Running the AFU from the Command Line

Note: You can also run a menu-based AFU (see Running the Menu-based AFU).

To run the AFU from the command line:

  1. Shut down your operating system and reboot to DOS from a bootable DOS floppy disk or from a DOS partition on a bootable drive. (You can use a disk connected to the controller you're updating.) If your computer isn't set up to boot from the bootable floppy disk, enter the system setup utility to change the setting.
  2. Insert the firmware update disk containing AFU.exe.
  3. At the DOS command, type AFU followed by a command (see AFU Commands) and any switches you want.
    Note: To find a controller number, type AFU LIST, then press Enter.
    The AFU processes the command and reports either success or an error message code.
To update a RAID controller's flash using the command line utility ARCCONF, see Updating the Flash using the AFU Command Line.
