I have above switch which I have tried to update from 16.3.1 and I have took it to 16.3.6 but not without a struggle.
At first, it completely failed to boot even after telling me that firmware upgrade was successful.
I have managed to use usb with image on it to get it going.
I also had to point boot variable to packages.conf as it wasn't loading the full package.
On support website, I can see there is Gibraltar 16.12.07 available to install.
Am I correct in thinking I can install this without destroying it again? or do I need to be careful about it ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
- If you are unsure of outcome , then copy running-config to external repository first with scp or tftp, in worst case, factory reset, upgrade on virgin device then you can (still) restore config.
I am not really bothered about config though I do have a backup of the config.
it won't kill the device if firmware upgrade fails ? thats what I want to know.
also, would that be correct latest version >> https://software.cisco.com/download/home/284455425/type/282046477/release/Gibraltar-16.12.7
- Firmware upgrade won't kill the device , when done correctly and or always best to study release notes of intended version , yes link is latest advisory release which is the best to install.
whats the best procedure to install I have used below previously
++ upload the firmware using tftp or usb to flash
++ then boot flash: name of BIN file
I have also used request platform software package install switch all file flash:BIN file
thanks for that.
an update for 16.6.9, everything works however I am unable to login to WebUi after short amount of time. serial / ssh works fine still
WebUI just says invalid creds. is that a buggy web ui or something else.
