Note: Before you begin this upgrade you will need a computer running a TFTP server.

If the new firmware version requires a different bootcode, continue to Step 1. If you do not need to upgrade the bootcode continue to Step 4. Step 1: Enter the command copy tftp://(ip address)/(filename) boot.
Where you replace (ip address) with the IP address of the TFTP server and (file name) with the version of boot code you wish to upload.

For example: tftp://192.168.5.300/10025.rfb boot.

Step 2: After the upload is complete, type reload in the command prompt and hit Enter.

Step 3: Once the switch has reloaded, log into the switch and run the command show version. Ensure that the new boot code version was uploaded properly.

You can now upload the new firmware.

Step 4: Enter the command Copy tftp://(ip address)/(file name) image
Where you replace (ip address) with the IP address of the TFTP server and (file name) with the version of firmware you wish to upload.

For example: tftp://192.168.5.300/1109.ros image.

Step 5: After the upload is complete, check the image on the switch by using the following command:
Show bootver and see which image is not active.

Step 6: Run the following command:
Boot system image-<non active image>
Where <non active image> is the non active image (either 1 or 2).

Note: If you are downgrading the firmware to an older version, type delete startup-config, in the command prompt, and hit Enter. Then type y twice in response to the prompts, to proceed.
If it is a newer version, continue to Step 7.

Step 7: After the upload is complete, type reload, in the command prompt, and hit Enter.

Step 8: Once the D-Link switch has reloaded, log into the switch and run the command show version. Ensure that the boot code version and the firmware version is correct.

    so what do you do if you uploaded a new firmware from the http interface from an old 1.0.36 firmware and your switch no longer boots right? It freezes at “Running from RAM” never returns to a prompt to configure it.

    I can get to boot prom menu on serial port but the option 1) Download Software doesn’t seem to do anything with the new bootprom image I uploaded.
