ERS 3526T software & firmware
« on: July 26, 2018, 06:38:12 AM »
We have a couple of 3526T switches which require firmware and software upgrades.. This was something I planned to do a while back, and have since lost some notes I made :-(

I need some guidance on the upgrade paths please.

Please see current versions below:

A-3526T#show boot diag
Unit  Diag Image Active Diag
----- ---------- -----------
1     1.0.0.6     1.0.0.6     
# - Unit requires reboot for new Diag to be made operational.


B-3526T#show boot image
Unit  Agent Image Active Image
----- ----------- ------------
1     5.0.1.006   5.0.1.006   
* - Unit requires reboot for new Active Image to be made operational.


Back in March I downloaded 3500_10015_diag.bin, but also have 3500_5308_diag.bin saved.
For software I downloaded 3500_520005s.img and 3500_536015s.img.

Is 10015 the latest and correct firmware to upgrade to, is there an upgrade path, or can i upgrade directly?
With software, will I need 5.1 before I jump to 520005s?

Thanks

To add to this, I can see from the Extreme Networks portal, that 3500_53006_diag.bin was released in June 2015, is this this the next version up form 3500_10015_diag.bin?

I have done direct upgrades without intermediate paths with the same revisions as you and didn't have issues.  Avaya messed that up in the 4800 series only (that I know of) where you had to do an intermediate upgrade path or else you'd have to perform a recovery on it after your upgrade.
Warning: If you are going to the 5.3.6xx software revision do not perform the upgrade if you are using 10 Gig DACs since you'll likely break them.
I'll be staying on my 3500_535009s.img for as long as I responsibly can, thank you very much Extreme  >:(

Are you using 3500_5308_diag.bin firmware?

Also 3500_536014.img is available from the extreme website to download.

I use 3500_5308_diag.bin and 3500_536015s.img across the board for all my switches in the 3500 series.
