Upgrade failed on Brocade 5470 from 6.4.1a to 6.4.3f3

Attempted to upgrade a Brocade 5470 embedded in an IBM H Class Chassis from 6.4.1a to 6.4.3f3.  Pushing the code from DCFM to one swtich in the chassis at a time.  I get the below error.  Uptime in 1300+ days, switch shows as healthy.  Any ideas? 

 

Queued for Firmware download

System in NON-REDUNDANT state.

Re: Upgrade failed on Brocade 5470 from 6.4.1a to 6.4.3f3

the switch show fine.

I would suggest if you want to update, to start the "firmwaredownlaod" command from command line and not from DCFM -

BTW, DCFM is not longer supported.

 

additional, I suggest to use 6.4.3g and not the .3f3

I am running it from Connectrix Manager 12.3.1 (CMCNE)

Bob,

you wrote: "Pushing the code from DCFM to...." for this reason I mention that the DCFM is not longer supported.

 

CMCNE = BNA is Supported and should work without any Issue.

If the problem persist, - as mentioned I would use another Package i.e. 6.4.3g - or start the upgrade from command line, this is the simple and easy way.

otherwise open a call with EMC or the 5470 Vendor
