config update

Updates the Lantronix Local Manager's operating system to another version.

This command copies the file from the remote file system, executes an integrity checksum, migrates the data to the new database, installs it; then restarts the system on the new version. If the system cannot start after the update, the software version that shipped on the chassis will be loaded.

The USB option is only available when a USB flash drive is connected to the system. The binary file needs to be available from the flash drive.

config update usb LantronixOS-

You can also specify files in subfolders this way:

config update usb upgrade_files/LantronixOS-

Note: Lantronix recommends using a 1 GB FAT16 formatted USB flash drive. Upgrading the system from a FAT32 formatted flash drive may keep the Local Manager from restarting after the upgrade.

The update may be retrieved from the Lantronix Control Center using the config update UCC / syntax, if the file has previously been added to the Lantronix Control Center's file archive in the category specified by the command.

From the Control Center

Schedule > Scheduled Tasks - all system that match the selected filter
