How to Update IOS on Cisco 3650 Stack

Posted by paris on Jul 29, 2017 in Networking

Find the latest Firmware : https://software.cisco.com/download/release.html?mdfid=284846029&softwareid=282046477&release=3.3.0SE&flowid=45549

Setup TFTP Server ( Download : http://tftpd32.jounin.net/tftpd32_download.html )

Copy Bin file to TFTP Directory

3650-SW1#copy tftp flash

3650-SW1#Address or name of remote host []? 10.1.1.250
3650-SW1#Source filename []? cat3k_caa-universalk9.SPA.03.06.06.E.152-2.E6.bin
3650-SW1#Destination filename [cat3k_caa-universalk9.SPA.03.03.01.SE.150-1.EZ1.bin]?<enter>

3850-SW1#software install file flash:cat3k_caa-universalk9.SPA.03.06.06.E.152-2.E6.bin switch 1-4

The install should ask you to reload which will restart the whole stack ( All Stack members should run the same IOS ) 

If the SSH console disconnects during the install progress you will need to do an Manual Reload Command

How to Find Driver version of HBA / Firmware / BIOS in Vmware

Posted by paris on Jan 25, 2017 in Fixes

 

I tried to use VMwares Article : https://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1027206

However this command was giving me nothing : vmkload_mod -s HBADriver |grep Version

I had to use the command:

 
/usr/lib/vmware/vmkmgmt_keyval/vmkmgmt_keyval -d

I can see the names of the NIC, here: vmhba3 and vmhba4

With the command: 

 
/usr/lib/vmware/vmkmgmt_keyval/vmkmgmt_keyval -l -i vmhba4/qlogic

I can see this information:

  • Name: QMH2562
  • Firmware 8.01.02
  • Flash firmware level: 7.03.00
  • Bios: 3.24
  • Driver version: 2.1.27.0

the type 11 controller is not supported by this firmware

Posted by paris on Oct 6, 2016 in Research

Was recently trying to update a PS6000 SAN from Firmware upgrade Failure from V5.0.8 to V6.0.7

FYI when trying firmware updates make sure you have the passive controller setup , as this will take the controllers offline during the update.

The error displayed was the type 11 controller is not supported by this firmware

 Upgrade your 5.0.8 to 5.2.x first and than to 6.0.7.

iLO HP ML380 G7 Certificate Error SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT / ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH

Posted by paris on Jun 12, 2016 in Fixes

iLO-3-Image[1]On trying to get to it in Firefox I was presented with 

SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT 

On trying to get to it through Chrome I was presented with

This site can’t provide a secure connection

10.0.0.2 uses an unsupported protocol.
ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH

The client and server don't support a common SSL protocol version or cipher suite. This is likely to be caused when the server needs RC4, which is no longer considered secure.

We tried through CLI : 

load -source http://webserverip/iso/ilo2_229.bin /map1/firmware1

However this was giving us errors for some reason

We found a workaround in Internet Explorer is to disable TLS 1.2 (Tools >
Options > Advanced > UNTICK Use TLS1.2). 

After Restarting IE , it logged us into the ilo , however this was not the stop of the problems , upgrading to the latest firmware 1.57 gave us errors

We had to update to 1.28 first , then we could upgrade to the latest , below is a link to someone has all the links to the correct BIN files

Upgrading Firmware on a HP Switch 5406zl(J8697A)

Posted by paris on Mar 7, 2013 in Research

J8699ARecently a HP 5406 Switch randomly crashed in the middle of a working day. A reboot fixed this however , we wanted to update the firmware from V12.16 to the latest version  K.15.09.0012, ROM K.15.28

The link to the latest firmware is here :

https://h10145.www1.hp.com/Downloads/SoftwareReleases.aspx?ProductNumber=J8697A&lang=en&cc=us&prodSeriesId=1827663

After backing up all the config, We downloaded the K.15.09.0012 firmware to start with. These switches have Primary and Secondary firmwares which allows some fault tollerence when it comes to an upgrade. If the Primary firmware fails it will switch to secondary so you can reflash

Upon trying to upload the K.15.09.0012, ROM K.15.28 via the web interface , it error-ed on Internet Explorer and Firefox with no immediate error. The next method we tried was a Telnet Firmware Upgrade , a bit more long winded.

We setup a TFPT server to be able to download the

Just download this free TFTP Server tool and setup defaults and copy the firmware to C;\TFPT ( or your default location )

Next we telneted into the Switch , and used the Command Menu to bring up the Switch Menu

We then went to Download OS , entered the TFTP IP of the PC with the file and the file name , and it brought back

Aborted, File Error

OK so the switch is bouncing back the file , probably because it’s referencing something with the current version ( The web interface should of been nice and told us this! )

After checking the ReadMe for the 15 upgrade , we found the following :

(BootROM K.12.12 – K.12.14)  Update and reload into software version K.13.58 or K.13.68

So we updated to K.13.68 (for BootROM updates only) via telnet which worked , and then updated to K.15.09.0012, ROM K.15.28
