Exalogic NM2-GW Switch Upgrade Guide from v2.0.x to v2.1.6-2 (Doc ID 2188815.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 14, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software - Version to
Oracle Solaris on x86-64 (64-bit)
Linux x86-64


Direct upgrade of Exalogic Switches from v2.0.x to v2.2.2-7 is not supported.

An intermediate upgrade to v2.1.6-2 is required.

Once switches upgraded to firmware version v2.1.6-2 then only we can proceed to upgrade switches to v2.2.2-7 version.

This patch updates the firmware on NM2-GW and NM2-36P switches from version 2.0.x to 2.1.6-2. This upgrade enables a subsequent upgrade to 2.2.2-7 (or higher) which may be performed only if the switches are at 2.1.x.

Important Note:

The steps provided in this document should be applied as part of a whole Exalogic system PSU upgrade as they are supplemental to the full documentation and do not contain full instructions to set up the environment.

To learn more about PSUs and start the process, please go to the Exalogic Patch Set Updates (PSU) Primary <Note 1314535.1>

Exalogic Infrastructure content in a PSU has been tested to work together in an optimal manner, and needs to be patched as a single unit. Applying only parts of the Infrastructure patches and choosing not to apply others is not supported. Oracle highly recommends customers to align with the infrastructure SW/FW versions included in a PSU.



This patch is applicable to X2-2, X3-2, X4-2, and X5-2 running the following EECS versions on Exalogic:

- v2., v2., v2., v2.
- v2., v2., v2., v2., v2.
- v2.
