Configuring Centralized Image Upgrades

The Centralized Image Upgrade feature uses ArubaOS images to upgrade the managed devices with the ArubaOS images hosted on an image server. When an upgrade action command is executed on the Mobility Master, the upgrademgr process running on Mobility Master sends an upgrade request to upgrademgr process running on corresponding managed devices. The managed devices then connect to the image server, validates the image file and downloads the appropriate image file. It then upgrades to the downloaded image file.

Starting from ArubaOS 8.2.0.0, IPv6 address support is added for Centralized Image Upgrade.

ArubaOS now provides native IPv6 support that allows the upgrademgr process to send upgrade requests between Mobility Master and managed devices in a native IPv6 deployment. If the Mobility Master IP address contains both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, then IPv6 address is preferred over IPv4 address.
