The below command will provide a command line interface to update firmware #dsu dsu --version Displaying the DSU utility version.
#dsu --inventory     To see the System Inventory DSU allows category based device updates #dsu --get-categories     Gets the supported category values #dsu --category= categories #dsu --non-interactive     DSU supports devices updates in a non-interactive way where all the updatable components will be selected automatically and apply those updates without user intervention.
AIX doesn't just automatically run /usr/sbin/updtvpkg every time that something gets installed or deinstalled because on some slower systems with lots of software installed, /usr/sbin/updtvpkg can take a LONG time.
Update the Map R Installer to include the latest Map R ecosystem packages and installer fixes.
#yum --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=dell-system-update_dependent upgrade #zypper mr -da; zypper mr -e "dell-system-update_dependent" ; zypper update; zypper mr -ea; Note:-To update from local repository (custom), use the OMSA repository name instead of dell-system-update_dependent in the commands.
In case of zypper upgrade, if there are repositories disabled by you, this command sequence will enable the repositories.
You can even have to reinstall the system if you use it wrong. When installing package upgrades don't pass them all as a parameter to RPM command.
There are no init scripts or install scripts in this package.Since AIX-rpm has to have some sort of version number, it simply reflects the level of on the system where /usr/sbin/updtvpkg is being run.It's just informational - nothing should be checking the level of AIX-rpm.You have to disable the repositories again manually.To get the complete list of options of DSU (On Microsoft Windows and Linux), use #dsu --help A good place for support for this repository is the linux-poweredge mailing list.
