TECHNICAL SUPPORT NOTE
Total Access 612/616/624 ATM Upgrade Procedure
Introduction
As features are added to the TA612/616/624, software upgrades may be necessary. The
TA612/616/624 has flash memory allowing the software to be upgraded from a file provided by
ADTRAN. The current version of the software can be found in the "System Info" menu.
The software can be upgraded using HyperTerminal, or any terminal emulation package supporting the
XMODEM protocol. It can also be upgraded using TFTP and a TFTP server. Please proceed to the
appropriate section for further instruction.
If a terminal emulation package other than HyperTerminal is selected, please see the instructions
supplied with the package to set up an XMODEM connection.
Attention: This code is based off the D.01 development tree. The purpose is to convert D.01
configuration to D.04 configuration, so that when a user upgrades from D.01 code to D.04 code the
configuration will not be lost.
TO UPGRADE FROM D.01 TO D.04 WITHOUT LOSING
CONFIGURATION
Save the D.01 configuration either to a *.cfg file (under Config
Transfer) or to a text file using the terminal mode "download"
command. This is a safeguard only and is not necessary for
successful D.01 to D.04 upgrade. This file will be useful if ever the
need arises to go back to D.01 code.
Load (via TFTP or XMODEM) D.01.90 code. Unit will reset.
Load (via TFTP or XMODEM) D.04.xx code. You are now running
version D.04.xx
TO UPGRADE FROM D.01 TO D.04 WITH FACTORY DEFAULTS
If you don't care about saving your configuration, there is no need to load
the transition (D.01.90) code. Simply load D.04.xx code.
After the code has loaded, remove power from the unit. Make sure
you have a serial console session open and are connected to the
craft port.
Now plug the unit back in and press the "F" key as the unit powers
up. This will cause the unit to factory default all options.
Note: If, while running the transition code (D.01.90) you make any changes to the configuration, you
must RESET the IAD in order for those changes to be successfully migrated to D.04. Then you may
continue with the upgrade process and load D.04.xx.
Note: When upgrading from one D.04.xx firmware to another D.04.xx firmware, there is no need to use
the D.03.90 firmware. This will cause a loss of configuration.
