Upgrading the System Software Using the BootLoad Menu

Upgrading the System Software Using the BootLoad Menu

Networking Requirements

As shown in Figure 11-1, a PC is connected to the console interface on a switch and allows users to log in to the switch using terminal emulation software. The network adapter on the PC is connected to the Ethernet interface (management interface) on the switch.

The system software on the switch is faulty, and you cannot log in. To address this issue, you need to use the Ethernet submenu under the BootLoad menu to upload system software and specify it as the next startup system software. In this way, the switch can load the system software and start an upgrade.

NOTE:

In this example, HyperTerminal is used as terminal emulation software. If other third-party terminal emulation software is used, see the corresponding software user guide or online help.

Configuration Roadmap

  1. Deploy an FTP server and upload the target system software to the FTP working directory. In this example, configure the PC as the FTP server.
  2. Restart the switch and access the BootLoad menu.
  3. Set FTP parameters on the switch so that the switch can communicate with the FTP server. Use FTP to upload the target system software to the flash memory on the switch.
  4. In the modify ethernet interface boot parameter, configure the uploaded system software as the next startup system software.

Procedure

  1. Configure the PC as the FTP server and copy the system software of the switch to the FTP working directory.

    # Configure the IP address, user name, password, and working directory for the FTP server.

    Run an FTP server program on the PC, for example, wftpd32. Choose Security > Users/rights.... In the dialog box that is displayed as shown in Figure 11-2, click New User.... In the dialog box that is displayed, set the user name to user and password to huawei. Set Home Directory: to D:\BootLoad. Click Done to close the dialog box. Set the IP address of the PC to 192.168.1.6 and mask to 255.255.255.0.
