Clear the OCP Firmware Update History Log


nvme ocp clear-fw-activate-history <device> [--no-uuid | -n]


For the NVMe device given, Clear OCP Firmware Update History Log.

The <device> parameter is mandatory and may be either the NVMe character device (ex: /dev/nvme0) or block device (ex: /dev/nvme0n1).

This command with no option added, will try to automatically detect the parameters of the command. This will work successfully or fail gracefully for devices supporting UUID for Vendor Specific Information (NVMe 1.4 or later, OCP 2.0 requires NVMe 1.4b). For devices that do not support OCP 2.0 the command will fail gracefully, unless the --no-uuid option is provided.

For OCP 1.0 devices (before NVMe 1.4) the --no-uuid option is required. When --no-uuid option is provided, results for devices before NVMe 1.4 without OCP support are undefined.

On success it returns 0, error code otherwise.


-n, ā€‰--no-uuid

Do not try to automatically detect UUID index for this command (required for old OCP 1.0 support)
