Get into the firmware upgrade wizard and select a lower number software.
So you use the upgrade wizard but in real it's a downgrade.
Just tried it with my D2 from 6.03.13 to 6.03.12
I don't understand, I can't select a lower number software because It doesn't appear lower number software.

I can't tell from the screenshot which software is currently running on your switch but let's assume the worst case that you've 6.71.05 on it.
So on the right window of your screenshot you've 2 software bundles on none of them is lower then 6.71.05.
In that case you need to manualy download a lower software from the Extreme webpage and then upload it to Netsight Inventory Manager.
After that step the "new" old software is available in the software selection window.
You have the reason, we need to manually download a lower software from the Extreme web and upload again this software to Inventory Mngr.
I don't know why don't recognize old firmware, maybe from the last upgrade of Inventory Mngr.

Thanks a lot Ronald.
