Matrix N-Series DFE
Firmware 7.11.01.0025 and higher
Upgraded DFE from pre-7.x to 7.11.01.0025+ firmware.
Before upgrading, please review the 7.x firmware background information in 'Transitioning to Firmware v7.0'.
Version 7.11.01.0025 and subsequent versions utilize a new internal "binary" format for storing configurations. In addition, some of the CLI command structure has changed.
Version 7.11.01.0025 or newer firmware will clear an internal configuration that was written in the older format. To avoid loss of configuration during an upgrade you must take specific steps to create and restore an ASCII configuration file, which also automatically converts the previous command syntax to the new syntax. Simply upgrading the firmware will not perform this set of important tasks.
Here is the recommended procedure for upgrading from pre-7.x to 7.11.01.0025+ firmware:
- Install and run 6.x version 6.11.01.0040 or higher (9430).[list]
