Blade switch GBE2 Crash on Upgrade 1.0.0 -> 2.2.0

Hi,

I'm trying to upgrade a couple of GBE2-switches running firmware 1.0.0 to firmware 2.2.0.

I read on the download-site, that you can't upgrade from 1.0.0/1.0.1 through the web-interface, so I've been trying from the CLI with standard TFTP.

I had no problems upgrading the boot-image to 2.2.0, but the switches PANIC-crash when upgrading the firmware:



>> s-dix-2 - Boot Options# gtimg
Enter name of switch software image to be replaced
: image2
Enter hostname or IP address of TFTP server: 10.65.53.157
Enter name of file on TFTP server: pGbE2_220.bin

image2 currently contains Software Version 1.0.0
New download will replace image2 with file "pGbE2_220.bin"
from TFTP server 10.65.53.157.
Confirm download operation : y
Starting download...
File appears valid
Download in progress..............................................................................



I can see (on my TFTP-server) that the switch fetches all the firmware-file, but it crashes right after the tftp-download.

When it comes up again, the log says:

"Last Boot Time 8:01:28 Thu May 11, 2006 (software PANIC)"

Anyone got a clue?

Regards,

Lasse
