Without a tftp server?

I already figured this out for a single device but would like to now how to proceed in a stack environment?

Instructions:


  1. Login to the gui of the device.
  2. go to apps --> file manager and upload the .XOS file. You can can get the firmware from: ( Make sure u select the right model number for the firmware.)https://extremeportal.for ce.com/ExtrProductDetail?id=01t34000003vzmbAAA
  3. Then press install and then install and reboot.
Please let me know!

Hi Roan de Jong,

The upgrade process for a stack is the exact same for a standalone switch. The download/install will automatically happen on all switches in the stack with no additional commands needed. Be sure to reboot the entire stack at the same time to complete the upgrade, you don't want slots on different versions.

Specifically using the web GUI:

I hope that helps!
