Brocade 300 invalid rpm

    So today I tried to upgrade the "new" brocade 300 i got.

    Its running Version 6.2.0d and I downloaded every step to get it to 7.4.2d

    First step should be 6.3.0d but it keeps saying

     

    Firmware download failed - Invalid RPM package. Please reload firmware packages on the source device. (0x2e)

    2018/01/25-02:25:34, [SULB-1011], 75, CHASSIS, INFO, Brocade300, Firmwaredownload command failed. Invalid RPM package. Please reload firmware packages on the source device.

    Aborting firmwaredownload now.

     

    I double checked the firmware but everything seems ok. The ftp server is reachable. I tested the ftp and everything else.

    I even checked other OEM firmware. IBM Assist and Dell Assist (it should be Dell but firmware seems the same.)

     

    to verify the firmware ive updated my other brocade 300 with firmware from the source and it works easily.

    Hello,

     

    try this:

     

    1. Login as root
    2. navigate to cd /var/log  
    3. cat fwdl.log

    Try to check if there is something interesting.

    There is no fwdl.log in /var/log.

     

    v6.3.2e, v6.3.2d and v6.3.2a have not worked. Still invalid rpm.

    --->>>First step should be 6.3.0d......

     

    if you are current on v6.2.x, the correct upgrade path is v6.3.2d
