Re: Suggested Firmware version

Hi @Muthukumar1 !

In general latest versions contain most recent bugfixes, so I would stick to this strategy. However, taking into account a couple of recent cases I have been dealing with, I have to correct my recommendation for the 5710 - use R2612P08 instead of R2702. R2702 has some issues with QSFP transceivers, so stick to the R2612P08 for now.

For the rest of the devices I would stick to the latest versions. But reading release notes always helps - nobody knows your setup and requirements better than you.

Re: Suggested Firmware version

Hi team,

  when upgrading the software on HPE 5900 i am geting the following error

<HPE>tftp 192.168.100.2 get 5900_5920-CMW710-R2432P06.ipe
Invalid source address.

 

IP's reachable both side( Switch to TFTP server-Laptop &  TFTP server-Laptop to  Switch )

I have tried with Swith Mgmt port and assigened the ip for one of the vlan not vlan 1

I have tried to upload the software as standalone switch not IRF

Could you suggest on this.

regards

Muthukumar

Re: Suggested Firmware version

It seems like you don't have any Vlan-interface configured with IP address and in UP state since it complains about source address.

Post here an output of following commands and I will check what can be the issue:

display ip routing-table
ping 192.168.100.2

Re: Suggested Firmware version

I confirm - M-GE is up and has an IP address assigned. Also the TFTP host is reachable by ICMP... Let's try this:

tftp 192.168.100.2 get 5900_5920-CMW710-R2432P06.ipe source ip 192.168.100.1
