WLC 5508 Software Upgrade

Hi There,

I have upgraded the software version of a WLC 5508 that was running version 6.0.182.0 to 7.0.235.0 version. Looking at the show sysinfo on the controller (as shown below), I notice the Field Recovery Image Version has the previous version. As far I understand that image version will kick in if the 'ESC' character is hit during the boot up process.

(Cisco Controller) >show sysinfo

Manufacturer's Name.............................. Cisco Systems Inc.
Product Name..................................... Cisco Controller
Product Version.................................. 7.0.235.0
Bootloader Version............................... 1.0.1
Field Recovery Image Version..................... 6.0.182.0
Firmware Version................................. FPGA 1.3, Env 1.6, USB console 1.27
Build Type....................................... DATA + WPS

Can someone please explain if the FRIV should be upgraded, if yes what is the best way?  or otherwise if it should be ok to leave as is?

Best Regards,

You need to install the FUS image 1.7.0.0. This image can be found in the downloads for your wlc This will upgrade that and the USB, etc. it takes about 30 minutes to complete.

Take it from Scott.

Here is the FUS image link:

Before there was an independent recovery image for 7.0.116.0 but I can not see it now!

Anyway, FUS should do the work.
