Management Module
For more information about using the Chassis Management Module web interface to update the chassis firmware, see ../com.ibm.acc.cmm.doc/cmm_ui_chassis_management.html.
You can use the Chassis Management Module command-line interface to update the chassis firmware. See ../com.ibm.acc.cmm.doc/cli_command_update.html for more information.
