Nexus7009 Howto Install NON NPE NX-OS on NPE installed system

I bought 2 SUP2Es; they are factory installed with

Software

  BIOS:      version 2.11.0

  kickstart: version 6.2(2)

  system:    version 6.2(2)

  BIOS compile time:       01/09/2013

  kickstart image file is: bootflash:///n7000-s2-kickstart-npe.6.2.2.bin

  kickstart compile time:  7/9/2013 20:00:00 [08/14/2013 07:51:20]

  system image file is:    bootflash:///n7000-s2-dk9-npe.6.2.2.bin

  system compile time:     7/9/2013 20:00:00 [08/14/2013 10:27:51]


I want to upgrade the system to NX-OS

6.2(2a ) 

n7000-s2-dk9.6.2.2a.bin

Using the following command I get an error message

switch# install all kickstart bootflash:n7000-s2-kickstart.6.2.2a.bin system bootflash:n7000-s2-dk9.6.2.2a.bin

Installer will perform compatibility check first. Please wait.

Verifying image bootflash:/n7000-s2-kickstart.6.2.2a.bin for boot variable "kickstart".

[####################] 100% -- SUCCESS

Verifying image bootflash:/n7000-s2-dk9.6.2.2a.bin for boot variable "system".

[#                   ]   0% -- FAIL.

Return code 0x40930077 (Install is not supported between NPE and non-NPE system image).

Pre-upgrade check failed. Return code 0x40930011 (Image verification failed).

HOW CAN I CHANGE TO NON NPE Softwareversion ?

Thanks in advance

Hi Manfred,

Please try and change the boot variables, "copy run start" and reload the device. They are located toward the bottom of the configuration. Let me know if that resolves the situation.

Thanks

Hi Manfred,

Hi Manfred,

My answer maybe to late but I still would like to share to another guy. If you would like to change from NPE to Non NPE, you just do following below step;

- change boot kickstart [bootflash:n7000-s2-kickstart-xxxx.bin]

- change boot system [bootflash:n7000-s2-dk9-xxx.bin]

- save configuration 

- reload and wait

- update epld by [bootflash:n7000-epld-xxxx.img]

Regards,

Narin
