Do you need an upgrade to the latest PCM+3 update file, or maybe upgrade to PCM+ 4? Check the readme with the 2910 firmware - it may provide some extra info about PCM.

Hi, you have to update software version list in PCM. Go to preferences/configuration management, there is a download button for this list.

OK, check if this firmware is present in the software list (try to find it in txt file), or I remeber that sometimes in the past there was syntax error in the list (missing character, etc.).

PCM is rather conservative as what it calls the latest version; I guess there is some additional QA process to get into that list beyond the release to web.

 

As it happens, W 14.70 is the latest revision to the firmware release file.

You can manually add software updates to PCM:

 

  1. Browse to the ProCurve site: http://h17007.www1.hp.com/uk/en/products/switches/index.aspx
  2. Download the firmware version you need
  3. Open the following directory on the PCM server: 
    1. Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\PNM\server\data\download
  4. Backup the procurve_firmware.prp file
  5. Open the .prp file and locate the section for the switch model you are interested in (easiest to search for the start of the firmware name e.g. N_11_)
  6. Update the line that starts "Latest=" to be the new firmware version
  7. Copy the existing latest code release "block" e.g. 
        N_11_25{

                                PackageFileName=2810-Software-N1125b.zip

                                FileName=N_11_25.swi
                                ReleaseNotes=2810-RelNotes-N1125-59916273b.pdf
                                ReleaseInfo=none
                                ReleaseDate=05/11/2010
                                }

       and modify the appropriate parts to match the new firmware file names.
  1. Do the same for each revision of the switch (e.g. 2610-24, 2610-24-POE)
  2. Extract the .swi file(s) and copy them into the same folder
  3. Copy the .prp file, the zip file, and the .swi file into the directory
  4. Stop and restart the PCM services:
    1. HP ProCurve Datastore 
    2. HP ProCurve Network Manager Server
    3. HP ProCurve Network Manager Agent
  5. Re-run the software update wizard
