VxWorks boot procedure (hadsc1 and e7had2)

The manual boot procedure of the VxWorks is described here (very old manual)

The important part of the manual:

Before booting VxWorks, you must set the configuration parameters for the boot, including the host and target network addresses, the file to be booted and so on:

  • Connect a terminal ( or a terminal server line) to the console port of the target board.
  • Power up the crate or reset the board.
  • If the board attempts to boot automatically, it is already set up. In this case interrupt the wait for boot by typing a character at the terminal. The board should show the boot prompt:
  • [VxWorks Boot]:
  • Type p at the prompt. A display with the current settings should be shown.
  • To change the boot parameters, type c at the prompt and answer the questions:
      prompt             answer       explanation<br>
