Manually flashing firmware on the switches is more complicated than with our access points or routers, as there is not an out-of-the-box tool that does all actions for you. You'll need to be aware of the switch's IP address and be able to setup a TFTP server on your local network.
Generally this should only be done as a last resort. If your switch can check into CloudTrax, it is simpler to have the switch upgrade via CloudTrax instead.
Switch Manual Flashing Steps
- Locate the switch's IP address via CloudTrax, your router's DHCP lease list or by doing a ping scan on the local network.
- Install and configure a TFTP server.
- Download the firmware .bix file for your switch to directory configured on your TFTP server.

- Remote into the switch via SSH.
- The default username is "admin", and the default password is "0p3nm3$h!". If these do not work, hold the reset button down for 15 seconds, wait for the switch to reboot, and try again.
- Once on the switch, run the following command:
copy tftp://<tftp server>/<firmware.bix> flash://image1
- Say Yes, when asked to continue.
- Say No, when asked to reboot.
- Run the following commands:
configure boot system image1 end save reboot
- The switch should reboot and check-in with the new firmware.
