Question
Can i use WinSCP to upgrade the switch via SFTP?
Environment
  • EXOS 16.2
  • EXOS 2x.x
Answer
Yes, this is possible starting with EXOS 16.2

While in some earlier versions it is also possible to connect and to upload the firmware using SFTP, the image then cannot be installed from the location it has been uploaded to.
This feature was introduced in EXOS 16.2

The way this can be done is after the upload of the image using SFTP under WinSCP is to issue the following command: "download url file://usr/local/cfg/<filename>.xos"
