16.7 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

Specifies an output file to log the status of the update.

updatefile file

Specifies a file containing the path to the firmware.

i

Installs the firmware on the units. To install the firmware, you must also specify the updatefile option.

v

Lists the firmware versions.

h

Displays help information. This is the default if no arguments are specified.
