StorageWorks B-Series Fabric OS upgrade guide

Does HP have an upgrade guide for the B-Series switches? I have downloaded 6.2.2 Fabric OS for my 4Gb SAN switch for C-class enclosures but there is no guide included. I found the release notes but there are no instructions for performing the update in there nor any references to any instructions.

The release notes I got for my Cisco MDS-9120 included instructions for doing the upgrade. Where can I find the same information for the B-Series switches?

I found it always in the release notes. Just run the firmwaredownload command and point to the ftp server that contains the firmware.

Hope this helps!

Release Notes for 6.2.2: " http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/CoreRedirect.jsp?redirectReason=DocIndexPDF&prodSeriesId=3185340&targetPage=http%3A%2F%2Fbizsupport1.austin.hp.com%2Fbc%2Fdocs%2Fsupport%2FSupportManual%2Fc01945506%2Fc01945506.pdf "


What are your switches currently at firmware wise? You may need to do a little jumping if you are at 6.0 or earlier.

My switches are currently on 5.2 I think. The information is back at the office right now but I know it 5.x. I did read that I would need to upgrade to 6.0 before going to 6.2.2.

From 5.2, you will have to go to 6.0.x,6.1.x,6.2.2. Cant remember if you actually have to do the 5.3.x version first.

Re: StorageWorks B-Series Fabric OS upgrade guide

Ok it's been a while since I replied but I had to take care of some other projects first. My switches are at 5.3.0d so I will need to go to 6.0, then 6.1 and finally 6.2.2. However I can't find the 6.0 firmware on the HP site. They have 5.3 and 6.1 listed but no 6.0. Any idea where to get this? How can I upgrade if I can't get 6.0?

Thanks for the help. I opened up a ticket with HP and they put it up on an FTP site for me to download.
