7240xm controller - change which boot partition is running

    Posted 20 days ago
    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!
