How can a PAR file be imported at the command line interface?


 
Solution:

Copy the PAR file onto a floppy disk (MS-DOS® formatted) or a USB flashdisk and proceed as follows to import it into the box:

 

Using a floppy disk:

1. Insert the disk into the floppy drive of the box and mount it:

  mount /mnt/floppy

 

2. Copy the PAR file onto the box:

  cp /mnt/floppy/box.par /opt/phion/update/box.par  

 

3. Unmount the floppy disk and remove it from the drive:
  umount /mnt/floppy

 

4. Activate the PAR file with the following commands:

  /etc/rc.d/init.d/phion stop
  /etc/rc.d/init.d/phion start
 

   

    or reboot the box
  reboot

 

 

Using a USB flashdisk:

1. Plugin the USB flashdisk into the box and mount it:

  mkdir /mnt/usb

  mount /mnt/usb

 

2. Copy the PAR file onto the box:

  cp /mnt/usb/box.par /opt/phion/update/box.par  

 

3. Unmount the USB flashdisk and remove it from the box:
  umount /mnt/usb

 

4. Activate the PAR file with the following commands:

  /etc/rc.d/init.d/phion stop
  /etc/rc.d/init.d/phion start
 

   

    or reboot the box
  reboot

 

Note:

In release 4.2.x it was needed to load the usb-storage driver manually. Please refer for this to article https://campus.barracuda.com/solution/50160000000IKYPAA4

 

 

Attention:
The PAR file must be named "box.par"!
