Aruba 200 FIPS OS Upgrade

Hello all. I have a few questions that maybe someone can assist with.

I have been told that I need to upgrade my OS from 2.4.8.15-FIPS to 2.4.8.24-FIPS in order to support the AP-70-F1 image signing requirement. Can anyone point me to upgrade documentation? Is it as simple as copying the new image to controller and booting from it? Will I retain my current config after the upgrade?

Also it appears that I have an image on both of my controller partitions. Is it safe to remove one to make space for the new image? Does anyone know if licensing information will be retained after the upgrade?
Thanks in advance

Yeah, the upgrade is as simple as uploading the code to the controller and rebooting the controller. When it comes up on the new code, all the APs will also receive that code and you'll be back up in business.

Your config and everything will stay as-is.... Upgrading from 2.4.8.15 to 2.4.8.24 is a pretty small and incremental upgrade.

Thanks Brian for the reply.

Since there appears to be an image in both partitions, is it safe to remove one to make space for the new image

You don't need to remove it, just upload it to the one that is not marked default. You could actually upload to either one, and the system will take care of clearing out the existing image, but I tend to leave my current image on the box until I've booted into the new image.
