prereq.

running ftp server

firmware accesible from ftp (try with your workstation for exm.)

-Log on to the active CP

-issue firmwaredownload, interactive (give necessary info to succesfully access firmware on ftp server)

-done

Be aware that the firmware is actually downloaded twice (once per CP).

First CP to reboot is the standby CP with new firmware.

After standby CP is updated, the Active CP will reboot making the (then) standby CP active.

The now standby CP (formerly active) will download the firmware again and reboot with new firmware

End
