Upgrade risk assessment for 6520 and 7840 extenton

  • 1.  Upgrade risk assessment for 6520 and 7840 extenton

    Posted 04-09-2019 12:47 AM

    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?

     

    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

     

    Second:

     

    --->>>2. switches Zone DB utilization are 92% and 84%

     

    how many config have you saved ? the value reported are very strong.

     

    Finally:

     

    is not clear to me what you meaning with --->>> "....with 2 hops...." ?
