Where can I download Boot ROM 1.0.0.5 for the PowerConnect 5224?

This question is not answered

I've scoured Dell's forums, FTPs and Googled this but have yet to find the file.

Thanks!

  • Here is a link to the download

    www.dell.com/.../DriverDetails

    Once you install the file to the non-active image, you will then update the boot code per the instructions. That update of the Boot Code will look in the same install for the boot code to match that firmware

    NOTE: You cannot upload and download Boot-ROM files to a TFTP server using the CLI. You must use a direct terminal connection to the switch's console port and press <Ctrl><f> after the diagnostic test results. See "Downloading Firmware Through the Console Port."

  • Daniel - thanks for the link, but I'm still not getting something right.  I'm able to update the firmware to 3.1.0.16 by uploading and changing the operation code file but the boot-rom code is still 1.0.0.0.  It looks to be from a file named diag1000 which is also set as a startup file.  I don't see any other files I change/upload and then set as a startup file that are roughly the same size.  Your link only appears to contain the 3.1.0.16 firmware or I'm doing this in an incomplete fashion.  Your directions are somewhat cryptic to me, sorry.

  • You are going to need to follow these instructions step by step.

    And on step 10 choose d for diagnostic code.

    • After the file has been downloaded, press <r> for runtime code or <d> for diagnostic code when Update Image File: appears.

    The one firmware download should contain both boot and diag code in it.

    Keep us updated,

    Thanks.

  • I've done both <r> and <d> at this point.  If I choose <d> and name the new file XXXXX and set it as the startup file, the boot rom is not updated and the boot diagnostics test messages look different and ctrl <f> no longer works.  I then have to go into the CLI and set the boot rom back to the previous file (diag1000) and everything works as before.

    Once I choose <r> or <d> I can't get back to that menu option without going through the firmware download process again.

  • Lets instead try this through the web gui, see if we get any different outcome.

    Firmware Upgrade

    From the Firmware page, you can configure the system to download a new version of the management software. The switch can contain two software code files, one of which is set as the Start-Up file. This allows you to try a new version of the software without overwriting the previous version.

     NOTE: The switch is shipped with one software code file installed (the filename is similar to PC5224_v1.00.00.00), which is set as the start- up file.

    The Firmware page contains the following fields:

    • Current Operation Code Version

    It also contains the following editable fields:

    • TFTP Server IP Address — Specifies the server from which the system must retrieve the new version of the software.

    • Source File Name — Specifies the path and name of the software file to download.

    • Destination File Name — Specifies the file to be replaced.

    • Remove Operation Code Image File — Deletes a software file from the switch.

    • Start-Up Operation Code File Name — Indicates which Operation Code file you want to run. Select the filename from the drop-down menu.

    Uploading Operation Code to a Server

    1. In the Transfer Operation Code Image File to Server field, enter the IP address of the Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server in the TFTP Server IP Address field.

    2. In the Source File Name field, select the file to upload from the drop- down menu.

    3. In the Destination File Name field, type a name for the file.

    4. Click Transfer to Server.

    Downloading Operation Code from a Server

    1. In the Transfer Operation Code Image File from Server field, enter the IP address of the TFTP server in the TFTP Server IP Address field.

    2. In the Source File Name field, type the filename of the software code file to download.

    3. For the Destination File Name, select a filename from the drop-down menu to replace an existing file, or specify a new filename (with no more than 32 characters). Filenames are case sensitive and cannot contain spaces. The switch can contain only two software code files. You cannot download a third file; you must first replace an existing file or remove a file.

    4. Click Transfer from Server.

    Deleting an Operation Code File from the Switch

    1. In the Remove Operation Code Image File field, select the file to delete from the drop-down menu.

    2. Click Remove File.

    Selecting the Operation Code Start-up File

    1. In the Start-Up Operation Code Image File field, select the start-up code file from the drop-down menu.

    2. Click Apply Changes.
