Brocade Blade Switch Firmware Update

Hi all,

 

I have a couple of Brocade 4/24 switches in a C7000 chassis which are running v5.05 of the Firmware.  I have a couple of questions:

 

(1) can I jump straight from 5.05 to v6.1.2b which is the earliest release available for download (apart from the version i have)

 

(2) If I am supposed to be able to go straight to that version, why when I try to download the firmware from my FTP Server I get the following error:

 

"Could not read the Pfile headr.

Firmwaredownload failed. (0x12) Cannot access package list (.plist) file."

 

the corresponding error on the FTP server is

 

000110)13/08/2012 07:17:53 - fcswitch (172.19.5.102)> 250 CWD successful. "/SWBD43" is current directory.

(000110)13/08/2012 07:17:53 - fcswitch (172.19.5.102)> PORT 172,19,5,102,230,52

(000110)13/08/2012 07:17:53 - fcswitch (172.19.5.102)> disconnected.

 

Any help/input greatly appreciated.

You need to update step by step, see also

 (don't include "/SWBD43" in the path)


Hope this helps!
