Using the DCFM 10.3.1 to upgrade the firmware in one of our data centres.
DCX as core with 5300's as edge switches.
Successfully imported the v6.3.1a into the repository.
Successfully updated 5 of the 6 switches ... 5300
The 6th fails with the following generic message ... "The server is inaccessible or firmware path is invalid. Please make sure the server name or IP address, the user/password and he firmware path are valid."
Seems like a bogus message since the first 5 switches worked fine.
Same model of switches.
Upgrading from the same firmware to the same destination firmware.
Same user account is used for all switches.
Cecked the user accounts on all the switches and they are all identical.
Tried it locally on the switch and it fails from both ftp and using the USB port.
Rebooted the switch and still no go.

Nope, DCFM is IP based to discover, and like I said, we tried to telnet into the switch and run it manually with no success.
Been seeing other issues with the switch, having problems finding certain commands ...
Pretty sure the image is corrupt or the memory is bad.
Swapped out the switch and it's Hitachi's problem now (they sold us the switches)
Switch will most likely be replaced ... That batch of 5300's was not the greatest, we actually swapped out 5 out of 70.
