Force10 Switch: software upgrade

Make sure that both RPMs must contain the same software label number before the upgrade. Also the following steps apply if the bootcode version is

Force10#copy file-url flash://filepath boot-image synchronize-rpm
Where file-url is the location of the source(image) file.

Force10#redundancy force-failover rpm

Peer RPM's SW version is different but HA compatible.
Failover can be done by warm or hitless upgrade.
All linecards will be reset during warm upgrade.
Specify hitless upgrade or warm upgrade [confirm hitless/warm]:warm 
Proceed with warm upgrade [confirm yes/no]:yes

Now Standby RPM will mastership of the system.

Warm upgrade means that a software upgrade requires a reset of the line cards and SFMs and forwarding will be interrupted.

Hitless upgrade requires the first three release numbers must be the same, for example: upgrading from to is a hitless upgrade
