hp 2610 firmware update problems

while trying to update the firmware on my switches i run in to many issues, the cli version will not commit, the web interface will not either and the procurve software updater states no new software available. However all of these function for other switches on the network. My question is where do you save the firmware file for the auto software updater tp pick it up, i have tried the usual places but to no avail.

Hi

Use your favorite TFTP server and on the switch do

copy tftp flash flash

and you should be good.

For instance
copy tftp flash 192.168.13.13 H_10_74.swi flash

Re: hp 2610 firmware update problems

i compare this problem with some encounterd with cisco equipment.

- check if there is enough space in flash.
if not you might need to delete the old image first before copying the new one.
- how did you retrieve the image, if copied by ftp, it might have been damaged (not binary).
- As explorer standard hides file-extensions
see if the file extension of the image is not "missing" (no file extension), if the file has the wrong extension it would explain why the procurve software updater states no new software available.
(and possibly also the cli and web procedures fail).
- cisco supplies different types of image.
".tar" is better suitable for upgrade using the web-interface, while the ".bin" is better for the cli (copy tftp).
