TL 2000 Library and Drive firmware upgrade

I have Dell TL 2000 tape library 

Library Firmware version is D.10

LTO6 Tape drive firmware version is F9A1

 

Is it safe to upgrade directly to Version F11_3_20e, A29 Or do i need to follow specific upgrade path ? 

Also is there a way to backup the firmware before upgrade ? 

thank you for the help !

Hello Oscar1119,

You can upgrade the firmware directly to the latest version.  There is not a way to backup your firmware prior to upgrade.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks for the reply !

Just to confirm if I upgraded to newest firmware version are all prior fixes and enhancements in earlier firmware be applied or no ?

can revert back to prior versions of firmware if things did not work out as expected ?

 

I have LTO-6 SAS HH tape drive .

Hello Oscar1119,

All updates from previous versions will be applied when you install the latest firmware.  The firmware can be rolled back, however in most cases that is not needed.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.
