Hi,

Can you provide the current output of firmwaredownloadstatus and firmwareshow

Thanks,

Andreas

Re: Firmware commit failed - Firmwarecommit failed. (0x1a)

The firmwarecommit is still fail because the switch is trying to match primary and secondary partition. I can't commit another versión the error is: 'another download is in progres on the switch' (conectrix manager).

Firmwaredownload error: 'Sanity check failed because firmwareDownload is already in progress' (command line)

Switch:USERID> firmwarerestore
Cannot perform firmwarerestore because either firmwarecommit is running or the secondary partition is corrupted.
Firmwarerestore failed - No firmwarerestore is needed. (0x1f)

I think >>> secondary partition is corrupted

Re: Firmware commit failed - Firmwarecommit failed. (0x1a)

I haven't check the IBM web site if this code is supported on the 4020.

Within in the release notes of 5.3.2c version 2 I was not able to find the 4020 as a supported platform.

Supported Switches

Fabric OS v5.3.0 added support for the FC10-6 blade and the FA4-18 application blade. Both blades are designed to function within Brocade 48000 director. In addition to those blades, Fabric OS v5.3.2c also supports the Brocade 200E, 3014, 3016, 3250, 3850, 3900, 4012, 4016, 4018, 4024, 4100, 4424, 4900, 5000, 7500, 7600, 24000, and 48000.

Access Gateway is also supported by Fabric OS v5.3.0, and is supported on the same embedded switches as 5.2.0. Access Gateway is also supported on the 200e beginning with 5.3.0.

I would recommend to open a service request with IBM.

Re: Firmware commit failed - Firmwarecommit failed. (0x1a)

I would recommend you to open a ticked with the switch provider, but if that is not an option, you could try to force again the commit by using the command firmwarecommit -f.

If that does not work, we'll see what other options are available.
