Upgrade Firmware Comware A7510

We have 2 switches HP Comware 7510, with 64389 KB memory in only one.

When i upgrade de firmware wtih IMC, he report an error that it´s not possible because  not space available.

The new image is 7500-CMW520-R6708P08

 

I tried  install in the CLI comand,  erased the old image and put the new in  the flash memory new image and execute the BOOT-LOADER command and reboot after the process they gave a error tell it´s not possible because he need the old image while load the new image.

 

How to fix this problem and get a upgrade the firmware.

 

P.S :

 

Current Software: 7500-cmw520-r6708

 

Latest Available Software for Upgrade: 7500-CMW520-R6708P08

Re: Upgrade Firmware Comware A7510

when you delete a file from the comware based devices its not totally delete from the flash. when you execute command "delete 7510ios.app"  the file goes to the recycle-bin. type command "dir  /all" the deleted file shoes withing the "[7510ios.app] " in oder to get more memory you need to delete it from the recycle-bin too command is "reset recycle-bin"

if you need to restore file from the recycle-bin type "undelete 7510ios.app"

Re: Upgrade Firmware Comware A7510

Hi,

the 7500 MPU typically only has 64389 KB on the internal flash.

and the images are all around 33000 KB, which means - there is only room for one image.

 

You need to delete the old image, and then upload the new one.

To - for real - delete a file you need the /unreserved flag on the delete command.

 > delete /unreserved 7500-cmw520-r6708.app

 

If you do not use the  /unreserved flag, it only puts the file in the trashcan, but that does not free space on the dirve, which makes the trashcan useless really..

 

If you did a

> delete 7500-cmw520-r6708.app

then you can empty the trashcan with a

>reset recycle-bin /force

 

after you deleted the image you need to upload the new image and set it as main boot image.

upload example

> tftp <tftp-server-ip-address> get <path>/7500-CMW520-R6708P06.app

"set image as main"

> boot-loader file flash:/7500-cmw520-r6708p08.app slot <MPU-physical-slot> main

 

note that the comware 5 file system converts the filename to lowercase.

 

its of course crucial, that you DO NOT reboot, or loose power during this process.

do a

> display boot-loader

to see that you're on track before you reboot.
