NAME

ndctl-update-firmware - provides for updating the firmware on an NVDIMM  

SYNOPSIS

ndctl update-firmware <dimm> [<options>]

 

DESCRIPTION

Provide a generic interface for updating NVDIMM firmware. The use of this depends on support from the underlying libndctl, kernel, as well as the platform itself.  

OPTIONS

<dimm>

A nmemX device name, or a dimm id number. Restrict the operation to the specified dimm(s). The keyword all can be specified to indicate the lack of any restriction, however this is the same as not supplying a --dimm option at all.

-b, --bus=

A bus id number, or a provider string (e.g. "ACPI.NFIT"). Restrict the operation to the specified bus(es). The keyword all can be specified to indicate the lack of any restriction, however this is the same as not supplying a --bus option at all.

-f, --firmware

firmware file used to perform the update

-v, --verbose

Emit debug messages for the namespace check process.
