HP2524 & firmware 5.65

Hello all,
I am new to the world of networking and Procurves, and I have a selection of 2524's all running v5.65 of the firmware. We seem to be seeing reboots on these switches and we are wondering if this firmware is a little flaky? Has anyone else had problems with this firmware?

Along the same lines has anyone put 5.69 out into the operating world - if so how are your switches acting? Should I be looking at putting the 5.69 firmware out over my whole range of 2524s?

thanks in advance!

We use a plethora of versions in our network. The 2524 is arguably the most solid unit HP made. Is the switch really booting, or do you get a trap that claims it does? I know that for some models the 32 bit uptime counter baffles at least our SNMP monitoring - I don't think this is the case for the 2524, though.

Hiya,
Thanks for your response, yes the unit 100% reboots itself I have seen it with my own eyes. Since the firmware upgrade (now 5.69) its been as solid as one would expect
