Firmware upgrade HP GBE2c Ethernet Switch

Hello

The update tool supplied with the 1.1 firmware update refuses to work. Will not see the switch.

The only other way i have seen to update the firmware is via a serial connection. Re-booting the switch and holding shift D during boot up. This is described in the switch user guide. Is this the only way to do the firmware upgrade ?

I do not see an option from a telnet to the switch to update the firmware via TFTP.

Please confirm.

Thanks

1.1 and 2.0 same files, (except few for update), can you run discovery and see any other switches ? settings

Hello Oleg

HP says that you first have to update to 1.1 and then to ver 2.0

Ive run a discover and it will not see the switch. I can telnet to the switch no problem. Is there a setting on the switch that must be enabled for the installation software to see it ?

Thanks

I used the serial connection and the method described in the user manual to update the firmware.

It worked perfectly.
