How to upgrade the Aruba Mobility Access Switch using USB drive and CLI ?

 

1. Copy the new image into the USB drive. It can be at the top level or any folder in the USB drive but remember to reference the location with the 'copy' command.
 


2. Plug in the USB into the MAS. This may take up to 30 seconds to be detected.
 


3. Type 'show usb' command to verify that the USB drive has been properly mounted.
 
(ArubaS3500) #show usb

4. Once the USB drive has been detected, type 'copy usb: <IMAGE NAME> system: partition <PARTITION NUMBER>
 
 
(ArubaS3500) #copy usb ArubaOS_MAS_7.1.3.0_33279 system: partition 0
................................................File ArubaOS_MAS_7.1.3.0_33279 copied to partition 0 sucessfully.

 
5. You can now remove the USB drive and type 'reload' for the new image to take effect.

 
(ArubaS3500) #reload
Do you really want to reset the system(y/n): y
System will now restart!


6. When the Mobility Access Switch reboots, you should see that it has booted with the new image but you can type 'show image version' to verify.
 
(ArubaS3500) #show image version

FYI  I do not believe this will work with the 7005 Series Controllers.
