Firmware Update PowerConnect M6220 Switch in Dell PowerEdge M1000e Blade Chassis

To update the PowerConnect M6220 I was force to connect via a Null Modem Cable to first configure an IP address then followed up the upgrade procedure. I was able to locate a cable off of eBay to connect to the console of the M6220 switch in the M1000e chassis. The cable is a “USB” to DB9 Null Modem Cable. Do not be confused with a USB to DB9 Adapter that has an integrated circuit that provides you a COM port on your host. This cable is for the Dell PowerConnect series switches and not used anywhere else in the data center that I’m aware of. The Dell Part Number of the cable is PN # WY835.

Here is the USB to DB9 Null Modem Cable Pinout…

*Thanks to Mike Anderson for correcting the pin out.

If you don’t need to make one, awesome! If you do need to make one, now you can!

Once an IP address is configured, it’s a two step process. Update to the PCM6220_vA firmware then upgrade to the PCM6220_v4 firmware. It requires more time than anything so be patient.

That two step process is broken down a little bit more. You first upload the PCM6220_vA firmware via TFTP, select the new boot image, issue a reload, upon reload catch the bootloader, within the bootloader choose to update the boot code then boot into the new image. You then repeat the same steps for PCM6220_v4 firmware. After all that, you’re finally up-to-date.

Note: You can upgrade from 1.x.x.x, 2.x.x.x or 3.x.x.x, the procedure is all the same regardless of what previous version the switch is on. The only case that is it is different is if you are going from one minor version to another, for example 4.0.x.x to 4.1.x.x.

Note 2: Before starting ensure there is an out-of-band management IP assigned to the interface and ensure the configuration is saved to the startup-config. Also, ensure management passwords are set as well before starting even if they are generic.

Note 3: This is all done through the serial connection with another host on the same network as the out-of-band management IP with a TFTP service running hosting the new images for the M6220. Pumpkin is a wonderful Windows TFTP server found here, kin.klever.net/pumpkin The files were placed in the root of the TFTP server directory.

Now here is the break down of commands how to get this done!

enable
configure
enable password <password>
exit
copy running-config startup-config
copy tftp://10.10.10.2/PCM6220vA.1.1.9.stk image
show version
boot system image2
reload
- Press 2 to Start Boot Menu
- Press 7 to Update boot code

enable
copy tftp://10.10.10.2/PCM6220v4.2.0.4.stk image
show version
boot system image1
reload
- Press 2 to Start Boot Menu
- Press 7 to Update boot code

Now here is the output of the following commands:

Upgrade Brocade Fabric OS FOS firmware Brocade 4424 in Dell M1000e Blade Chassis Guide

It appears there is a lack of information on upgrading the Brocade Fabric Operating System (FOS) on an I/O Module within Dell PowerEdge M1000e Blade Chassis. This guide will show you the step-by-step on how to upgrade your internal Brocade switch in a Dell Blade Chassis and what can be expected.

First, you will need to setup a temporary FTP site so that the firmware updater can retrieve the unzipped files. Let me recommend FileZilla FTP Server which can be downloaded at http://filezilla-project.org. Setup a user name and password to the directory where the extracted contents are. Now you can begin the upgrade process.

I was instructed by the Dell Technician to update the FOS in series meaning perform the v6.0.1 update, then the v6.1.1 update and finally perform the v6.2.0c update. I was unable to perform the v6.0.1 update but went directly to v6.1.1 then to v6.2.0c without any issues making this a two step process instead of three step process.

First lets get started by logging into the Blade Chassis CMC and lunch the administration interface for the Brocade I/O Module. After that, find Switch Administration on the left, click it and then click on the Firmware Download tab.

Enter the information

Brocade Fabric OS Upgrade Step 2

At this moment, the firmware upgrade process will kick you out of your session. Close the window and re-lunch a new session.

Brocade Fabric OS Upgrade Step 3a

After you’ve restarted the session go back to the Switch Administration under the Firmware Download tab. The firmware will finally commit the last changes.
