FoxGate Switch Firmware Update

I will use the Foxgate S6224-S2 switch as an example.

We upload the firmware files to the tftp server and execute the following commands on the switch:

1) Copy the bootloader from the tftp server to the switch and reboot it.

copy tftp:// boot.rom
copy tftp:// config.rom

2) Copy the firmware file from the tftp server to the switch and reboot it again.

copy tftp:// nos.img

The switch should boot from the newly downloaded firmware. You can view its version by running on the switch:

show version

Done, the switch settings after the firmware have not been changed.
