No export command in Nexus 1010

Hi all,

We want to do a backup of a virtual-service-blade in a Nexus 1010. The document we are following is:

What we are supposed to do fron this document is to create a file named export-import, to shutdown the primary o secondary virtual service blades, and after it, to execute the command "export primary" o "export secondary", depending on which vsb we want to export.

========= DETAILED STEP IN THE DOCUMENT ================

n1010-1(config-vsb-config)# export  secondary

Note: export started..

Note: please be patient..

Note: please be patient..

Note: please be patient..

Note: export  completed...n1010-1(config-vsb-config)#


The problem is that this "export" command is not available in our nexus 1010.

=========== NEXUS 1010 ===============================

N1010-MGMT(config-vsb-config)# export secondary


% Invalid command at '^' marker.



N1010-MGMT(config-vsb-config)# ?

   with 14665728 kB of memory.

  Processor Board ID T023D700201

We don't know which can be the problem, wheter it can be a bug in the software, or we are doing something wrong.

Thank you

No export command in Nexus 1010

The export command was a new feature added in the 4.2(1)SP1(3) version of code. Your 1010 is one rev lower.

You'll need to upgrade the code on the 1010 to the latest code to get the export command.

The upgrade is pretty straight forward. Just download the code and follow the upgrade guide.
