Newest firmware for FIxGMR4 on a FastIron 1500

Hi!

 

        I have a FIxGMR4 on a FastIron 1500 and I was wondering what was the latest firmware that was released for this model. Is version 08.0.30j working on this management module?

 

Thanks a lot!

@CIUSSS MCQ

 

FI 400, 800 and 1500 series are very old Platforms, and I believe was running on B2Sxxxx and B2Rxxxx Image code, which is not compatible with ICX Firmware Image.

Thanks a lot Antonio!

 

         You're right, they are very old platform, I was hoping to find the latest firmware for those. I have version 07.8.01dT53 (B2R07801d.bin) installed, but it doesn't support MSTP and LLDP which we absolutely need for our project. Do you think I can find those firmware files somewhere, I read there was a version 08.x.x.x that have those features? 

 

Thanks a lot for your time!

Hi Marc,

 

I believe this platform end/was supported till microcode 08.0.01 0r 02 ??

 

neither FW nor Release Notes is available for download, so I'm very sorry I don't know if the features are supported in 8.x Release.

 

If I find more info about you request, I'll coming back.

Marc,

 

just check my 5 MIO Files, and found a Release Notes for 8.0.00 is attached here.

 

MSTP show in this Release as Supported.

 

I've archieved last years more TB of old Firmware, Microcode and much more, - must review my backup catalogs- is most probable I've such old Image, but unfortunately I cannot at the moment recovery this backup.

Thanks Antonio!

 

          I've seen in this dicussion a reference to version 08.0.01v :

          Filename for the firmware is B2R08001v.bin, but I don't know if there's anything more recent than that. Anything in the 08.x.x version would do I think. Once again I am very grateful for the time you are taking to look into this!

 

Have a great day!

Hi Antonio,

 

         08.0.01p would do just fine, I can get around LLDP, but MSTP is a must. Let me know if you can send me the image, I would be very grateful!

 

Thanks!

Hi Marc,

 

->Let me know if you can send me the image, I would be very grateful!

 

I'm very sorry but unfortunately I cannot share any FW Image.

 

Apart of that, - even if i wanted to do that -  I don't have at the moment access to my Backup for a simple reason I'm on Trip in Germany, and I've the backup in Italy.
