IMC update CX Switches

  • 1.  IMC update CX Switches

    Posted May 12, 2023 11:26 AM

    Hi Everyone,

    I have IMC 7.3 E708 with a bunch of the 6200 JL728A CX switches.  They are currently running 10_06_0101 and I need to update them to 10_11_1005.  

    When I run the manual update command using CLI: copy tftp://ServerIP/image.swi primary vrf mgmt, it works.

    But when I use IMC to update the firmware, it failed with script has errors.  When review the errors, I noticed IMC did not have the "vrf mgmt" in the command to copy the firmware down.  

    Has anyone ran into this?  I can't find anything on the web regarding this.  IMC has to have a feature somewhere that I missed to tell it to recognize or specify which vrf to run on.  

    Thanks for your help!

    Are you trying with HPE IMC 7.3 E0708P03 (E0708 Patch 03) or just with E0708 (E0708 GA)?

    I just have E0708.  Haven't updated to P03 yet but been thinking about it.  I see from the release notes that software image files support has been added in the E0708 release but haven't seen anything new in the Patches yet so have not.  Are you finding that the P03 works?

    Hi Boowoo,   

    708P03  fixes two issues (from the readme):
    12. SNMP errors during Aruba OS-CX device upgrade.
    13. ArubaOS-CX software upgrade initializes tasks abnormally

    Also please check the IMC and switches configuration according to the 708 guide:

    Hello,

    IMC will not add 'vrf mgmt' to any commands unless you specify it in the Configuration Center Options under "VPN Instance" (aka VRF) for the device.
