readraw command

Use the readraw command to read raw CMOS data and save it in a file to use on other systems by using the writeraw command. This command is for BIOS-based servers only.


The syntax of the redraw command is
asu readraw filename [-nx]

filename is the name of a file to which the raw CMOS data is saved.

Note: If the optional -nx parameter is specified, the ASU performs the operation for node x, where x is the selected node in a multi-node system. Node x can be a number from 1 through 8. If the -nx parameter is not specified, the operation is performed on the primary node (node 1).


The output of the readraw command is a message that indicates that the raw read operation is completed.

Command line:
 asu readraw CMOSraw.dat
Raw CMOS read from CMOS, written to CMOSraw.dat
