Cannot upgrade DS 5100B from 6.3.2e to 6.4.x as part of upgrade to 7.0.2c

Hi @all,

 

I've trying to upgrade two DS 5100B-switches  from 6.3.2e to 6.4.0 or 6.4.3h as part to the upgrade to version 7.0.2c. I am using the Brocade BNA. upgrade from v6.3.0 to 6.3.2e was successfully complete but whatever I try - upgrade to 6.4.x fails.

 

regards

Henry

Hi,

 

can you please try the upgrade via CLI and post the output of the failed reason?

Hi,

 

is it possible that you try to upgrade via SCP?

 

If so, please try FTP. There is a known issue at that code stream.
