NAME
iprupdate - IBM Power RAID adapter/device microcode update utility SYNOPSIS
iprupdate iprupdate --debug --check_only --daemon --use-polling --use-uevents DESCRIPTION
iprupdate is used to update the microcode on IBM storage adapters and the disk units attached to them to a minimum supported level. It can be run at any time while the ipr device driver is loaded. The utility will check the microcode revision level of each storage adapter/disk unit on the system and compare it to the microcode revision level that is installed in /etc/microcode, /usr/lib/microcode, and /lib/firmware. If the microcode level on the adapter/device is below the minimum supported level and the level of the latest image is newer, the microcode will be updated to the latest level available. It is desired that this be called in the boot process. OPTIONS
--version Print the version number of iprupdate --debug Enable additional error logging. Enabling this will result in additional errors logging to /var/log/messages. --check_only Check if any adapters or disk units are below their minimum supported level. --daemon Run as a daemon to handle adapters and devices being hotplugged. --use-polling Do not use netlink/uevent notification, but rather poll for adapter and device configuration changes. --use-uevents Use netlink/uevent notification rather than polling for adapter and device configuration changes. If not specified, polling will be used until the first uevent notification appears, then netlink will be used. AUTHOR

NAME
iprdump - IBM Power RAID adapter dump utility SYNOPSIS
iprdump [-d directory] iprdump --version --debug --use-polling --use-uevents DESCRIPTION
iprdump is used to gather information in the event of an adapter failure. The dump data will by default be saved in the /var/log/ direc- tory with the prefix iprdump.# where # will be the dump ID of the file. The ipr dump utility will make a log in the system error log when a dump is taken. The iprdump utility can be started at any time and will properly handle adapters being dynamically added and removed from the system. OPTIONS
--version Print the version number of iprdump --debug Enable additional error logging. Enabling this will result in additional errors logging to /var/log/messages. -d <directory> Directory where dump data is to be stored. Default is /var/log/. --use-polling Do not use netlink/uevent notification, but rather poll for adapter and device configuration changes. --use-uevents Use netlink/uevent notification rather than polling for adapter and device configuration changes. If not specified, polling will be used until the first uevent notification appears, then netlink will be used. AUTHOR
