ICX 7450 firmware downgrade process?

New Contributor III

Where can I find some documentation on how to downgrade the switch firmware from 09.0.10c to the recommended 08.0.95j release?

I have issues with 802.1x implementation so I'd like to downgrade my firmware in the Dev environment.

Hello Rahul,


The downgrade process is similar to the upgrade process.

Please find the steps below for downgrading the switch:
How to download the Software? Go to:

1. Click on "download"

2. Choose the product (Ruckus ICX7xx Campus Switches)

3. Download the required version

Steps for downgrading via TFTP

1. Charge the software on a TFTP server, the TFTP server should have ping connectivity with the switch.

2. Get console access and test the ping connectivity with the command brocade# ping x.x.x.x. Note: if you have a stack get console access from the active controller.

3. Issue the Show flash command to confirm e version.

4. Upgrade the image software version on primary/secondary partition

Switch# copy tftp flash x.x.x.x <filename> primary/secondary ("show flash" to confirm)
