We changed the IP addresses for our switches a month ago. A few days before we were slated to upgrade our 12000 to 4.4.0f, I discovered I could not telnet to my Standby CP ip address, although it returns ping. The Active CP and the two logical switch (sw0 and sw1) ip addresses returns ping and responds to telnet. I asked HP whether this is an expected behavior for this switch and fw level. They do not know for sure. I asked them whether this would impact my firmware upgrade, since the firmwaredownload process does update the standby CP first. HP said this should have no impact at all. But we did encounter issues "v4.4.0f/release.plist" is not getting to the release.plist file, still HP thinks this is not connected. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
