Procurve 3500yl firmware update.

Guys

I have been updating the firmware on my procurve switch and I'm now doing the 3500yl's.

I have been able to do this in stages as they were out of date by someway. I'm having a problem updating from; -

K.13.71 (Boot ROM k.12.17) to K.14.47.

The error I get in Procurve Manager is : -

Error: Software image file K_14_47.swi not found at the agent.

The zipped filed exists in the download directory on the server so it should work. As it has been for the other switches I have done.

Has anyone else encountered this type of issue??

Any help would be great.

Thx.

Re: Procurve 3500yl firmware update.

Hi Mark,

1. Do you have the newest procurve_firmware.prp file?
2. In the .prp-file does the package file have the ".zip" extension?
PackageFileName=yl-zl-6600-3500-Software-K1447.zip
FileName=K_14_47.swi

In an earlier .prp file this was missing for the 5406 update.

Thx for the reply Jaap & Javed.

The version of PCM is 3.1.

It seems that you are correct. The .zip is missing from the end of the package name. Do you know where i can download the latest prp file from? I can't seem to do it from within PCM at the moment. So i would like to download it manually. Thx for all your help.

Hi Mark,

The newest .prp can be found at ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/networking/software

This is not always so however. E.g. the newest firmware for the 54xx & 35xx is K_14_60.swi.
You can just change the entry in the .prp-file you need. The xtra info you need can be found in the files in the .zip file.

Hope this helps.
