Using biosconfig to Update the BIOS 27
Set the First Boot Device for the Next Boot Change the boot order using biosconfig . This manipulates the contents of CMOS and the BIOS boot block structures stored in NVRAM, which is a dedicated part of the BIOS ROM. This chapter contains instructions for changing the boot order using biosconfig . Note - This boot list changes dynamically when devices such as disk drives, USB devices, and PCIe cards are installed and removed. The boot list also changes when javaConsole floppy and CD redirection is started and stopped. Set the First Boot Device for the Next Boot This procedure shows how to set the first boot device for the next boot only. To change the boot device for successive boots, see “Make a Persistent Change to Boot Order” on page 29 . Here is an example of using the - set_boot_override command that specifies the first boot device as the PXE server on only the next boot: 1. To create an XML file containing the current boot order of your system, type: # biosconfig -get_boot_order filename .xml 2. Edit XML text so that the device that you want to boot first is between the <FIRST> tags. In this example, the PXE device is the first boot device. The following is an example of the resulting XML file. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <BIOSCONFIG> <BIOSCONFIG_VERSION>2.1</BIOSCONFIG_VERSION> <SPEC_VERSION>2.4</SPEC_VERSION> <SP_NETWORK_CONFIG> <DISCOVERY></DISCOVERY> <IP></IP> <NETMASK></NETMASK> <GATEWAY></GATEWAY> </SP_NETWORK_CONFIG> <PASSWORD_CONFIG> <PASSWORD></PASSWORD> </PASSWORD_CONFIG> <BOOT_ORDER_OVERRIDE> <HELP_STRING>FIRST=Choose one of: pxe, cdrom, disk, 28 Oracle Server CLI Tools for Oracle Solaris 11.4 User's Guide • February 2019
