CPBoot on Aruba 3200 Controller

I regularly update my ArubaOS on my 3200 controller and I was wondering if I ever need to update the CPBoot version.  I've seen some forum postings of controllers running versions higher than mine so I know updates do exist.  I'm wondering if there is any advantages or disadvantages of doing so.


I'm on CPBoot version (build 16250) which I believe is what my controller shipped with.  It was built 2007-09-20 16:14:24.


Also this begs the questions of where I could get a hold of an update and what the update procedure is.

Re: CPBoot on Aruba 3200 Controller

I have a 4302 controller.
I can not upgrade at all.

By "cpboot" mode I can not ping the gateway.
In the "uartb" mode I make the command "" ifconfig eth0 -addr = -mask = "" ping ok, but when upgrading occore below:

Npboot> ping ( is alive ( 1 packets sent, 1 received
*** command status = 0
Npboot> load -tftp
Loader: raw Filesys: tftp Dev: eth0 File: OAW4302_5.0.4.7_34135 Options: (null)
........... 262144 bytes read
Entry at 0x0000000020000000
*** command status = 0

The firmware does not go through completely.
