FW update on 4/8 SAN Switch

Hi,

my first time to update a SAN Switch 4/8. Is it true to update from 5.1.0b needs several FW steps( 5.1.0b to 5.3.2 then to 6.0 and 6.2.2) ? If this is true where can I download the older FW updates? On the HP Website I see only the last version 6.2.2f.

Thanks!

Hi Werner

 

Unfortunately it's true, you can only jump between revision from set firmware levels.   For example to get to the latest version starting from 5.0.1b you would need to complete the following

 

5.0.1d -> 5.2.3 -> 5.3.2c -> 6.0.1a -> 6.1.2c -> 6.2.2f

 

These are called FOS Target paths, more info can be found here.  http://community.brocade.com/docs/DOC-3133

 

Firmware for your switch can be found here :- http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=1143867&...

 

If you search for Interim FOS on that page it should give you the following link

 

ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software12/COL22074/co-86832-6/FOS-Drawer_Statement.htm

 

From here you can download the versions needed.

 

Thanks

Hi Support!

 

Thanks! The first Update was successful (5.1.0b to 5.2.3) But from 5.2.3 to 5.3.2c  I get the error that release.plist not is valid. Do I need the version 5.3.1a? If yes, I did not found the download path for this.

Re: FEW update on 4/8 SAN Switch

Hi Werner

 

You shouldn't need to upgrade to 5.3.1a.  I'd suggest downloading the 5.3.2c . image again in case it became corrupt.  This error can also occur when an incorrect image path is entered.  Are you upgrading the firmware using the Web GUI or via the command line?  When prompted for the f/w path make sure you've entered the correct path.

 

e.g. /ftproot/5.3.2c/

 

Thanks
