    Is it possible to update the firmware on a Voltaire ISR9024D externally managed switched using a linux box?

    arfio

      Hi all!

       

      I recently bought on ebay the switch mentioned in the title, and it works just SDR instead of DDR. Searching here suggested that it may be a firmware issue, therefore i checked the

      version of the firmware installed on the switched. After installing mft tools 2.7.1 (I read somewhere here that they were working fine) on my centos 6 box i queried the firmware

      using spark. The installed fw is v0.8.6

      After some googling I finally found the 1.0.5 fw image for this switch

      When I finally ran spark -d **** -i firmware.ISR9024D.img b

      it failed saying something like:

       

      verifying secondary image failed:

      address 0x2003 : expected 0xa0 found 0x00

       

      My conclusion is that spark didn't actually burn anything on the EEPROM so my question is:

      is it possible to do what I want to do or is the switch's EEPROM somehow locked?

       

      Thanks!
