Patches are released per device model. Before patching the system, you need to save the appropriate
patch files to the flash of the switch using FTP or TFTP. When saving the patch files, note that:
The patch files match the switch model and software version. If they are not matched, the hotfixing
operation will fail.
Name the patch file properly. Otherwise, the system cannot locate the patch file and the hotfixing
operation will fail. The name is in the format of "patch_PATCH-FLAG suffix.bin". The first three

the PATCH-FLAG. If there is a match, the system loads patches to or install them on the memory

One-Step Patch Installation
You can use the patch install command to install patches in one step. After you execute the command,
the system displays the message "Do you want to continue running patches after reboot? [Y/N]:".
Entering y or Y: All the specified patches are installed, and turn to the RUNNING state from IDLE.
This equals execution of the commands patch location, patch load, patch active, and patch run.
The patches remain RUNNING after system reboot.
Entering n or N: All the specified patches are installed and turn to the ACTIVE state from IDLE. This
equals execution of the commands patch location, patch load and patch active. The patches
turn to the DEACTIVE state after system reboot.
