How do I upgrade the Aruba switch image using cpboot?

Aruba Employee

Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba 3000, 6000, and 600 Series Controllers and all ArubaOS versions.

 

1) Set the environmental variables to the controller by issuing the following commands:

 

Hit any key to stop autoboot: 0 <<< 5 seconds to press Enter.
cpboot> <<< This is the "cpboot" mode.

cpboot> setenv ipaddr 10.168.89.18 <<< Controller IP address.
cpboot> setenv netmask 255.255.255.0 <<< Controller subnet mask.
cpboot> setenv gatewayip 10.168.89.1 <<< Controller gateway IP.
cpboot> setenv serverip 10.1.1.234 <<< TFTP server IP address.
cpboot> save <<< Save the configuration.


The 'save' command is necessary in the Aruba 3000 Series controllers, but it is not required for Aruba 800/2400 controllers.

 

2) Verify connectivity by issuing these commands:

 

cpboot> ping <gateway ip>

cpboot> ping <tftp server ip>

 

3) Upgrade the controller by issuing these commands:

 

cpboot> upgrade 0 ArubaOS_MMC_3.3.2.5_19578
