NAME

rbootseq - Persistently sets the order of boot devices for BladeCenter blades or PPC LPARs using Direct FSP Management (DFM).


SYNOPSIS

rbootseq [-h|--help|-v|--version]

Blade specific:

rbootseq noderange {hd0|hd1|hd2|hd3|net|iscsi|iscsicrit|cdrom|usbflash|floppy|none|list|stat},...

HP Blade specific:

rbootseq noderange {hd|net1|net2|net3|net4|cdrom|usbflash|floppy|none},...

PPC (using Direct FSP Management) specific:

rbootseq noderange [hfi|net]


DESCRIPTION

For Blade specific:

rbootseq sets the boot sequence (the order in which boot devices should be tried) for the specified blades. Up to four different medium/devices can be listed, separated by commas. The boot sequence will remain in effect for these blades until set differently.

For PPC (using Direct FSP Management) specific:

rbootseq sets the ethernet (net) or hfi device as the first boot device for the specified PPC LPARs. The rbootseq command requires that the ethernet or hfi mac address is stored in the mac table, and that the network information is correct in the networks table.
