Re: HPE FlexFabric 5930 Switch Series SW version

Can you provide us the exact SKU?

There isn't any 5930AF...only HPE FlexFabric 5930 Swich series (now discontinued IIRC) and that family is mande of various models, see here:

https://h10145.www1.hpe.com/support/SupportLookUp.aspx

and look for 5930.

Despite the SKU of your model, since your one is running the Comware 7.1.0 R2422P02 operating system released September 7th, 2016 then actually you would have two possible software branches to reach:

  • R27 software branch with the R2702 as the latest available build (published February, 22nd 2020).
  • R26 software branch with the R2612P08 as the latest available build (published February, 28th 2020).

in order to update it at best at 2020. No other software updates were published after February 2020.

From an FC/FCOE support perspective the following is documented in the HPE SPOCK for Comware switches:

https://www.hpe.com/storage/spock

Updating your switches even to R2432P03  will be disruptive, should IRF be configured.
