Ultra 60 and Sunblade 2000 OpenPROM upgrades

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by Captain Pugwash, Nov 5, 2010.

  1. Hi!

    I have just got an Ultra 60 and a Sunblade 2000, both need an OpenPROM
    upgrade. Unfortunately, not being a Sun^WOracle<spit!> customer, I am
    unable to obtain the OpenPROM upgrades from their website without
    committing to a costly service plan, are there any alternative means to
    obtaining those OpenPROM upgrades for my Sun hardware?

    Many thanks!

  2. HI,

    What is the problem with the current Openboot version on these boxes?

  3. PCI isn't working correctly on my 'Blade so it needs OpenPROM upgrade.
    Also, my Ultra 60 isn't quite up to date so needs the same.

    If there is a way to get those OpenPROM flash updates from Sun^WOracle
    without an hefty support plan, I'd be grateful.

  4. Hi,

    I don't have any flash images for your Blade sadly, whats wrong with the
    PCI bus that you think a new version will fix or where have you got that
    info from?
    If it aint broken, don't fix it!! You should avoid firmware updates
    unless you have a problem!
    Havent got a clue sadly.

    Probably now people start to understand what a fantastic company Sun
    was, at that time Sun was a bad guy compared to homemakers and now... :)

  5. From Sunsolve's site. Basically my Matrox card won't play nicely with
    the XVR-500 card in the 'Blade. Looking at the site mentioned that a
    flash upgrade might fix that issue.
    Good advice generally but I just like my machines to have the most up to
    date PROMs.
    Oracle... *sigh* At least they're still supporting Java.

    Don't know if this is still required but I had the same need for m
    Ultar-60 and I was able to find this outside Oracle on a Sun mirror.
    Google for "SUN patch 106455-11" You should find it
