SLX 9850 Upgrade Process (SLXOS)

Having a hell of a time upgrading to SLXOS 17r.1.01 from 16r.1.01.

Followed the manual to the letter - tried TFTP, SCP, SFTP

tcpdump on a TFTP "firmware download" shows *.deb packages being installed.


Afterward nothing happens.  Coldboot doesn't reboot the system.  "firmware commit | activate" does absolutely nothing.


Is there any way I can get more visibility into what is going on during an upgrade process other than the paucity of info provided by "show firmwaredownloadstatus"?


Thanks in advance!
