How to Update Force10 S50n Firmware

You’ll need a tftp program installed on your desktop.

Copy the new firmware to your tftp server folder.

Here is the command to upgrade the system

upgrade system tftp://192.168.1.xxx/FTOS-SB-8.4.2.7.bin

Output will look like this:

Force10#upgrade system tftp://192.168.1.xxx/FTOS-SB-8.4.2.7.bin

Force10#

 

You can use the serial cable or ssh into the switch to do this operation.

Don’t forget to write, before issuing the reload command.

Here’s an example of my running config:

force10#show running-config
