upgrade 7.0.2.c failed

upgrade from 6.4.3.c to v7.0.2c failed


The following item(s) need to be addressed before downloading the specified firmware:

Upgrade to 7.0 is not allowed because the threshold configuration changed alarm is set for class port, area Link on FID 128.

Similar configuration may exist for other classes and areas and on other FIDs. Please use "fwconfigure" to unset the same.

what is to do

Re: upgrade 7.0.2.c failed

Basically do what the message says.


Use the fwconfigure command, go to class "Port" and area "Link" and remove any "Changed" alarms.


The upgrade should work after that.
