Important Information Upgrading to an Earlier Version of Firmware Upgrading to firmware version 05.01.00-24 is nondisruptive to attached devices. The edge switch or director is not required to be offline before performing an upgrade operation. Limitations to upgrades are clearly identified if there are any limitations to performing the operation.
Important Information Considerations for Downgrading the Version of Firmware Directors and edge switches are not required to be offline before performing a firmware downgrade operation. Limitations to downgrades are clearly identified if there are any limitations to performing the operation.

Known Issues “Port Properties” Option may be Unavailable in Node List View If you switch from Hardware View to Node List View, and choose the Product menu, the Port Properties option may not be available. Workaround You must first select a line for a port in the Node List for the Port Properties option to be available, no port is selected by default.
Known Issues CTP Controls Port Lights Port lights on the edge switch and director products are controlled by the CTP functionality. Certain activities, such as FW updates, IPLing the CTP, or switching over to the backup CTP (Director) can cause these port lights to extinguish momentarily until control is reasserted by the CTP.
Known Issues Replacing CD-ROM with ZIP Drive The CD-ROM should be installed in the Windows 2000 HAFM server only for loading and configuring the HAFM software, or for adding new director or edge switch firmware to the HAFM Firmware libraries. The CD-ROM should be replaced with the ZIP drive module for normal operation of the HAFM to allow for ZIP drive backups of the SAN configuration information.
