ArubaOS-CX 10.04.0041 is here!

  • 1.  ArubaOS-CX 10.04.0041 is here!

    Hi all,


    ArubaOS-CX 10.04.0041 Software Images for Aruba 8400, Aruba 8325Aruba 8320, Aruba CX 6300 and Aruba CX 6400 Switch series have just been published.



    Please refer to Release Notes provided on above links for a complete view of new features, enhancements and bug fixes introduced with this ArubaOS-CX software release.


    Note: As happened with ArubaOS-CX 10.04.0040 Release Notes for Aruba 6300F/M and Aruba 6400, the above published ArubaOS-CX 10.04.0041 Release Notes document for Aruba CX 6300 and Aruba CX 6400 Switch Series reports only the Aruba CX 6300 Switch Series as supported, totally lacking of any reference about Aruba 6400 Switch Series. See the original note on ArubaOS-CS 10.04.0040 thread here.


    Edit 23rd May 2020: I'm more and more under the impression that Aruba 6400 should be deployed using ArubaOS-CX 10.04.1000 or 10.04.2000 because any previous version (e.g. 10.04.00xx) doesn't mention any support for it switch series. If this line of reasoning is correct then I should modify URLs titles accordingly, especially for latest ArubaOS-CX 10.04.00xx software releases announcement threads.

    I'm a bit lost with this versioning scheme.

    10.04.0041 is more recent than 10.04.2000, but 10.04.2000 has a higher version. Then, release notes for 0041 doesn't mention .1000 or .2000 for version history. It looks like two different release trains. But then, when should I go with .2000 and when should I use .0041?

    For a 6300M, what version should I deploy?

    That's because ArubaOS-CX 10.04.1000, 10.04.2000 and very recent 10.04.3000 releases form a sort of "separate branch" [*] of the 10.04 spine, and it originated from ArubaOS-CX 10.04.0040 release, thus it diverges from 10.04.0041 which was the next direct software release derived from 10.04.0040.


    I'm not sure exactly why all that was necessary but it seems to me that there are relationships with added support for new hardware (think about SFP56 or to 100G)


    As of today (13rd June 2020) you have two choices for your Aruba 6300M Switch series:


    1. go with ArubaOS-CX 10.04.0041
    2. go with ArubaOS-CX 10.04.3000

    [*] I called it a "separate branch" because it's what I see from RN; as you, I've no other valuable info about it. Being a "separate branch", release dates of 10.04.x000 versions are not necessarily related to the release date of 10.04.0041 version..that can explain your confusion.
