Upgrade software pada perangkat switch Nexus biasanya berbeda dari upgrade software perangkat cisco yang lainnya seperti Router atau Switch yang menggunakan IOS. Melakukan upgrade software perangkat ini dilakukan dengan cara Install mode.

Pertama yang harus dilakukan adalah download terlebih dahulu software di website cisco (https://software.cisco.com/download/navigator.html) berupa file .bin, pastinya kita punya authorized account agar dapat melakukan download software tersebut.

Setelah selesai download masukan file tersebut ke switch nexus, kita bisa melakukannya via usb atau transfer file menggunakan tftp.

Kemudian eksekusi menggunakan perintah berikut.

 

switch(config)# install all nxos bootflash:///nxos.7.0.3.I2.2d.bin
Installer will perform compatibility check first. Please wait.
