Upgrading Brocade 300 to FABOS 6.2.2

hi,

i've got a brocade 300 and have downloaded the 6.2.2 FABOS.

since my usb stick doesn't mount i installed a simple FTP server and put the files there.

the FTP server works and i can manually log in from a remote machine.

when starting firmware download via java interface i am constantly getting that

either the login in incorrect, serverdata is incorrect or firmware path is invalid.

in the log i do see that the switch CWDs to SWBD71 so login and serverdata should

be ok. in this directory are loads of files so the firmware should at least be downloaded

fully (win zip version).

any suggestions / experiences what went wrong?

regards

kai

for USB you need first to active amount the USB from a switch Command Line.

for detais see the command reference manuals.

when you use a FTP, you need first to config correct the FTP server, switch must be in the same IP address.

startpoint for firmware downlaod is as example you ftpserver /v6.2.2/release.plist

you must unzipp the file in the FTP root.

Re: Upgrading Brocade 300 to FABOS 6.2.2

hi,

my usb stick cant be mounted.

ftp FABOS zip was unzipped in the FTP root.

release.plist lies in the SWBD71 directory


shall i move this file to FTP root?

it was unzipped within the SWBD71 directory.

IP connection between switch and ftp server is correct and working. otherwise i wouldn't see logins from the switch.

SW300-Brocade2:admin> firmwaredownload
Server Name or IP Address: 172.16.80.111
User Name: ftp
File Name: release.plist
Network Protocol(1-auto-select, 2-FTP, 3-SCP) : 2
Password:
Checking system settings for firmwaredownload...
Server IP: 172.16.80.111, Protocol IPv4
Firmware access timeout.
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.

the whole firmware unzipped lies in the ftp root now.

i've tried various paths. same behavior on the console as well as via java interface.

i do see CWDs at the FTP server but no file transfer. the transfer itself works. i've tested it.


no clue whats wrong here ...

Re: Upgrading Brocade 300 to FABOS 6.2.2

is the brocade in teh same IP strange ? example 172.16.80.200

what is the FTP root name ?

is the FTP pointed in correct root/folder ?

the file are unzipped in the root is correct ?

again, if the FTP is pointed as example to Folder /Brocade you need to start as "/v6.2.2/release.plist" and not

File Name: release.plist

if the ftp is pinted direct in the folder /v6.2.2 you need to start as "/release.plist"

Re: Upgrading Brocade 300 to FABOS 6.2.2

brocade has 172.16.80.101/24

i've put /v6.2.2 now into root - no change

SW300-Brocade2:admin> firmwaredownload -s
Server Name or IP Address: 172.16.80.111
User Name: ftp
File Name: /v6.2.2/release.plist
Network Protocol(1-auto-select, 2-FTP, 3-SCP) : 2
Password:
Do Auto-Commit after Reboot :
Reboot system after download : y
Checking system settings for firmwaredownload...
Server IP: 172.16.80.111, Protocol IPv4
Firmware access timeout.
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.

the FTP path is definitly correct. when i manually ftp there is shows the correct contents (one directory named v6.2.2)

do i need write permissions for the ftp user?

--->>> The server is inaccessible...

show to me, the FTP IP in the Internet Information Server is not correct configured.

do not set assign to all, set here in the IIS the Server IP Address 172.16.80.111
