FW upgrade brocade 300 from 6.4 to 7.3

hello 

 

i have start to upgrade the FW of on 2 brocade 300 san switch , from version 6.4 to 7.3 (last one), and the process is interrupt and stack to the FW version 7.0.0.

I can't understand that why. 

 

the upgrade is done from the http://x.x.x.x/ management ip with ftp. In the first brocade everything goes ok, and fast.

In the second one , the process is interrupt to the FW 7.0.0, and the main problem remain that the network management is not able to be accessed.

i have tryied to connect with I0I0 network management , and i see that the network interface eth0 is up and runing, also the ip is not changed.

but the mac addres is not figuring when i try to connect with other network devices ( my laptot , or other switches).

Also i have tryed to upgrade the firmware to 7.3 with USB. i have used an 2Gb personal USB formated with fat default. and also this USB is not able to be enabled with "usbstorage -e".

 

please can any one help me , it looks very hard to solve.

 

thank you

Re: FW upgrade brocade 300 from 6.4 to 7.3

i can see snmpd dying. maybe unrelated.
for usb, you have to use brocade-branded usb stick.
and anyway, you can't upgrade from 7.0 to 7.3. you'll have to have a couple of intermediate steps with 7.1 and 7.2
BTW, why did you choose 7.0.0a as a 7.0 step? it was definitely a bad idea. brocade target path requires using v7.0.2c/d/e here.
