SAN Switch 200E FOS Upgrade From v5.2.1b to v5.3.0 Question-2

  • 1.  SAN Switch 200E FOS Upgrade From v5.2.1b to v5.3.0 Question-2

    Posted 10-05-2014 12:52 PM

    I need to make a Upgrade in a SW 200E from v5.2.1b to v5.3.0.

     

    I have read in the Release Notes v5.3.0 this:

     

    "In addition, prior to upgrading to v5.3.0 Device-based routing must not be in use, otherwise the upgrade will fail.

     

    You can use the aptPolicy command to verify the routing policy."

     

    I have executed this command and the results:

     

     

    SAN_IBM_SW1:admin> aptpolicy
     Current Policy: 3

     

     3: Default Policy
     1: Port Based Routing Policy
     3: Exchange Based Routing Policy
    SAN_IBM_SW1:admin>

     

    I dont see Device-based routing , I see Port-Based Routing and Exchange-Based Routing.

     

    Is ready for the upgrade?

     

    Could anyone help me?

     

    And if not too much trouble could someone explain which is device-based routing and Why is not in the command options?

     

    Thanks a Lot.

    Hi,

     

    Yes, the switch is ready for the upgrade because it is using Exchange Based Routing.

     

    On the other hand, the definition of Device based routing is:

     

    device-based routing, in which the choice of routing path is based on the Fibre Channel addresses of the source device (S_ID) and the destination device (D_ID), improving path utilization for better performance

     

    And it seems that it is no longer used since FOS 5.

     

    Rgds,

    Felipon
