I have an HP ProCurve 3500-48 POE switch that I wish to upgrade the firmware version on. ProCurve switches come with 2 boot partitions so we can upload the new firmware to the partition not currently in use. In this scenario I have setup a TFTP server (SolarWinds TFTP Server) on the local LAN; I have tested connectivity from the switch by pinging the TFTP server.
I downloaded the firmware from the HP website > Drivers & Downloads section – ensure to specify the correct model of switch when performing a search.
Determine which partition (primary/secondary) is currently the boot partition
