Using SmartZone updated two stacks one stack was successful the other not.
Updated from 08.0.90bT211 to 08.0.91T211 unit 2 was still up and unit 1 kept rebooting because of software not sync'ed over and over. Unit 1 was showing 08.0.91T211 Non-UFI and unit 2 was showing 08.0.91T211 UFI.
Unconfigured stack on unit 1 and then manually load firmware then is showed UFI but kept rebooting because Unit 2 said it was out of sync.
Disconnected Unit 1 from unit 2 manually uploaded firmware to unit 2 and reloaded. 

Stack was happy, is this normal?
Ran 08.0.30 for 2 years no problems

Hi Network Administrator,
You need to step upgrade first to 8080e code, this code allows you to do a non UFI to UFI Upgrade.


Hope this helps.

Thanks

Updated from 08.0.90bT211 to 08.0.91T211 why go backwards to 0880e?

I was stating for future upgrades, not for this one.

I was trying to explain the reason why you ran into issues. 

You did not step upgrade via 8080e code so you ran into this issue.

I was already on 08.0.90bT211 UFI pushed 08.0.91T211 UFI (which is ONLY UFI) and the switch was reporting 08.0.91T211 Non-UFI (not possible because there is NO Non-UFI 08.0.91T211)

I understand but with the going from non UFI to a  UFI image, the difference is that when you go without step upgrade via 8080e will not get you the UFI image.  And will have to manually intervene and upgrade...
Pre 8090s are non UFI Image and 8090 is UFI image.
In UFI image you get both the boot Monitor and Software code as one unified image.
Hope this clarifies.

I must be totally missing something here....
I was upgrading from 08.0.90bT211 UFI which is already a UFI to 08.0.91T211 UFI
If I am already on UFI firmware why do I need to go back? 
08.0.90bT211 UFI is newer than 08.0.91T211 UFI correct?
