Expect-based Firmware download script for the Brocade 2x switches. This basic expect script will telnet into a switch, enter in username and password, and initiate a firmware download for that switch. It requires a working ftp server, which contains the 2x firmware.


Operating System n/a

Interface Expect script, telnet, ftp server

Fabric Operating System n/a

Other n/a



Expect needs to be installed. You can download it from ActiveState or use the expect installed with Solaris or Linux. You must not be logged into the switch through telnet, or the script will fail.
