Pillar Axiom: Standard Ax600/500/300 Software Upgrade from R4.x to R4.x

This document outlines the steps to update an Axiom 600/500/300 from Release 4.x to Release 4.x.

These minor upgrades are Non-Disruptive Upgrades (NDU) they do not need to stop the hosts connected to the Axiom however it is recommended to choose a time when the IO load is reduced as Slammer Software and/or Brick Firmware may be upgraded resulting in possible reduced performances when these components are updated.

A minor release update typically lasts less than 30 min providing that the code has been staged prior to the upgrade (see below)
