Re: HP Switch OS

Info is in most relnotes of zipped file for code update:

To perform an update to your switch software, follow the steps below (see page 7 for detailed steps):
1. Download the image to your TFTP server.
2. Save your current configuration (Config1) to a backup configuration file (Config2).
3. Save your current configuration to an external tftp server.
4. Backup your current running image (Primary) to the secondary image.
5. Set your secondary image to boot with Config2.
6. Download the new image to the switchâ s primary image.
7. Verify that your images and configuration are set correctly.
8. Reload the switch.


for commands, see the cli guide, chapter 3.
