SYNOPSIS

flash_ETS [--help] [--db connectstring] <item>...


DESCRIPTION

This script only applies to Device::TermSrvr::ETS hardware. It connects to the terminal server and initializes a reload of the ETS firmware.

The ETS32 documentation states:

  >> INITIALIZE RELOAD
    On Flash-ROM equipped servers, this will cause the server to
    attempt to redownload its executable code.  If it cannot, it
    will boot from the saved version.

The firmware will be downloaded via tftp. The filename can be determined by connecting to the terminal server and running:

  >> SHOW SERVER BOOTPARAMS

The "Software File:" line should list the file you need to use, usually it is "ETS32PR.SYS".


OPTIONS

--db <connectstring> Database type and connection information. For GDBM, "GDBM:" followed by the filename of the cluster database to use. For LDAP, the syntax is "LDAP:host:port:dbname"

--help Print extended usage information

--man Print this manpage.


NOTES

flash_ETS will accept multiple devices or collection on the command line, and operate on them sequentially.


FILES
