How to perform Configupload on a Brocade SAN Switch using REST API?

Hi,

I need some help on how to use the given REST API- https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/fibre-channel-networking/fabric-os/fabric-os-rest-api/9-1-x/v24113756/brocade-operation-configupload-9-1-0.html
On execution of this REST API call , I am getting a 404 bad request error code.
https://docs.broadcom.com/doc/FOS-82X-REST-API-RM- This doc doesn't mention any REST API for this task.

Is there any other REST API available to perform a configupload task on a Brocade SAN Switch?

 

Thanks.

Hello aishwaryabhosale,

Which model switch do you have and what is your current FOS on the switch?

Hello DELL- Sam L,

We have multiple models of Gen5 and Gen6 hardware such as 8510-8, 8510-4, DS-6510, DS-6520, DS-6620 etc. The fabric OS version is 8.2.3

Hi Sam, 

That would be really useful, I'm also having the same issue, we are running GEN 6 switches on FOS v9.1.1, we I run the rest/brocade-module-version cmd, I do see a module for configuploads (below) 



brocade-operation-configupload
1.0.0
/rest/operations/configupload




But there's very little information on the XML syntax needed to0 perform the task 

https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/fibre-channel-networking/fabric-os/fabric-os-rest-api/9-1-x/v24113756/brocade-operation-configupload-9-1-0.html

unlike for example supportsave, you do get the request body information needed 

Regards Alan

Hello aishwaryabhosale,

Hello DELL- Sam L,

If you could confirm, if this configupload task is possible or not using the REST APIs. If its possible, please share some example on how to execute this API- https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/fibre-channel-networking/fabric-os/fabric-os-rest-api/9-1-x/v241...


Thanks
Aishwarya

Hello aishwaryabhosale,

Looking at the steps it looks like it should work, however I haven’t come across any cases where customers have used those steps.  We recommend to run configupload via telnet or switch web interface.  Here is a link to a kb for those steps. https://dell.to/42b7owM
