I'm preparing for a firmware upgrade on our 48000's. A while back both encountered an out of memory condition (I think) and failed over to the other CP. The current CP state is:
Local CP (Slot 6, CP1): Active, Warm Recovered
Remote CP (Slot 5, CP0): Standby, Healthy
HA enabled, Heartbeat Up, HA State synchronized
Can I perform a fabric OS upgrade with the active CP in a "Warm Recovered" state, or does it first need to be in a "Healthy" state. If it needs to be Healthy, how do I get it in that state ?

this issue must have other reason, output from hashow, show fine.
check if any dump is available and remove, and check errshow for some other details.

Thanks. I'm not too worried about why the fail-over occurred. We're at 5.3.2c, and might have encountered a defect that is fixed in a newer release. I have all the firmware files downloaded to get up to V6.4.3 (one level at a time) and just want to verify that it's OK to start a firmware update to a CP that's in a "Warm Recovered" state.

yes that is ok.
when you start firmwaredownload command, the procedure perform first the secondary partition on standby CP, and standby CP show ok.
which FOS release you want to use for first Upgrade from 5.3 to 6.0 ?

Since Brocade recommends only one level at a time under 6.X, my plan was:
5.3.2c (current level)
I think that's the highest supported level for a 48000
