6) Enter the command below to create a share:

(host) (config)# network-storage share <sharename>


7) Associating the share to a filesystem path—To access the share, you must create a filesystem path to the share.

(host) (config-network-storage share)# share usb: disk <disk name> <filesystem path> mode

<disk name>          ------> Device name from "show usb-storage"
<filesystem path>    ------> Partition name from "show usb-storage partitions"

Example:
=======

(Master) (config) #share usb: disk  hp-v228g-0410080000006279  hp-v228g-0410080000006279_p1 mode read-write

(Master) (config) #show network-storage status

NAS Shares
----------
Disk Name                  Partition Name                Folder Name  Share Name  Share Path                    Share Mode  Status
---------                  --------------                -----------  ----------  ----------                    ----------  ------
hp-v228g-0410080000006279  hp-v228g-0410080000006279_p1  .            hp-v228g    hp-v228g-0410080000006279_p1  Read-Write  Active

8) Display the status of a connected NAS device, enter the command:

(Master) (config) #show network-storage status

Network attached service is enabled

9). Finally the command to upgrade the controller is:

(Master) (config) #copy usb: ArubaOS_6xx_6.3.1.5_43118 system: partition 0    

Filename is the Aruba AOS file name that is stored on the USB.

10) After the file is saved in the flash, reboot the controller to have the new code take effect.
