    Dear All,

    Bonjour,

    can anyone help me how to upgrade the secondary firmware of a Access Point which is connected over a controller and please suggest me the steps to follow and do the process at the earliest.

    AP model : AP7522 (5.8.6.5-002R both primary and secondary Images)

    Controller : VX9000 (5.8.3.0-041R)

    Is that any possibility to upgrade the firmware over console access. ? ()

    Hi,

    you can update via CLI or GUI. Also update over the VX9000 is possible.

    What version do you want to install, 5.8.3.?

    Use via CLI "upgrade ". This updates the not running firmware bank. After you upgrade and reboot, you can do the same again. This updates the other firmware bank.

    upgrade ? FILE Location of firmware image
    usb1:/path/file

    URL Location of firmware image
    URLs: tftp://

    hi

    when connecting directly to the ap, use the commands Timo told you.

    you have to provide the imge file for the ap ether by a server (ftp/tftp/...) or by uploading the image to the controller.

    because the ap is connected to the controller i recommend this way.
    also it is possible to update other aps later

    as server i prefer ftp, works best for me till now.

    for upgrading by controller, go to cli of the controller:

    # device-upgrade load-image ftp://[u]:@

    Is it possible to upgrade firmware by Console access ?

    Yes, same way. But you need to provide the firmware file via network.
