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 PolicySAN_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.
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.
