HP5800-24G Upgrade Comware 5 to Comware 7

Good Evening, i am trying to update my 5800 switch from Comware 5 to Comware 7 and i am currently stuck and don't know how I should proceed.

The switch is currently running 520-R1810P01 and i want to upgrade it to Comware R7006P15 . I downloaded the Image and copied it with a USB Stick to the Switch.

I tried to set the boot-loader to Flash:/A5800_5820X-CMW710-R7006P15.ipe but i am always getting an error that it is an invalid file.

What is the reason for that?

Forcing the switch to boot from the IPE Image through the BootROM resulted in a whole lot of stack traces....

I appreciate the input as i am currently lost. Thanks,

SMK1,

I'm not sure how you got that particular release of the software as we have not released it yet.  Migrating from Comware 5 to Comware 7 is a major shift for the switch and there are major changes to the filesystem that are done. 

Detailed information on this upgrade can be found in the HP 5800&5820X Comware V5-V7 Migration Guide.  R7006P15 requires a new BootRom file and you need to contact HPE Support about that.  You will most likely not be able to get that until the software is officially released.

Regards,

David

Hi All

@sMk1, I would like ask by the way, what you expect after upgrade to CMW7 for this platform ? Do you need Openflow enabled?

Br,

Hi,

in need to test various IPv6-related security features as i  am currently in a rollout project and want to have consistent configuration templates (e.g. some features behave/configure differently in Comware 5 and 7, and we have a couple of 5130 with Comware 7 already running).

Thanks

I would contact you HPE reprentative who gave you Comware 7 for the 5800 as its a best its a Beta code, maybe even Alpha.  This is also the reason why there is no link to migration guide.
