Dell SmartFabric OS10 Installation, Upgrade, and Downgrade Guide


Download OS10 image for upgrade

NOTE:For MX-Series Ethernet I/O modules, OS10 updates are packaged as Dell Upgrade Packages (DUPs) and are downloaded from the Dell Technologies Support site. For information about how to download the DUP files to upgrade OS10 on an MX9116n and MX5108n switch, see the Dell PowerEdge MX Networking Deployment Guide.
NOTE:In Release, OS10 software is available as a .tar file and DUP image (*.exe). For the list of platforms for which the DUP image is available, see Support for OS10 Dell Upgrade Package.

To upgrade an existing OS10 image, first download a new OS10 Enterprise Edition image from DDL.

  1. Sign into DDL using your account credentials.
  2. Locate the entry for your entitlement ID and order number, and then select the product name.
  3. Select the Available Downloads tab on the Product page.
  4. Select the OS10 Enterprise Edition image to download, and then click Download.
  5. Read the Dell End User License Agreement, and then scroll to the end of the agreement and click Yes, I agree.
  6. Select how to download the software files, then click Download Now.
  7. After you download the OS10 Enterprise Edition image, unpack the .tar file and store the OS10 binary image on a local server. To unpack the .tar file, follow these guidelines:
    • Extract the OS10 binary file from the .tar file. For example, to unpack a .tar file on a Linux server or from the ONIE prompt, enter:
      tar -xf tar_filename
      NOTE:Some Windows unzip applications insert extra carriage returns (CR) or line feeds (LF) when they extract the contents of a .tar file. The extra CRs and LFs 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, de-select the .tar file smart CR/LF conversion feature.
    • Generate a checksum for the downloaded OS10 binary image by using the sha256sum command on the image file. Ensure that the generated checksum matches the checksum in the image SHA-256 file that is extracted from the .tar file.
      sha256sum image_filename
  8. Follow the procedure in Perform OS10 upgrade.
