Upgrade Code on a HPE Provision Switch

I’m currently having to dig into the HPE Provision line of switches.  Here are a few notes to document the process of upgrading the code on a HPE 2920.

 

Step 1 – Validate current code version using show version command:

initial_sh_version

Step 2 – Copy new code to flash using copy tftp flash command:

Once the file transfer is complete the system will validate the new code:

validate

Step 3 – Verify the system is configured to boot of the partition with the new code installed using the show flash command:

final_sh_version

Step 4 – Reboot the switch using the reboot command (make sure to save changes if needed)

Where is the SSID that I just configured?

I was playing in my lab today and ran into an issue where my Aruba access point would not advertise my newly created SSID on my local controller. I started digging around and first noticed my AP was up but  was flagged inactive:

acmx_-_troubleshooting_ap_not_active

Next I checked to see if that access point was advertising a bss:

acmx_-_troubleshooting_ap_not_active_-_sh_ap_bss

The next step was to check and see if I had any profile errors:

acmx_-_troubleshooting_ap_not_active_-_sh_profile-errors

And there is the problem.  I configured my VLAN on my master controllers but forgot about the locals.  As soon as I added VLAN 100 to my local I could see  and connect to my SSID:

The point of this story is to not get in a hurry when configuring your controllers and make sure your networking config is solid on your local controllers.
