This process can also be used to update new software to the managed MultiLink switches.
Before the software is updated, it is advised to save the configurations. Reloading of the

recommended that you save configurations before a software update. Make sure to
reboot the switch after a new configuration is loaded.

the figure below and summarized below. These operations can take place from the FTP or

The file transfer operations allowed are:
1. Image Download (or Image Upload): Copy the ML1600 image from switch to
the server (or from the server to the switch). The “Image Upload” option is
commonly used to upgrade the ML1600 image on the switch.
2. Config Download (or Config Upload): Save the configuration of the switch on
the server (or load the saved configuration from the server to the switch). This
option is used to save a backup of the ML1600 configuration or restore the
configuration (in case of a disaster.)
