Firmware Download 'Failed'

Attempting to upgrade a 4100 from 4.4.0b to 5.0.1a using FM5.x I received first a 'Failed' status (with no messsage) and then when retrying it a 'Failed' status with 'Firmware download already in progress'.

Re: Firmware Download 'Failed'

In the absence of any other problem reporting route for this trial version ...If downloading firmware to multiple switches and one fails (in my case 'network timeout') then the last download will not get a chance to finish and will be identified as failed in the final message even though the progress status is still "In Progress". Leaving the switches and then re-checking the status after a further few minutes showed the switch that was in progress to have completed succesfuuly.
