Re: HP 2920-24G PoE+ should I upgrade the firmware

Thank you very much parnassus for your detailed response.

I shall peruse the links and documentation you have provided. I will initially take the safer route and upgrade my 15.x firmware and from there attempt to determine if its worth the effort to switch to the 16.x branch. 

Thanks again - i appreciate your time and effort in that post.

Yep.

The actual ArubaOS-Switch Features Support Matrix - valid since first 16.03 release (16.03.0003) - reports those new features:

  • Next Generation GUI for KB (Aruba 3810 and 5400R zl2), KA (Aruba 3800), WB (Aruba 2920), RA (Aruba 2620) and YA/YB (Aruba 2530). Other platforms like WC (Aruba 2930F) and YC (Aruba 2540) have the Next Generation GUI already enabled since, respectively, releases 16.02.0008 and 16.02.0012.
  • VSF (Virtual Switching Framework) for WC (Aruba 2930F).
  • QoS: Netdestinations and Netservices for KB (Aruba 3810 and 5400R zl2), WC (Aruba 2930F), WB (Aruba 2920), YA/YB (Aruba 2530) and YC (Aruba 2540) . Other platforms like KA (Aruba 3800) and RA (Aruba 2620) haven't support for this feature.
  • PIM: Override RPF (Reverse Path Forward) Lookup for WC (Aruba 2930F).
  • PIM: "router pim" Command Enhancements for WC (Aruba 2930F).

YA was reported as supporting the above feature since its 16.02 branch (don't know if it is an error/typo or if that is true).
