New ERS 4000 Software v5.6.4
« on: December 11, 2013, 03:15:10 AM »
Seems we have a bug-fix release for the v5.6 code stream on the ERS 4000 units.  I count 20 fixes in it and a couple of them are needed.

Updated a lot of switches on friday to 5.6.3 :(

Hmmm looks like I have to schedule another downtime for the next update to 5.6.4....
Itīs always the networks fault!

Yes, timing appears to be everything!
That's why on our 5600's I'm sticking with 6.2.6 until 6.3.3 comes out.  I have some 6.3.2 deployed to make sure at the base level it's OK though.

I saw some documents today that were talking about software v6.6 for the ERS 5000 line.  I suspect we might see that code come out soon.

I found those over a week ago and sent them to our Avaya SE.  Since I found them under training materials, I didn't say anything...
Some disappointing news in the document though.

We have update our switch's park on holidays on 5.6.3 (024) and we don't have problem.
I think 5.6.3 for ERS4500 is a good release and i don't think we change for 5.6.4.

There are quite a few annoying bugs in 5.6.3... if you are graphing port utilization you'll have issues;

Good Luck!
