we are planning to upgrade our switch 6520 and extenssion 7480 with 2 hops for non-disruptive. from 7.4.1d >> 8.0.2b (1st hop) >> 8.1.2d (target)
as preparation, have few questions:
1. is the hop versions recommendable?
2. switches Zone DB utilization are 92% and 84%. since will upgrade 2 hops, will it increase the DB usage after upgrade?
3. if in case we need to rollback, will the DB utilization a threat?
4.overall recommendation, can we proceed with that DB utilization thresh hold?
any comments is welcome. thanks!
FIRST AT ALL!!!!
--->>>>from 7.4.1d >> 8.0.2b
if the 7840 Ext. is configured as FCIP, FOS v8.0.2b is due a performance issue absolutely NO GO!
instead you have to use the package v8.0.2b2
--->>>2. switches Zone DB utilization are 92% and 84%
how many config have you saved ? the value reported are very strong.
is not clear to me what you meaning with --->>> "....with 2 hops...." ?
