Re: FOS Upgradation with DCFM

Yes you can use DCFM to update the switches.

You have to download the zip or gz files from your support vendor. After that import the images into DCFM.

Last step is the update procedure.

Before you start read the release notes. You will find dependencies or recommendations how to proceed.

I hope this helps,
