Upgrading HP GbE2c to 5.1.3 software
« on: May 04, 2011, 11:57:56 AM »
Here's the order you need to following if you want to upgrade an HP GbE2c to release 5.1.3;

Firmware version 1.0.0 must be upgraded to 1.1.0 before upgrading to 2.0.0.
Firmware version must be at a minimum of 2.0.4 to upgrade directly to version 5.1.3.


The HP GbE2c is a Layer2/3 blade in the HP C7000 enclosure which was original developed by Alteon which was ultimately sold to Blade Technologies.

Cheers!

Hi,

I had a slight problem upgrading my GbE2c switches recently to 5.1.3 boot kernel.
HP's upgrade tool kept on locking up so ended up using the CLI instead :(

When I upgraded the boot kernel to 5.1.3 from 2.0.4 the GbE2c switches seem to lose their management.  Local console is unresponsive.  Only a physical reset of the card brought everything back as expected.  I was then able to upgrade the image to 5.1.3 successfully  ;D

(I can't get away from you guys.  Google a HP switch issues and I still get taken back to this site..)

Just a question. HP doesn't do a good job at showing all the previous versions.  Does anyone know how many releases there were between v2 and v528. 

was it mostly bug fixes or feature additions?

Are we talking about the GbE2 or the GbE2c?

There were a lot of 2.x releases, a few 5.1 releases and a few 5.2 releases. The major versions added new features while the minor versions addressed bugs and general compatibility issues.
