    Hi Team,

    I need performed a Firmware upgrade in a 200E Switch, but I see that the FOS is very old and I have read about the process for upgrade.

     

    Im not very sure to the step by step for the versions olders, but I need make this at the first try if is possible.

     

    IP SWITCH  10.10.10.2

     

    I have configured a FTP Server with a Shared Folder named "Temp1" and IP 10.10.10.3

     

    1º.- Put in my shared Folder (Temp1) the FOS v5.3.0

          The FOS V5.3.0 have a lot of directories and the Directory named SWBD34 is the 200E.

     

    2º.- Telnet to the Switch 200E and login.

     

    3º.- Save all configurations.

     

    4º.- firmwaredownload

          Do you want to continue [Y]: y

          Server Name or IP Address: 10.10.10.3

          Username: anonymous

     

          File Name: /Temp1/v5.3.0/SWBD34/release.plist

       ór perhaps

          File Name: /Temp1/v5.3.0/release.plist

       ór perhaps

          File Name: /Temp1/v5.3.0/install

     

          Password:

     

    could anyone help me?

     

    When I ´m on version 5.3.0, the path will be 6.2.2f:        v5.3.0  -----> v6.0.0c -----> 6.1.0a -----> 6.2.2f

     

    Thanks a lot

    danyG,

     

    you must point download command to

     

    /root_folder/v5.x.xy/release.plist

     

    and not to Sub-Folder.

     

    Then follow the Official Brocade Upgrade path procedure
