    Posted Jun 25, 2022 01:01 PM
    Hello Sir,
    Please I am having some challenges with above model upgrade.
    Current version is FL.10.05.0021 and I want to upgrade to ArubaOS-CX_6400-6300_10_06_0001.swi but it does not work. No error message as well.

    Please Im I missing something?
    CLI command I used is: copy primary tftp://10.10.10.20/ArubaOS-CX_6400-6300_10_06_0001.swi vrf mgmt

    I will be grateful, please.

    Hello, can you post here the exact sequence of steps (commands with their outputs) you performed on your Aruba 6300M CLI?

    Hello,

    Normally the copy command is working similar to (copy "from" "to"). So instead of downloading the image to the switch, you are trying to upload the primary image of the switch to the tftp server.

    The command should look like this:
    copy <REMOTE-URL> {primary | secondary} [vrf <VRF-NAME>]

    copy tftp://10.10.10.20/ArubaOS-CX_6400-6300_10_06_0001.swi primary vrf mgmt (if you are using the mgmt vrf, make sure you are using the mgmt port of the switch).

    Hello Sirs
    Please find below as requested.

    6300# copy tftp://10.10.10.20/ArubaOS-CX_6400-6300_10_09_1020.swi primary vrf mgmt
    This operation will overwrite the primary firmware image which is currently
    in use by Redundant Management. After the image update completes, Redundant
    Management functionality will be unavailable until the system has been rebooted.

    Hi,

    In your initial request you wrote, that you are trying to update from 10.05.0021 to 10_06_0001.
    Now I see you are currently on FL.10.06.0002 and you are uploading the 10_09_1020.
    Did you already update the switch successfully to 10.06?

    If you check the release notes for the 10.09, you will find that the minimum requested version is 10.07 (important information section):

    Hello Team
    Thanks so much for the great and candid support provided. I have been able to upgrade the firmware up to the version I wanted following your detailed instructions .
    Please how will I be able to tell the next version to upgrade to. How will I be guided to upgrade following a recommended upgrade path, because when I go to the ASP portal I dont know how to do that. 

    If you check the release notes for the 10.09, you will find that the minimum requested version is 10.07 (important information section):

    I went there as advised but not all worked except some versions
    Thanks
