Hello guys, 

I got a special requirement from my customer, which is about checking and upgrading the switch firmware to the last version automatically. The customer hold serval S5700 switches, and they want to upgrade them to the last version and upgrading these switches automatically in the furture. I checked the documentation, EasyDeploy could help to implement a batch upgrade, which might reduce the labor cost. But I didn’t find how to configure the EasyDeploy to upgrade the firmware to the last version automatically. Is there something I missed? Do you guys ever encounter such problem?

It would be appreciated for any suggestions.

Thanks.

@sim_157 hello,

As you said, EasyDeploy could implement a batch upgrade, which helps to reduce the labor cost, and it cannot upgrade the switch automatically.

To automatical upgrading, you might need the smart upgrade.

Smart upgrade implements one-click loading and upgrade of a new version by connecting the device to be upgraded to the Huawei Online Upgrade Platform (HOUP) through the Internet. After the smart upgrade function is enabled, the switch periodically sends its information to the HOUP platform, which then obtains the latest version information of the switch based on the maintenance policy. After a user confirms that the upgrade is conducted immediately, the switch automatically downloads the software package and completes the upgrade.

To enable the smart, you should upgrade the switch to version V200R019 or later.

I think so, in smart upgrades, a switch uses HTTPS to connect to the HOUP platform. Therefore, an SSL policy must be bound to establish an HTTPS connection.
