Upgrade firmware 6.x to 8.x

Hi Guys,


I'm very new to Aruba, and working on my home lab and I get stuck :) so I hope there are people here that want to help me out.



Connect Box (Ziggo) - Ziggo is our home provider

HP 2530-8G-PoEP Switch (J9774A) - Connected to the Connect Box (Ziggo)


To the switch I've 1 Aruba controller 7005 and 1 AP-305.


I try to upgrade the 7005, however through TFPT (GUI and CLI) and local file it is not working. All the time I get the error:

"Error determining image version."


I tried with the follow files:




currently I've ArubaOS


Try to put my lab up for ACMA/ACMP certification track. Thanks!

Those files are not upgrade files, but snmp-mib files.


The file should look something like:



Do you have access to asp? This is a link to the file you need.

Thanks, I was afraid for that. I do have access to ASP, however that file is under entitlement, so no access to that specific file.

on ASP customers need to add their SAID to be eligble for software downloads. Partners can use the 'partner ready portal user?' link, see attached screenshot.

Thanks all for the quick replys! Thanks for pointing out the right file :).

Guess there was something wrong with my account over the weekend, I couldn't download that specific file but since yesterday I was able to!


The Dutch Aruba team contacted me yesterday by mail as well!
