BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches Only

Firmware images are bundled with ExtremeXOS software images. The bundled firmware images include Microcontroller binaries, System FPGA images and BootROM images for the MM, I/O, and Fabric modules.

ExtremeXOS automatically compares the existing firmware image flashed into the hardware with the firmware images bundled with the ExtremeXOS image when you download and install a new version of ExtremeXOS.

After a firmware image upgrade, messages are sent to the log. You can configure the switch to automatically upgrade the firmware when a different image is detected, or you can have the switch prompt you to confirm the upgrade process.
