Nexus C3548P-10GX Upgrade Issue

Hey, i'm trying to upgrade a 3548 from 9.2.2 to 9.3.1 and get the below error.

 

Setting boot variables.
[########### ] 50% -- FAIL.
Return code -1.


Install has failed. Return code 0x4093000C (Setting boot variables failed).
Please identify the cause of the failure, and try 'install all' again.

I've tried performing the upgrade with all and force-all but still get the same error. The impact checker comes back OK.

Re: Nexus C3548P-10GX Upgrade Issue

Are you using the 'install all' command?

Also, from https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/datacenter/nexus3000/sw/release/notes/931/nexus_931_3000_3500_3600_rn.html 

 

Upgrade Path to Cisco NX-OS Release 9.3(1)

The following disruptive upgrade paths are supported:

  Release 6.0(2)A8(2) or later -> Release 6.0(2)A8(7b) or later -> Release 9.3(1)*

  Release 6.0(2)A7(2a) or earlier -> Release 6.0(2)A8(9) -> Release 9.3(1)

*Note: For this upgrade path, you must first upgrade the switch to Cisco NX-OS Release 6.0(2)A8(7b) or later and then compact the file using the scp compact option before upgrading to Cisco NX-OS Release 9.3(1).

Re: Nexus C3548P-10GX Upgrade Issue

Hi yeah, I’ve tried install all and install force-all. Neither works.

 

Im going from 9.2.2 to 9.3.1 so pretty sure the compact commands don’t apply. I have a smart contract so will open a case.

Hi,
I have the same issue when I try to upgrade those switches.
Did you get anything good from TAC?

Re: Nexus C3548P-10GX Upgrade Issue

Yep, even between these versions you have to compact the file.

 

Basically place the file on a SCP server and run this command:

 

copy scp://username:password@x.x.x.x/nxos.9.3.1.bin bootflash: compact vrf xxx
