Stack ICX 7250 Firmware Upgrade

Hello,

We have 2 Ruckus ICX 7250, which are stacked. Version of Firmware is SPR08030h. We would Like to do upgrade up to SPR08090mc (Non-UFI). I'm interesting about upgrade procedure and have some of questions:

1 - Do I need to load new Firmware to both switches? (Right now as I see there is no option to load firmware to particularly device). 

2 - As I know, firstly I need to do upgrade up to 08080f, is it correct? 

3 - I have a lot etherchannels (Lags, both Dynamics and Statics). In existing version of Firmware they are done in one way and in new version in a different way. Will it automatically re-change from old configure way to new or I need to reconfigure etherchannels?  

4 - I also have a lot "Dual-Mode" configured ports. Will it automatically re-change from old configure way to new (Untagged + Tagged)?

I'm waiting your helps. Thanks!

Hey @irakli_gvishian 

I just replied above regarding UFI vs. non-UFI. Here is the whole process laid out for you to upgrade to UFI image:

While on 8030-8070 the commands will be:

copy tftp flash <ip address of TFTP server> <boot-code-image> boot
copy tftp flash <ip address of TFTP server> <OS-code-image> <primary/secondary>

Example for 8030 > 8080f (assuming router code and ICX7250)

copy tftp flash 192.168.1.250 spz10114.bin boot
copy tftp flash 192.168.1.250 SPR08080f.bin primary
wr mem
*reload into 8080f*

Once booted to 8080f:

*wait for POE firmware upgrade if applicable - happens automatically and can be seen on console or 'show log'*

wr mem (this is necessary to ensure your configuration is upgraded as syntax can change)
copy tftp flash <ip address of TFTP server> <UFI-code-image> <primary/secondary>

Example for 8080f > 8090mc (assuming router code and ICX7250 again)

copy tftp flash 192.168.1.250 SPR08090mcufi.bin primary
wr mem
*reload into 8090mc*
wr mem
*if needed, POE firmware will upgrade again*

This is not recommended

@BenBeck Then I would like to assume steps:

0 - Save configuration (Write memory)

1 - Load to the stack new Bootrom image

2 - Load to the stack new Firmware (08080f Non-UFI)

3 - Reboot stack

4 - Load new Bootrom to the stack

5 - Load to the stack new Firmware (SPR08090mc Non-UFI) 

6 - Save configuration (Write memory)

7 - Reboot

is it correct steps?

@BenBeck Yes, it's answer on my question. Thanks for your time and assist! 

Hey @irakli_gvishian 

The non-ufi images do exist, but are not recommended for 8090+. They exist to have the option to upgrade from an old release that does not understand UFI image directly to 8090. This was the idea at the time, but we had some issues and we have specifically made 8080f as our intermediate image and it has been verified as the upgrade path by Engineering. Also, UFI image does not have full functionality. Please see this note from the 8090mc release notes:

Technically you can run non-UFI in 8090 code train, but it is not recommended and you will not have full functionality. I would recommend upgrading any non-ufi units to run the UFI image. Hope that helps.
