Upgrade software in stack.

Hi, Want to add one more question, I have already installed stack switches, and want to upgrade to software 07.2.02aT7f1 to  07.3.00cT7f1. Which is recommended by Brocade. Because my core switches are running 07.3.00cT3e3.

I gave command as followes but cannot see where it is going to copy in Active stack, Standby or member stack? Can you pleas add more info which can help me to upgrade switches around 50. Because if I start by console will be long prodedur.

FCX648SHPOE##copy tftp flash 1.1.1.1  07.3.00cT7f1 secondary

Standby u2 - No hitless failover. Reason: hitless-failover not configured

Current stack management MAC is 0024.38c4.fe40

Note: no "stack mac" config. My MAC will change after failover.

Re: Upgrade software in stack.

Hello,

every single switch has a primary and a secondary flash partition.

Your command copied the sw to the secondary partition, if it was successful. You can check so by entering:

FCX648SHPOE#show flash
