Manual page for EEPROM(8S)

eeprom - EEPROM display and load utility

SYNOPSIS

SUN-3, SUN-4 SYSTEMS

eeprom [-] [-c] [-i] [-f device ] [field[=value] ...]

Desktop SPARCsystems, SPARCsystem 600MP SERIES

eeprom [-] [-f device ] [field[=value] ...]

DESCRIPTION

eeprom displays or changes the values of fields in the EEPROM. It processes fields in the order given. When processing a field accompanied by a value, eeprom makes the indicated alteration to the EEPROM; otherwise it displays the field's value. When given no field specifiers, eeprom displays the values of all EEPROM fields. A `-' flag specifies that fields and values are to be read from the standard input (one field or field=value per line).

Only the super-user may alter the EEPROM contents.

eeprom verifies the EEPROM checksums and complains if they are incorrect; if the -i flag is specified, erroneous checksums are ignored. If the -c flag is specified, all incorrect checksums are recomputed and corrected in the EEPROM.

OPTIONS

-c
Correct bad checksums. (Ignored on Desktop SPARCsystems and SPARCsystem 600MP series.)
-i
Ignore bad checksums. (Ignored on Desktop SPARCsystems and SPARCsystem 600MP series.)
-f device
Use device as the EEPROM device.

FIELDS and VALUES

SUN-3, SUN-4 SYSTEMS

true or false
default_boot
true or false
bootdev
charchar(hex-int,hex-int,hex-int) (with char a character, and hex-int a hexadecimal integer.)
kbdtype
8 bit integer (0 for all Sun keyboards)
keyclick
true or false
console
b&w or ttya or ttyb or color
custom_logo
true or false
banner
banner string

true or false
ttyb_no_rtsdtr
true or false
ttya_use_baud
true or false
ttyb_use_baud
true or false
ttya_baud
baud rate (16-bit decimal integer)
ttyb_baud
baud rate (16-bit decimal integer)
columns
number of columns on screen (8-bit integer)
rows
number of rows on screen (8-bit integer)
secure
none, command, or full. If secure=none the PROM monitor runs in the non-secure mode. In this mode all PROM monitor commands are allowed with no password required. If secure=command the PROM monitor is in the command secure mode. In this mode, only the b (boot) command with no parameters and the c (continue) command with no parameters may be entered without a password being required. Any other command requires that the PROM monitor password be entered. If secure=full the PROM monitor is in the fully secure mode. In this mode, only the c (continue) command with no parameters may be entered without a password being required. Entry of any other command requires that the PROM monitor password be entered. Note: the system will not auto-reboot in fully secure mode. The PROM monitor password must be entered before the boot process will take place. When changing the security mode from non-secure to either command secure or fully secure, eeprom prompts for the entry and re-entry of a new PROM password as in the passwd.1 command. Changing from one secure mode to the other secure mode, or to the non-secure mode does not prompt for a password. Changing to non-secure mode erases the password.
bad_login
number of bad login tries (16-bit unsigned integer, 0 if reset). The field bad_login maintains the count of bad login tries. It may be reset to zero (0) by specifying bad_login=reset.
password
PROM monitor password (8-bytes). The content of the password field is never displayed to any user. If the security mode is not none, the super-user may change the PROM monitor password by entering:
example# eeprom password=

eeprom prompts for a new password to be entered and re-entered.
