Upgrade from firmware 7.4.1a from 7.4.0 ok?

  • 1.  Upgrade from firmware 7.4.1a from 7.4.0 ok?

    Posted 02-04-2016 11:05 AM

    Silly question but I want to ensure I can upgrade my firmware from version 7.4.0 to latest 7.4.1a non-disruptively during business hours?

    Looking at the release notes for upgrade migration path it only mentions "Migrating from FOS v7.3 - Any 8G or 16G platform running any FOS v7.3.x firmware can be non-disruptively upgraded to FOS v7.4.1a."

     

    We are on version 7.4.0 currently.

    thanks.

    Short answer:  Yes.

     

    Slightly longer version:  I do these updates during changes windows, but applying the filter of:  "Will the VMWare admins even see anything in their logs when this happens?" I would answer that they won't, and so doing it during business hours would be fine.

     

    If anything, I would say that in neglecting to mention 7.4.0 to 7.4.1 under "migrating" the message is that it isn't a migration, just applying patches within the same version.  And no disruption to traffic should be expected.
