Download OS10 image from Dell Digital Locker (DDL)
1.Sign in to DDL using your account credentials: Dell Digital Locker
2 Locate the entry for your entitlement ID and order number, then select the product name.
3 Select the Available Downloads tab on the Product page.
4 Select the OS10 Enterprise Edition image to download, then click Download.
5.You may also download a License.zip file for OS10 from DDL, if needed.

Note: Read the Release Notes on Dell Digital Locker (login required) and Dell EMC SmartFabric OS10 Installation, Upgrade, and Downgrade Guide | Dell US prior to performing an upgrade for detailed information about limitations and restrictions when performing upgrades.

Note: If you are having DDL account issues, Dell Support can provide a copy of OS10 to install, however your DDL account issue will have to be fixed before obtaining a license.

Upgrade OS10 image from existing OS10 install
1.Once you download the OS10 Enterprise Edition image, extract the .TAR file.

Some Windows extract applications insert extracarriage returns (CR) or line feeds (LF) when they extract the contents of a .tar file. This may corrupt the downloaded OS10 binary image. Turn OFF this option if you use a Windows-based tool to untar an OS10 binary file.
For example, in WinRAR under the Advanced Options tab clear the TAR file smart CR/LF conversion feature.

2.Save the current configuration on the switch, and Backup the startup configuration.


3. Format a USB as VFAT/FAT32 and add the .BIN file, or move the .BIN file to a TFTP/FTP Server.
Use the native Windows tool, or equivalent, to format as VFAT/FAT32.
Starting with OS10.4, OS10 will auto-mount a new USB drive after a reboot.
3B. For OS10.3 and below a USB drive can be mounted with the following commands:

4. Save the BIN file in EXEC mode, and view the status. Do NOT use the .tar file. Update file name to match your firmware version.

Note: The image download command only downloads the software image - it does not install the software on your device. The image install command installs the downloaded image to the standby partition.
Note: This is not a required step, but recommended if slow connections can go to step 5.

5. Install the software image in EXEC mode.

6. View the status of the current software install in EXEC mode. If the install status shows FAILED, check to ensure the .TAR file is extracted correctly. See Step 1.

7 Change the next boot partition to the standby partition in EXEC mode.

8. Check whether the next boot partition has changed to standby in EXEC mode.

9. Reload the new software image in EXEC mode.

10. After the reload, verify the Firmware is updated:
