I have had to do this a lot to get the firmware up to date from a factory shipped ICX series switch. No big deal and this should be expected, as firmware updates come out all the time. POE is no different. You just need to do the update on the switch. Here is how to do this on the second unit in the stack, where 192.168.73.4 is my TFTP server:
Core#inline power install-firmware stack-unit 2 tftp 192.168.70.2 fcx_poeplus_02.1.0.fw
This will update the POE firmware on the second unit. Do the same for any other units you need to upgrade.

I hope this blog serves you well. -- May The Lord bless you and keep you. May He shine His face upon you, and bring you peace.

glad to hear Tom. :)Delete
To see the firmware version of the POE Firmware :ReplyDelete
sh inline power detail | begin Firmware
You can also use scp to update it:ReplyDelete
scp -oKexAlgorithms=+diffie-hellman-group1-sha1 firmware/path user@IPADDRESS:firmware:stackid:1
the "-oKexAlgorithms=+diffie-hellman-group1-sha1" is needed because current versions of openssh don't enable the older algorithm by default.
As of 08.0.70 POE firmware is done automatically as a part of code updates after the system boots into the new code. This is good to note since POE devices will be offline during update.ReplyDelete
From release notes:
• Auto PoE firmware upgrade—PoE firmware is bundled with FastIron image and is automatically
installed or upgraded as part of unit bootup. That is, manual intervention is not required to
choose the corresponding firmware version for each FastIron image version.
