Loads flash EPROM and reboots the system.
feprom_update [ -f ] FileName
Attention: Do not use this command when the system is running with more than one user.
The feprom_update command loads the system's flash EPROM with the specified file, which must contain a valid binary flash EPROM image, and then reboots the system. The file name can also be the device name for the diskette drive containing the flash EPROM image.
By default, the feprom_update command warns that the system will be rebooted, and asks for confirmation before proceeding. If the -f flag is given, this warning is not given; the flash EPROM is updated and the system is rebooted without asking for confirmation.
The system must be in service mode and single-user root mode when the feprom_update command is run.
Note: The feprom_update command works only on multiprocessor systems with Micro Channel I/O. For IBM systems, this includes the IBM 7012 Model G Series, the IBM 7013 Model J Series, and the IBM 7015 Model R Series.
