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)?
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.
