We are upgrading a system to SV6.0.2. The existing system has CI840 cards on it. The 6.0.2 system release notes mentions CI840 compatible firmware is label or version number 3.0/2 or later.
How do I find out what is the firmware version number for CI840 cards installed on site ? Is it written on the card or can it be read from control builder. We do not have work permit to remove the cards.
The current system is SV5.0 SP1 RU3.
Looking for any help or advise on this.
CI840 firmware can not be seen anywhere in CBM or on the card. You need to have TK212 cable and Hyperterminal connected. Reboot CI840 and during reboot it will publish its Firmware version on hyperterminal. Order this cable as you would need it for frequent CI840 firmware upgrades in future.
Otherway around is using CI840 DTM to view the firmware version, but not sure if you have DTM/device management setup in your system.
