Upgrading the BIOS and ROMMON

ROMMON uses TFTP to download an image and launch it. TFTP does not address network issues such as latency or error recovery. It does implement a limited packet integrity check so that packets arriving in sequence with the correct integrity value have an extremely low probability of error. But TFTP does not offer pipelining so the total transfer time is equal to the number of packets to be transferred times the network average RTT. Because of this limitation, we recommend that the TFTP server be located on the same LAN segment as the sensor. Any network with an RTT less than a 100 milliseconds should provide reliable delivery of the image.

Some TFTP servers limit the maximum file size that can be transferred to ~32 MB. Therefore, we recommend the following TFTP servers:

For Windows:

Tftpd32 version 2.0, available at:

http://tftpd32.jounin.net/

For UNIX:

Tftp-hpa series, available at:

http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/network/tftp/

The BIOS/ROMMON upgrade utility (IDS 4215-bios-5.1.7-rom-1.4.bin) upgrades the BIOS of IDS 4215 to version 5.1.7 and the ROMMON to version 1.4.

To upgrade the BIOS and ROMMON on IDS 4215, follow these steps:


Step 1 Download the BIOS ROMMON upgrade utility (IDS 4215-bios-5.1.7-rom-1.4.bin) to the TFTP root directory of a TFTP server that is accessible from IDS 4215.


Note Make sure you can access the TFTP server location from the network connected to the Ethernet port of IDS 4215.


Step 2 Boot IDS 4215.

While rebooting, IDS 4215 runs the BIOS POST. After the completion of POST, the console displays the message: Evaluating Run Options ...for about 5 seconds.

Step 3 Press Ctrl-R while this message is displayed to display the ROMMON menu.

The console display resembles the following:

CISCO SYSTEMS IDS 4215
Embedded BIOS Version 5.1.3 05/12/03 10:18:14.84

Use ? for help.
rommon>
 
   

Step 4 If necessary, change the port number used for the TFTP download:

rommon> interface port_number 
 
   

The port in use is listed just before the rommon prompt. Port 1 (default port) is being used as indicated by the text, Using 1: i82557 @ PCI(bus:0 dev:14 irq:11), MAC: 0000.c0ff.ee01.


Note Ports 0 (monitoring port) and 1 (command and control port) are labeled on the back of the chassis.


Step 5 Specify an IP address for the local port on IDS 4215:

rommon> address ip_address
 
   

Note Use the same IP address that is assigned to IDS 4215.


Step 6 Specify the TFTP server IP address:

rommon> server ip_address
 
   

Step 7 Specify the gateway IP address:

rommon> gateway ip_address
 
   

Step 8 Verify that you have access to the TFTP server by pinging it from the local Ethernet port:

rommon> ping server_ip_address
rommon> ping server
 
   

Step 9 Specify the filename on the TFTP file server from which you are downloading the image:

rommon> file filename
 
   

Example:

rommon> file IDS 4215-bios-5.1.7-rom-1.4.bin
 
   

Note The syntax of the file location depends on the type of TFTP server used. Contact your system or network administrator for the appropriate syntax if the above format does not work.


Step 10 Download and run the update utility:

rommon> tftp
 
   

Step 11 Enter y at the upgrade prompt and the update is executed.

IDS 4215 reboots when the update is complete.


Caution Do not remove power to IDS 4215 during the update process, otherwise the upgrade can get corrupted. If this occurs, IDS 4215 will be unusable and require an RMA.
