Stack firmware mismatch

 

When we add/replace new unit to stack, firmware version on new switch can be different than firmware version of entire stack.

In that situation all ports in new switch will be in "Detach" status and users cannot use them.

 

fe.2.1                 Detach  Up      10.0M     half    BaseT RJ45
fe.2.2                 Detach  Up      10.0M     half    BaseT RJ45
fe.2.3                 Detach  Up      10.0M     half    BaseT RJ45
fe.2.4                 Detach  Up      10.0M     half    BaseT RJ45

 

To fix this situation we have to do the following steps:

 

  •  check stack status and umember in stack which requires firmware upgrade

->show  switch

Switch(su)->show  switch
        Management   Preconfig   Plugged-in        Switch             Code
   Switch    Status     Model ID    Model ID          Status            Version
------ ------------ ----------- ----------- --------------------- --------------
1        Mgmt Switch  C2H124-48   C2H124-48   OK                    05.02.16.0008
2      Stack Member C2H124-48   C2H124-48   Code Version Mismatch 05.02.01.0006

  • synchronize firmware version on  stack member to Mgmt switch

(su)->set switch copy-fw destination-system 2


Switch(su)->set switch copy-fw destination-system 2
Are you sure you want to copy firmware? (y/n) y

Code transfer completed successfully.

  • reload stack member(in that case switch number 2)

(su)->reset 2

(su)->reset 2
Are you sure you want to reload the switch? (y/n) y
Reloading switch 2.

 

  • check stack status after reload

(su)->show  switch
        Management   Preconfig   Plugged-in        Switch             Code
   Switch    Status     Model ID    Model ID          Status            Version
------ ------------ ----------- ----------- --------------------- --------------
1        Mgmt Switch  C2H124-48   C2H124-48   OK                    05.02.16.0008
2      Stack Member C2H124-48   C2H124-48   OK                    05.02.16.0008

  • check port status

fe.2.1                 Down    Up      N/A       N/A     BaseT RJ45
fe.2.2                 Down    Up      N/A       N/A     BaseT RJ45
fe.2.3                 Down    Up      N/A       N/A     BaseT RJ45
fe.2.4                 Down    Up      N/A       N/A     BaseT RJ45

 

New stack member is ready to use
