Saving Controller Firmware to a Disk Image

The Storage Manager on ROM (SMOR) utility now provides you with a way
to save the current ROM software on your controller to a bootable
diskette. The resulting diskette is a bootable disk and contains a
copy of the three controller software components: firmware, I2O BIOS
and SMOR. The utility also saves the current and default NVRAM

The diskette will contain the following files:

    Where bbbb is the build number and vvv is the version.
    Where vvv is the version.
    Where ffff is the adapter firmware type (ffff can be "3754" or "2554").
    vv is the version and bb is the build.
    The current NVRAM settings for this controller.
    Default NVRAM settings. vvvvvvvv is the specific version of the default
    NVRAM settings if previously named.
    This file is used to guarantee that the diskette will boot if
    there is no current SMOR image available on the controller. (Where
    bbb is the build number and vvv is the version of the in-memory
    copy of SMOR.) The build and version may or may not be identical
    to the SMOR image copied from the flash memory of the controller.

To create the diskette:

1. Press Ctrl+D during when the DPT I2O BIOS banner appears during system 
   startup to start SMOR.

2. Move the highlight to the controller that you want to backup.

3. Insert a diskette into the host diskette drive.

NOTE:  This operation overwrites the entire diskette. Any existing 
       data is erased.

4. Press Alt+A to select the Action drop-down menu.

5. Select Save Firmware. Press Tab to highlight Yes when prompted.
   Press Enter to begin the flash update.

The operation starts immediately. SMOR displays a progress bar and
numerical percentage of completion. When the operation is complete
you can exit SMOR and start the system normally.

To use the firmware backup:

1. Insert the diskette with the backup images into your diskette drive.

2. Power on or restart your system.

   The system will boot from the diskette and start SMOR automatically.
3. Highlight the controller that you want to update.

4. Select Alt-A to open the Action menu and select Flash HBA.

5. Highlight the diskette drive and press Enter.

   SMOR will display a list of valid files on the diskette.
6. Highlight the software image you want to use and press Tab to highlight Ok. 
   Press Enter to start the flash update operation.
   SMOR will read the file and verify that is a valid flash image.
7. Press Tab to highlight Yes and press Enter to begin the flash update.

8. Press Enter when you see the confirmation prompt 

9. When the flash update is complete you must restart the system to
   enable the new software.
