Hi, everybody,I have a VSF consisting of two Aruba 2930F in production whose firmware version is 16.04.0014. I want to upgrade the firmware of both switches to version 16.08.0014.I understand that if I do this the process updates both switches in the process and after the reboot they would both be updated.Is this correct?Thank you very much.
Yes. And also take a look at this:
Sorry the fast upgrade is for the 5400 series. Aruba 2930F VSF supports only the entire fabric reboot.
See this post for best practice guide for VSF stacks (Page 14 for you) : https://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Wired-Intelligent-Edge-Campus/Backplane-Stacking-and-VSF-Best-Practices-for-ArubaOS-Switch/m-p/501387
Hi! I suggest you to move directly to WC.16.10.0009 instead of just stopping into WC.16.08.0014 from WC.16.04.0014.
Note about Boot ROMs versions (related to newer software versions you're going to flash):
The WC.16.10.0009 software release will contain and use Boot ROM version WC.16.01.0006 (or Boot ROM version WC.16.01.0007 in case of JL692A).
On the other hand, the WC.16.08.0014 will use Boot ROM WC.16.01.0004.
Since WC.16.04.0018 uses Boot ROM version WC.16.01.0003 is highly probable that your current WC.16.04.0014 software release uses the very same Boot ROM version, the WC.16.01.0003: this mean that any significative update/upgrade to newer software version will require an updated Boot ROM (With "significative" I mean: from WC.16.04 to WC.16.08 or WC.16.10) and so it will force your Aruba 2930F to automatically update the Boot ROM first before proceeding with flashing the new software...thus be prepared to a double reboot (per switch).
