Feature Limitations

Before USB-based deployment

  • Only the switches using SRUH, SRUK, MFUX, SRUE or SRUC main control units support USB-based deployment.
  • USB-based deployment is mutually exclusive with the EasyDeploy functions.
  • Before using a USB flash drive to upgrade a device, ensure that the device can start successfully and has sufficient space to store the required files.
  • Devices to be deployed are unconfigured devices and do not have security measures configured. Therefore, when onsite non-professionals perform deployment task, ensure that they do not perform any unauthorized operations on the devices, USB flash drive, and deployment files.

  • Only one USB flash drive can be connected to a device.
  • The USB flash drive must be connected to the master MPU of a device. If it is connected to the standby MPU, the USB-based deployment process will not start. In a cluster, the USB flash drive must be connected to the system master MPU of the cluster.
  • The file system format of the USB flash drive must be FAT32, and standard for the USB interface is USB2.0. USB flash drives from different vendors differ in model compatibility and drivers. If a USB flash drive cannot be used, try to replace it with another one from a mainstream vendor. Switches support a maximum of 128 GB USB flash drives.

During USB-based deployment

  • Before saving files to a USB flash drive, disable the write-protection function of the USB flash drive.
  • Do not power off the device during a USB-based deployment process. Otherwise, the upgrade fails or the device cannot start.
  • Do not remove the USB flash drive before the USB-based deployment process is complete. Otherwise, data in the USB flash drive may be corrupted.
  • If upgrade files include a configuration file, you are advised to configure an encryption password for the configuration file, and enable HMAC check to enhance security.
  • In USB-based deployment, the deployment may fail because the device configuration is not restored. In this case, you can remove and then install the USB to resolve this problem.
