from Huawei command line – “check …”

Huawei NE40E-X8Very useful command, especially when you are preparing and executing upgrade of a software of Huawei carrier class devices, like NE40E and CX600. Let’s look what can be checked by this command:

<labnario>check ?
  hardware-compatibility  hardware compatibility
  startup                 Check the version of the resource file
  system-software         system-software
  version                 check version

I personally use “check hardware-compatibility” before all planned upgrades. During a preparation phase of an upgrade, you have to read software release notes, to be sure that all software and hardware components will be compatible with the new software. You can check hardware compatibility by the command, instead of searching software documents.

Imagine that you’ve just uploaded a new software to CFcard of a router. The new software is v600r006c00spc300.

<labnario>check hardware-compatibility v600r006c00spc300.cc
Slot#    BoardType        Result           Detail

3        CR57LAXFB00      Compatible       NA
4        CR57LAXFB00      Compatible       NA
5        CR57EMGFB20      Compatible       NA
6        CR57EMGFB20      Compatible       NA
9        CR57SRU200A5     Compatible       NA
10       CR57SRU200A5     Compatible       NA
11       CR57SFU200C0     Compatible       NA
12       FRA200A          Compatible       NA
13       FRA200A          Compatible       NA

It’s very simple, isn’t it?

A second useful command before upgrade:

<labnario>check startup next
Main board:
Check startup software.......ok
Check configuration file.....ok
Check PAF....................ok
Check License................ok
Check Patch..................ok
PAF is fitted with startup software
License is fitted with startup software
Patch is fitted with startup software
Slave board:
Check startup software.......ok
Check configuration file.....ok
Check PAF....................ok
Check License................ok
Check Patch..................ok
PAF is fitted with startup software
License is fitted with startup software
Patch is fitted with startup software
Startup software in slave board is fitted with main board.

By this command we can check whether the next startup software is set properly.

Let’s look at the remaining options:

<labnario>check system-software v600r006c00spc300.cc
Info: Prepare to check system software cfcard:/v600r006c00spc300.cc, please wait..........
..........................................................................................
...................
Info: System software CRC check OK!

<labnario>check version cfcard:/v600r006c00spc300.cc
Info: Software version match Ok!

I think these options don’t need any explanation.

You have to remember that this command is available from “user-view“.
