Upgrade 5900

Hello
I want to update a 5900 switch.
Actually I am in 7.1.045.

Which version can I download?
And when I update I start in the menu .. select 1 downlaod to image .. then 1 in TFTP. I installed a tftp on mpn station with the directory of an update to install but I still have the result failed.
How to proceed? Thanks for your help

Hi @Jvdv !

Here is the link to the software versions available - https://h10145.www1.hpe.com/downloads/SoftwareReleases.aspx?ProductNumber=JG336A

I recommend you to install the latest 5900AF-5920AF_7.10.R2432P06

In the release notes https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docId=a00047073en_us Appendix B is what you are looking for. If your switch already has Comware image installed and you can boot into full CLI, then go with "Upgrading through the CLI". If the switch can't boot or has no image, then your path is "Upgrading from the Boot Menu"

When upgrade using TFP make sure IP address you set on the switch and on the PC running TFTP server are on the same subnet, make sure network cable between PC and the switch is connected to the M-GE0/0/0 port of the switch and please, disable any software firewall that may be running on your PC.

Hello

Thank you for your reply.
From the version where I am current I can switch to the version you recommended without problem? (5900AF-5920AF_7.10.R2432P06)

How do I know the IP of my switch? I connect in CLI console mode.

thank you very much

Hello,

You can run 'display interface brief' or 'display ip interface brief' and see what is the IP address assigned on management interface.

Thanks!

Thank you for the information provided!

First of all you do not have any single active IP interface, neither routed port nor Vlan-interface, therefore this switch can't reach not only your tftp server, it practically can't reach anything. What you need to do is to connect your PC to a switchport, for example Gig2/0/1, then make Gig2/0/1 access port in Vlan 1 for example:

system-view
interface Gig2/0/1
 port link-mode bridge
 port link-type access
 port access vlan 1



then create a Vlan-interface in Vlan1 and assign it IP address 192.168.0.254 (if tftp server's IP is 192.168.0.100/24):

system-view
interface Vlan1
 ip address 192.168.0.254 24
 undo shutdown
 



Now exit to the user-view and try to ping TFTP server from the switch:

ping 192.168.0.100



If PC's firewall doesn't block incoming ICMP echo requests, you will see replies. Then you can proceed to TFTP file transfer.
