Re: HP SAN Switch 4/16 Firmware Upgrade

You need to go to

5.3.x
6.0.x
6.1.x
6.2.x

ask HP for version 6.0.x, because you won't find it on hp.com ... :-(

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

I'm not absolutely sure if you need a step between 5.0.x and 5.3.x.
With early versions you can skip a subversion, but from 6.x.x on you need to go step by step.

Hope this helps!

Re: HP SAN Switch 4/16 Firmware Upgrade

That's why I uploaded this question because I think that before upgrading to version 5.3x you must have version 5.1x, but I forgot and can not find documentation about it.

Also I have the doubt if the 6.0x version I can upgrade directly to version 6.2.2c

6.2.x

Hope this helps!

Hello,
we jumped from early 5.xx with no problem... Dependencies start when closing and crosing 6.00... Go ahead (jus backup your config...)

Re: HP SAN Switch 4/16 Firmware Upgrade

I'm in the same situation (5.0.1b on my 4/16) but I don't have a 5.1.x/6.0.x and no current support contract for the switch 8-(. It's a lab switch for playing with.

Anyone know where/how I can ask/beg to get a 5.1.x and 6.0.x firmware for a 4/16?

Muchas gracias ....
