How Do I Upgrade a Switch?

How Do I Upgrade a Switch?


Obtain the system software package (.cc file) and patch file (.pat file).
  • To obtain a system software package (.cc file), log in to Huawei official website, choose a CE series switch, click the Downloads tab page, and select the software version.

  • The method of obtaining a patch file (.pat file) is the same as that of obtaining a system software package.

Upgrade Process

  1. Upload the system software package and patch file to the switch. For details on how to upload a file, see How Do I Enable the FTP Server on the Device?.

  2. Configure the system software package for next startup. The following uses a CE12800 as an example, if the CE12800 has two MPUs, copy the system software package to the standby MPU and specify the next startup file for the standby MPU.
    <HUAWEI> copy slave#flash:
    <HUAWEI> startup system-software all
  3. Configure the patch file for next startup.
    <HUAWEI> startup patch patch.pat all
  4. Restart the switch.
    <HUAWEI> reboot

It is recommended that you upgrade member switches in a stack system respectively.
