Hi there,

 

We are about to upgrade our controllers from DOT 7.3.5 to 8.1.2P4 to take advantage of 64-bit aggregates.

 

I notice that the MB firmware is now not included in the DOT 8 install package and is meant to upgraded in another/seperate install.

 

As this is happening in our production environment, I am trying to minimise the downtime/outage to our client (as we have 100+ controllers).

 

We have MB firmware that is behind the recommended version (but not by much) and I would like to upgrade the MB FW while i am doing the DOT upgrade as well.

 

My question is - can i install the MB firmware and the DOT upgrade and then do one reboot of the controllers only. I do not want to have to install the MB FW reboot, and then do the DOT upgrade and then have to reboot again a 2nd time.

 

Has anyone done this? Can anyone answer this? If so much appreciated.

 

Hardware: FAS3140, 3170, 3270

DOT version (current) 7.3.5 & 7.3.6

DOT version (upgrade) 8.1.2P4

MB FW (current) FAS3140/3170 - 4.4.0, FAS3270 - 5.1.1

MB FW (upgrade)  FAS3140/3170 - 4.5.0, FAS3270 - 5.2.1
