Upgrade Brocade VDX from USB

Brocade VDX NOS 2.0.x and NOS 2.1.x admin guide and cli ref says this is the command to update the NOS firmware on VDX:

firmware download usb directory firmware/nos2.1.0

It's not. Drop the 'firmware/' in the path. Correct and working (from 2.0.0 to 2.1.0 at least) is:

firmware download usb directory nos2.1.0

I believe you need to have a Brocade USB. Perhaps it works with other sticks with the same folder layout, I don't know.

And by the way, there are no release.plist file in the root of the nos2.1.0 folder.

Brocade USB folder layout - one folder 'brocade' in the root and four subfolders:

  • brocade/
    • config
    • firmware
    • firmwarekey
    • support
