10.16 Updating multiple debug hardware units

To update multiple debug hardware units, use the dbghw_batchupdater command line utility.

The command line utility, dbghw_batchupdater, enables you to:
  • Install firmware on a group of DSTREAM or RVI units.
  • View the firmware versions on a group of DSTREAM or RVI units.
The input to dbghw_batchupdater is a file containing a list of DSTREAM or RVI units. Each line in the input file is a string that specifies a single DSTREAM or RVI connection. Firmware images are available within a subdirectory of the DS-5 installation.

Syntax

dbghw_batchupdater -list file [-option]...
Where:
list file
Specifies the file containing a list of DSTREAM or RVI connection strings.
option:
log file

i

v
Lists the firmware versions.
h
Displays help information. This is the default if no arguments are specified.
