Firmware Update - check for updates
ITDT-GE can Check for Device Updates for IBM® tape drives and IBM tape libraries. You can choose to select either one device or all devices by selecting the corresponding option from the drop down menu under Update in the ITDT Control Center.
In the sample above, the drive has two FixCentral components. Each component has several items; such as code files and textual meta information.
The code files (binary files) have a "+" in the icon to distinguish and can be downloaded either by double-clicking or by using the right mouse button. The text files (for example, readme files) can be viewed in the same way. A separate Test Tab is opened and the information shown.
- GREEN: the code level is newer than the one of the drive.
- RED: the code level is older than the one of the drive.
- BLUE: the code level is the same as the one of the drive.
