Brocade-425 firmware update


We have a 64-bit Centos 5.9 Linux server with a Brocade-425 adapter in. The firmware shows:

Flash Information:

        status:            good

        option ROM version:



        fw version:

I want to update the firmware (not the boot BIOS) and have downloaded bfa_fw_update_to_v3.1.2.1.tgz from the Brocade website which contains three .bin files.

When I run any of these I get this error:

-bash: ./ctfw- cannot execute binary file

Can anyoe help?

Re: Brocade-425 firmware update

Can you check if the file has execute permission? post `ls -lrt xxyy.bin`
