Question
Is it necessary to reboot after running "install firmware"?
Environment
  • BlackDiamond 8800
  • EXOS
Answer
The PSU controller firmware is used immediately after it is installed without rebooting the switch. The new BootROM and firmware overwrite the older versions flashed into the hardware. Use the "reboot" command to reboot the switch and activate the new BootROM and firmware for the MSM and I/O modules.
Additional notes
Rebooting is necessary in order to activate the newly installed firmware.
