TitleHow to upgrade S,N,K, or 7100-Series firmware with or without Virtual Switch Bonding (VSB) configured
Objective
How to upgrade 7100-Series, S-Series, N-Series, K-Series firmware with or without Virtual Switch Bonding (VSB) configured
Environment
  • 7100-Series
  • S-Series
  • N-Series
  • K-Series
  • All firmware
Procedure
1. TFTP S-Series firmware image onto switch with the following command:
copy tftp://<IP_ADDRESS>/TOR-83202-0008 TOR-83202-0008
2. Create a local configuration backup file locally onto a fabric or I/O slot with the following command (Slot# is typically slot1, unless in bonded setup they will increment slot# for each unit):
show config outfile <SLOT#>/<FILENAME>
3. Copy off the configuration backup to the TFTP server:
copy <SLOT#>/<FILENAME> tftp://<IP_ADDRESS>/<FILENAME>
4. Set the newly applied firmware as the "boot" image with the following command, which will prompt for a reboot (answer "y" for yes):
7100-series(su)->set boot system TOR-83202-0008
This command can optionally reset the system to boot the new image.
Do you want to do this now (y/n) [n]? y
Additional notes
  • In a VSB setup, you can set the option to do high-availability upgrade, in which one switch will upgrade at a time with the following command:
set boot high-availability default-mode if-possible
  • To verify if the old and new images are HAU compatible, issue the command dir images and compare HAU Key rows in both images:
7100-Series(su)->dir images

  • If the HAU Key's do not match, all units must be rebooted at the same time in the VSB setup
  • Generally the HAU key will match for each revision in the same track as defined by the second two digits in the revision number:  x.NN.xx.xxxx
  • The HAU key for each revision is in the release notes
