Options

Parameter

Description

Range

Default Value

ipmc module module_id

Upgrades the ipmc firmware on the specified traffic module.

See equipment chassis module for the correct syntax for module identifiers.

None

l2-switch chassis_id

Upgrades the l2-switch firmware on the CMM.

A valid chassis identifier (for example, chassis:1)

None

retimer module module_id

Specifies the containing UFM6 module for re-timer firmware upgrade.

See equipment chassis module for the correct syntax for module identifiers.

The module identifier must refer to a UFM6 module.

None

port port

Upgrades the re-timer firmware on the specified dual-mode port.

You can upgrade a specific dual-mode port or you can upgrade all dual-mode ports within the containing UFM6.

You must change the admin-status of the transceiver to down before you can upgrade the re-timer firmware on the associated port.

If you use the all option, you must change the admin-status of all1 dual-mode transceivers to down before you can issue this command successfully. If the admin-status of any dual-mode transceiver is up, this command with the all option is rejected.

This command does not affect service on ports (dual-mode or otherwise) that are not being upgraded.

The following are the valid values:

  • 1 - client port 1

  • 2 - client port 2

  • 6 - client port 6

  • 7 - client port 7

  • all - client ports 1, 2, 6, and 7

None

1 If one or more of the dual-mode ports has already been upgraded and is carrying traffic, you should not use the all option because the all option requires you to disable all dual-mode transceivers regardless of whether they have been upgraded or not.
