Version 2.2.6

Command introduced.

Version 2.3

The parameters prepare, reboot-parallel, and reboot-group added.

Usage   The fabric consists of one or more switches that share an administrative domain. The fabric presents the abstraction of a big logical switch with a single point of management, hiding the complexity of the underlying collection of switch hardware and inter-switch links. Use this command to begin a fabric-wide upgrade.

Examples  To force the upgrade to end immediately, use the following syntax:

CLI network-admin@switch > fabric-upgrade-start

fabric-create

fabric-info

fabric-show

fabric-node-evict

fabric-node-show

fabric-upgrade-finish

fabric-upgrade-start

fabric-upgrade-status-show
