Brocade ADX - How to perform an image upgrade
Below shows the basic steps for upgrading a Brocade ADX.
First of all the image is copied from a TFTP server.
Note : The option 'secondary' is used to ensure that the primary image is not overwritten.
adx# copy tftp flash [tftp server ip] ASR12301c.bin secondary
Next, check the image has been uploaded correctly by checking the flash.
Active management module:
Compressed Pri Code size = 25666421, Version 12.4.00dT403 Dec 6 2012 19:36:14 PST label: ASR12400d
Compressed Sec Code size = 25810297, Version 12.4.00jT403 Aug 19 2013 21:13:21 PDT label: ASR12400j
Used Configuration Flash Size=27053, Max Configuration Flash Size=1441790
Next the configuration is set to boot from the secondary image.
Note : You MUST perform this within the configuration mode. Otherwise the ADX will reboot immediately from the secondary image.
adx(config)#boot system flash secondary
adx# wr mem
Next reboot the system.
Once the device has reloaded run the version command to confirm that the device is running the new version of code.
adx# sh version | i System Version
