I'm having trouble updating my new blade which came with version 2.5(1)S2a. I have downloaded all the upgrades for it to an ftp server. Each service pack calls for the previous service pack so the first upgrade to install is the 2.5-2 upgrade. However, the blade wants a file that starts with "IDSM-sp" which I can't find in all the cab files for the 2.5-2 upgrade. I haven't tried any of the other upgrades as they all call for an earlier version to be installed first. Can someone please suggest to me what I'm supposed to do now? Or does anyone have any helpful documentation? The switch is running IOS software.
NOTE: To go from 2.5 to 3.0 requires a re-imaging of the Application Partion using Cab files rather than simply Service pack upgrades.
Step 1 in the above link has you install the IDSMk9-a-3.0-1-S4-.... Cab files.
Then Step 4 has you install the latest IDSMk9-sp-3.0-5-S23.exe Service pack.
Once you've completed these instructions then you can install the latest IDSM
Signature Udpate IDSM-sig-3.0-5-S39.exe. Read the readme for installation notes.
NOTE: Once the 3.0(5)S23 Service Pack is installed you can install the latest 3.0(5)S39 Signature Update without having to install any of the signature udpates in between because the 3.0(5)S39 is cumulative of all of the signature updates since 3.0(5)S23.
