A. Go the the Aruba support site.

(Login with your partner account)

Go to download software.

B.Choose the relevant ArubaOS that fit your controller model.

C.Read the release notes (upgrade notes)

D.Download the firmware to local dir.

E.Login to the the controller as admin

   Go the maintenance

   Choose the right method (I prefer TFTP / ftp)

Side Note:   I would always use FTP.


Much faster, Much more reliable.

Re: How update firmware

Two favorite softwares for TFTP / FTP (YEP...FTP is FASTER)

 

3CDaemon (old..but working when needed - found some download links for u)

TFTPd (my favorite *There is also 64bit bersion)

I have had 3CDaemon on every laptop I have owned/touched since ~1999... a great must-have !

Also wanted to add to make sure you read the release notes carefully before you upgrade your controller

 

Note: If you are planning to upgrade a 3200 to 6.2 that one requires that you upgrade the memory 

Thank you

You guys are forgetting the most important thing

Make a backup before doing the upgrade:P

Re: How update firmware

Good catch Carlos !

 

Another one along the same lines:    DO this in a maintenance window.  That window being defined as when your end-users are least likely to be impacted!    

 

 I get asked all the time if we can upgrade in the middle of the day.  WE _CAN_ but you should follow your _NORMAL_ procedures with Aruba like you do any other vendors' devices ;)

Re: How update firmware

I try to update my firmware and I have a option I'm not sure what I have to select. I can upgrade the partition 0 or 1. Witch one I have to select for a AOS upgrade?

 

This is a image from my controller.

Re: How update firmware

You?ll want to upgrade the partition that is not selected as boot, so in
this case, partition 0.
