    Posted Feb 24, 2021 11:43 AM
    Hello ,
    I want to upgrade a 2 * 2930F on VSF mode from WC.16.03.0005 to WC.16.09.0014.
    I have sent the image though TFTP on the secondary image, and I will reboot the system on secondary (#bootsystem flash secondary).
    Normally the image should be automatically copied from the Commander member to other members

    My question is how to be sure that the image is also copied on the VSF member 2 ?

    Is the bellow command give me the vsf member2 flash image?
    FR-CCB-SWD015(vsf member-2)# show flash 



    Actually , the result is the same as when I put directly the command ( see below)​FR-CCB-SWD015# sh flash

    Primary Boot ROM Version : WC.16.01.0003
    Secondary Boot ROM Version : WC.16.01.0003

    Thank you or your help

    Hi, if I'm not wrong (IIRC) you don't have a direct way to ensure (or verify) that VSF Commander successfully copied its (updated) Flash - let say Secondary or Primary - on all other VSF Members. I believe it could be said that the VSF Stack always run on the VSF Commander's booted software version (which should also be the software version booted on all other VSF Members part of the same stack).

    Thank you for your reply,
    I guess it's the same behavior for 2930M switches on Stack mode. We can't verify that the the Commander successfully copied its Flash on all other stack Members

    You can log into each stack member via the member context to verify the flash is downloaded to the member for both stacking and vsf:

    Switch(config)# member-context 2
    Switch(vsf member-2)# show flash
