Hi ram,
please refer to the Upgrade/Downgrade Matrix in 6.4.3.R01 Upgrade Instructions and AOS 6.3.4.R01 Upgrade Instructions for software compatibility when upgrading !!!!!

9700:
Step 1
6.1.5.479.R01->6.3.4.R01 GA
6.1.5.354.R02->6.3.4.265.R01
Step 2
6.3.4.R01 GA->6.4.3.R01 GA
6850:
Step 1
6.1.3.719.R01->6.3.4.R01 GA
6.1.3.601.R01->6.3.4.265.R01
Step 2

Hi,
I assume you have not any OmniVista installed, it's pretty simple to upgrade AOS Switches using OV,else try this and this.

If you prefer cli approach here you find Ftp baby steps from workstation to switch by generic upgrade.
Before ftp you need probably aaa authentication ftp local on your AOS switches.
Image files must be placed in /flash/working!
Upgrading steps described in detail in attached docs. Follow is an output:
Upgrading the Image Files
Follow the steps below to upgrade the image files to 6.3.4.R01.
1 Download the 6.3.4.R01 upgrade files from the Alcatel-Lucent Service and Support web site to your PC.
2 FTP the following 6.3.4.R01 image files to the /flash/working directory of the primary switch: K2os.img, Kadvrout.img, Kbase.img, Keni.img, Ksecu.img.
3 Log into the switch. In dual redundant configurations you must log into the primary switch. 4 Reload the switch from the working directory.
-> reload working no rollback-timeout
YOU NEED EXACTLY KNOW WHAT ARE YOU DOING, IT MAY BE NOT SO GOOD FOR YOUR DEVICE!

Hi,
if you wish to update from 6.1.3 to 6.3.1 consult this Techtip. For stack needed:

Code: Select all

update backup miniboot all 
update default miniboot all 
update bootrom all
[/size]But you wish to know how to upgrade the miniboot from 6.1.3 to 6.3.4.265.
So in early attached 6850_rel6_3_4_r01_upgrade.pdf you can find on site 14:
upgrade_to_6.3.4.png
To verify that the NI modules were successfully upgraded, use the show ni as shown on site 17-18 or show ni 2 for slot 2.

Hi ram,
listing /flash directory:

Code: Select all

ls /flash
You should see ku-boot.bin and kminiboot.uboot
Simple remove these if update successfully completed:

Code: Select all

rm /flash/ku-boot.bin 
rm /flash/kminiboot.uboot
Then reload the switch:

Code: Select all

reload working no rollback-timeout
