Import the files into IMC.  When importing, you can select either device software, or Boot Manager. Import the files separately.

 

Then go through the software deployment process, selecting both device software, and Boot ROM. 

 

Don't deploy it to all 70 devices at once. Do it in batches, and test it out thoroughly first.

Hi

thank you for replay I tired that but the old Boot Manager will not delete I must login the switch and delete it,

I want ask do you mean  Boot ROM = .btm file ??

If the the case I can't find the  Boot ROM when I click select ? How can I make the iMC see it ??

 

Thank you

Re: Can you help update in iMC ......?

Yes, the Boot ROM is the *.btm file.

I don't understand " I tired that but the old Boot Manager will not delete I must login the switch and delete it"

What were the EXACT steps you went through to get to that point?

Try manually installing the software on a switch, and see what happens. You might have a corrupted download, or some other issue.

Hi

I try manually  installing and work fine

Re: Can you help update in iMC ......?

Next step is probably to try deploying it, and then look at the logs under <imc>/server/conf/log, to work out what's going on, and why it's failing.

Re: Can you help update in iMC ......?

Look for imccfgupdm* - it might be worth trying the update again, and then looking at the latest output.

I can't find the file imccfgupdm in <imc>/server/conf/log ?

Re: Can you help update in iMC ......?

Looking at it, it seems to go through these steps:
1/ Delete the old firmware - works OK
2/ Transfer the Boot Manager - all works OK
3/ Transfer the new firmware - transfer seems to be working, but then at the end it's saying that it can't find the file on the switch. Here's the relevant output:

If you look at the flash on that switch, can you see the new image there?

If it was my network, I'd probably be using Wireshark, and looking at the traffic between IMC and that switch, to better understand where it's failing. You may prefer to log a case - it's up to you.

Re: Can you help update in iMC ......?

hi

yes i can see the file there in the switch ?!

Re: Can you help update in iMC ......?

And the file size on the switch looks correct? If it is, the transfer is completing successfully,

Do you have working SNMP read-write configured for this device?

Re: Can you help update in iMC ......?

Hi

the file size is 13991278 kb so it correct and so the  SNMP read-write it work fine.

Re: Can you help update in iMC ......?

Just saw a couple of other things that look a bit odd:

2013-07-29 09:22:06.650 [ERROR (0)] [THREAD(6052)] [CQvDBConnADP::CQvDBConnADP]Database has not connect!
2013-07-29 09:22:06.650 [ERROR (0)] [THREAD(6052)] [CQvDBConnADP::status] Isconnected failed, errorMsg:Cannot open database "icc_db" requested by the login. The login failed.

2013-07-29 09:22:24.870 [INFO (0)] [THREAD(9412)] [CQvApplication::start] call globalInit().

I'm not sure what's causing that - it might be nothing to worry about, as it's not really causing your problem here.

And it looks like SNMP Read-write isn't working:
2013-07-29 10:01:51.968 [INFO (10)] [THREAD(8904)] [CSnmpOper::iCommitOper] send snmp set packge fail.->[172.20.0.25]
2013-07-29 10:01:51.968 [INFO (0)] [THREAD(8904)] Commit snmp operation failed.

Use Wireshark, look at what's going on between IMC and the switch.

Hi

i use the Wireshark one before but i don't now how to use it I'm new to Wireshark very new. can you tell me how to do it.

Re: Can you help update in iMC ......?

Hi,

 

Try the "check access settings" in IMC first, it should test snmp read and write communities and report on the status.

Resource - Batch operation - Check Access settings - Add device, select snmp only (no need for telnet/ssh) and verify the result (with details option).

 

Other option is wireshark, install wireshark on the IMC server (x86/x64), start the capture and use this display filter:

(snmp.data == 2 or snmp.data == 3) and ip.addr == 1.1.1.1

 

Update IP to your switch IP. This filter will only show the snmp SET and RESPONSE packets.

 

When you see a SET packet to the switch, it should reply with a RESPONSE and inside the snmp section of the packet there should be a NOERROR status.

If you do not see an snmp response, there might be:

* acl restricting SNMP access

* wrong community string

Both of these should be checked in the switch config,

 

Best regards,Peter

Hi

I check it with Wireshark and there is no error you can see it in the attachment.

LindsayHill

Re: Can you help update in iMC ......?

OK, so now try running an upgrade again, but this time capturing all traffic with Wireshark.

 

Use a capture filter of "host <IP of switch>"

 

Analyse that output, to see if you can work out where it's failing.

Hi

I check but it give me many error you can see the photo in the attachment.

Re: Can you help update in iMC ......?

You can ignore that type of error.

 

Look at your payload contents. Follow the sessions between the server and device. Work out what it's doing right up to the time it logs errors in IMC and fails.

 

If this is not your sort of thing to do, I STRONGLY recommend you log a case about this.

Re: Can you help update in iMC ......?

Hi

I can't find any error, I will it and then search more the log a case about it.

 

thank you for your help.
