    Posted Jun 01, 2021 12:07 PM
    Hello,

    I've googled around and looked through documentation, but haven't found this yet. It seems like it would be easy to do. Ok so here's my question:

    I have a 7240xm controller managed by a virtual mobility master. Each flash partition has a different firmware version. I would like to switch from the current version it is running to the other version on the standby flash partition. How do I do this?

    Also, it seems like you cannot have the same version flashed to both partitions? Is that right?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    You can use the command 'boot system partition [0 or 1]' to change the boot partition. Why do you need the same version loaded to each parition?

    Thanks Craig, that did it for me. I was trying to do this through the mobility master, but this worked when I SSH'd directly to the controller itself.

    New-turn up of a system. Was thinking it'd be good to have both at the same version initially, but its ok this way.

    Thanks for your help!
