Installing the EFOS software

You can use this procedure to install the EFOS software on the Broadcom-supported BES-53248 cluster switch.

Steps

  1. Connect the BES-53248 cluster switch to the management network.
  2. Use the ping command to verify connectivity to the server hosting EFOS, licenses, and the RCF file.
    Example
    This example verifies that the switch is connected to the server at IP address 172.19.2.1:
    (cs2) # ping 172.19.2.1
    Pinging 172.19.2.1 with 0 bytes of data:
    
    Reply From 172.19.2.1: icmp_seq = 0. time= 5910 usec.
  3. Back up the current active image on cs2: show bootvar
    Example
    (cs2) # show bootvar
      
     Image Descriptions 
    
     active :  
     backup :  
    
    
     Images currently available on Flash 
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
     unit      active      backup        current-active    next-active 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    
        1      3.4.3.1     Q.10.22.1     3.4.3.1           3.4.3.1
    
    (cs2) # copy active backup
    Copying active to backup
    Management access will be blocked for the duration of the operation
    Copy operation successful
    
    (cs2) # show bootvar
    
    Image Descriptions 
    
     active :  
     backup :  
    
    
     Images currently available on Flash 
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
     unit      active      backup      current-active    next-active 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    
        1      3.4.3.1     3.4.3.1     3.4.3.1           3.4.3.1
    
    (cs2) #
    
    
  4. Verify the running version of the EFOS software: show version
    Example
    (cs2) # show version
    
    Switch: 1
    
    System Description............................. Quanta IX8-B 48x25GB SFP 8x100GB QSFP, 3.4.3.1, Linux 4.4.117-ceeeb99d, 2016.05.00.04

  5. Download the image file to the switch.
    Copying the image file to the active image means that when you reboot, that image establishes the running EFOS version. The previous image remains available as a backup.
    Example
    (cs2) # copy sftp://root@172.19.2.1//tmp/EFOS-3.4.3.3.stk active
    Remote Password:********
    
    Mode........................................... SFTP
    Set Server IP.................................. 172.19.2.1
    Path........................................... //tmp/
    Filename....................................... EFOS-3.4.3.3.stk
    Data Type...................................... Code            
    Destination Filename........................... active
    
    Management access will be blocked for the duration of the transfer
    Are you sure you want to start? (y/n) y
    SFTP Code transfer starting...
    
    
    File transfer operation completed successfully.
    
  6. Display the boot images for the active and backup configuration: show bootvar
    Example
    (cs2) # show bootvar
     
    Image Descriptions 
    
     active :  
     backup :  
    
    
     Images currently available on Flash 
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
     unit      active      backup     current-active        next-active 
    -------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    
        1     3.4.3.1     3.4.3.1            3.4.3.1            3.4.3.3
    
  7. Reboot the switch: reload
    Example
    (cs2) # reload
    
    The system has unsaved changes.
    Would you like to save them now? (y/n) y
    
    Config file 'startup-config' created successfully .
    Configuration Saved!
    System will now restart!
  8. Log in again and verify the new version of the EFOS software: show version
    Example
    (cs2) # show version
    
    Switch: 1
