Hi Team,

I need performed a Firmware upgrade in a 200E Switch, but I see that the FOS is very old and I have read about the process for upgrade.

 

Im not very sure to the step by step for the versions olders, but I need make this at the first try if is possible.

 

IP SWITCH  10.10.10.2

 

I have configured a FTP Server with a Shared Folder named "Temp1" and IP 10.10.10.3

 

1º.- Put in my shared Folder (Temp1) the FOS v5.3.0

      The FOS V5.3.0 have a lot of directories and the Directory named SWBD34 is the 200E.

 

2º.- Telnet to the Switch 200E and login.

 

3º.- Save all configurations.

 

4º.- firmwaredownload

      Do you want to continue [Y]: y

      Server Name or IP Address: 10.10.10.3

      Username: anonymous

 

      File Name: /Temp1/v5.3.0/SWBD34/release.plist

   ór perhaps

      File Name: /Temp1/v5.3.0/release.plist

   ór perhaps

      File Name: /Temp1/v5.3.0/install

 

      Password:

 

could anyone help me?

 

When I ´m on version 5.3.0, the path will be 6.2.2f:        v5.3.0  -----> v6.0.0c -----> 6.1.0a -----> 6.2.2f

 

Thanks a lot

danyG,

 

you must point download command to

 

/root_folder/v5.x.xy/release.plist

 

and not to Sub-Folder.

 

Then follow the Official Brocade Upgrade path procedure
