Cisco 3850 Stack Upgrade (failed)

Hi,

Trying to upgrade the stack switches in Bundle mode however forgot to copy the firmware on the other switch(SW02)
Upon reload SW02 boot to old firmware and unable to connect to CS01
What is the approach to fix this?
Was wonder if I would INSTALL the new firmware to SW02 and reload would that work?

Thank you in advance for the reply!

If the sw1 booted with new firmware, you see the Logs in the switch firmware mismatch, so console in to second switch upgrade to same firmware and reboot, so you see the device join stack as expected.

  1. Convert switch 1 to Install Mode. 
  2. Reboot switch 1. 
  3. Enter the command "install autoupgrade".  

This command will instruct switch 1, the master, to "push" the package files down to all switch members.
