2.3.3 Installation Configuration For any type of Communication Server (CPU7-2 board, CS-2 board or Appliance Server), the default configuration of the V24 port is: • Speed, 9600 bds. • 8 bits. • No parity. • 1 stop bit. • XON/XOFF Connect a terminal with VT100 emulation (,Hyper-terminal, PuTTY, minicom, etc.). Connect the Communication Server to the installation server PC using a crossed Ethernet cable or a hub or switch. For an Appliance Server, use Ethernet connector 1. Appliance Servers must have an up to date version of the BIOS. For more information, refer to Document . CS-2 boards must have BIOS version 8.3 or higher. If this is not the case, return the board to the after- sales department. CPU7-2 boards must have BIOS version 3BA24115AAFC or higher. If this is not the case, return the board to the after-sales department. To check BIOS version on a CPU7-2: 1. Log in as root 2. Launch a command line and type the uhwconf command 3. The output of this command is for example : BIOS Version : 3BA24115AAEB 4. Check the BIOS version BIOS version must be greater than or equal to 3BA24115AAFC bscpu7300/004.003. If the BIOS version is lower than 3BA24115AAFC bscpu7300/004.003: the BIOS update is required. Caution: As the OmniPCX Enterprise PC Installer application runs the TFTP, FTP, and DHCP servers, standard installation of a Communication Server is performed outside the client LAN and therefore requires a direct Ethernet connection between the Communication Server and the installation server PC. To update the BIOS version, follow this procedure: 1. Login to the CPU7-2 using the root account 2. Use ftp/sftp to transfer the bsp_cpu7.hex file to the /tmpd folder of the OmniPCX Enterprise node for which the BIOS has to be updated 3. Use the cp command to copy the BIOS binary file bsp_cpu7.hex to the location /usr2/downbin/ Example: [root@cpu7s2_33 tmpd]# cp /tmpd/bsp_cpu7.hex /usr2/downbin/bsp_cpu7.hex 4. Click y (yes) to overwrite the existing file Example: cp: overwrite `/usr2/downbin/bsp_cpu7.hex'? y [root@cpu7s2_33 tmpd]# 5. Reboot the CPU-7 2 During BIOS reboot, the BIOS is automatically flashed if the existing BIOS version is lower than the version placed in /usr2/downbin/bsp_cpu7.hex 6. When the flash is completed, reboot the CPU7-2 again The CPU boots with the new BIOS Caution: During flashing, do not hard reboot the board and do not remove the power.
