4036E software update


I have a 4036E switch and I am trying to update the software. Here is the system info:

The health monitor shows:

The update software chassis gives:

with each .fpf being identical to the one on the flash. The programing finishes successfully and reboots:

during the load everything looks the same as other switches except:

But when it finishes loading it is right back where it started:

Any ideas about what is going on here?

Thank you,


After some more searching I found the solution to this issue is to update the software to version 3.62 and then to 3.91-987. In my case I was able to skip the other versions in between. I had to contact Mellanox support to get the correct software and firmware versions for the 4036E.

I hope this helps someone out there.
