Hi all, i just got the new 300 SAN Switches and i was looking at this doc to upgrade my firmaware
but i get
The server is inaccessible or firmware path is invalid. Please make sure the server name or IP address, the user/password and the firmware path are valid
here is my login setup
IP 10.15.15.xxx - same subnet as the switch
User name username
Protocol type FTP
Firmware path v6.3.2e/release.plist
i get the same error via command line/putty
ummm, what? when i try ftp manually via filezilla client for example, it works perfect...
let me know if i missed something

perhaps your ftp-server has some logs that you can look at and see what is happening?
Perhaps it says path not found.
Did you try /v6.3.2e or other paths without the release.plist? Make sure a folder called v6.3.2e is available in the root of the ftp-account you're connecting with. Firewalls etc may also hinder this process.
The Fabric OS Administrator's Guide has a section about maintaining firmware.

good idea, once i looked at the ftp logs it became clear that the switch is reading the correct file that points the switch to another location, so now i understand how this works. thanks!
