problems upgrading firmware using EMC

I'm used to upgrade firmware for the switches using tftpd64. Simple program that just works, plain and simple.

Now I'm trying out the Extreme Management Center.

And it doesn't seem to work. The program pushes the upgrade and it errors out. If I check at the switch this is what I get the command from the logs.

Download image from hostname ip address 10.2.20.63 file name images/summitX/summitX-16.2.5.4-patch1-12.xos VR VR-Default

Then switch goes offline in the EMC, and after while the switch freezes, I can access the cli and everything but if I type anything other than sh run it doesn't give me any output. I have to do a hard reboot.

Thanks.

I found out it's something with the server. I'll try using the dedicated image you guys have for hyper-V
