Dell 6248 Firmware 1.x to 3.x

This question is not answered

Hello all

i am trying to figure out if there is any issues going straight from 1.x firmware to 3.x firmware, i know that 2.x to 3.x required to be done via the console and required reload of boot loader, but there seems to be nothing for 1.x to 2.x or 3.x

do i need to step up to 2.x or can i go straight to 3.x using the same procedure for 2.x to 3.x

  • I did not see any indication in the firmware documentation that you need to update to 2.x before 3.x firmware. However I would take the side of caution and follow the same steps that are outlined in the documentation labeled "PowerConnect 6224/6224F/6224P/6248/6248P2.x Upgrade Procdedure" . This documentation can be found in the firmware download for the switch.
