  2. DSP Upgrade Via CLI
  3. DSP Upgrade Via AutoExe (automated)

It is preferred to to follow below procedure in order to Upgrade DSP:

1) Take backup of the current configuration

2) factory reset the VEGA box

3) Reboot VEGA box

4) Upgrade DSP

5) Upload the backed up configuration once DSP upgrade is successful


DSP Upgrade Via GUI

VEGA GUI provides DSP status within in a VEGA status page which provides all the information with respect to DSP status and its channel status.

DSP Upgrade Via CLI

DSP firmware can be upgraded via CLI also.

User needs to make sure DSP Firmware bin file i.e. vega_upgrade_X.X.X.bin is present in there respective configured server(ftp/tftp) location/path so VEGA can easily download.

Please find the below set of commands that needs to be triggered on CLI in order to perform DSP Firmware Upgrade:

NOTE: It is mandatory to enable download process by triggering command "download enable" else CLI dsp upgrade process can not get triggered as shown below:



             

If DSP Upgrade is required, VEGA will generate a WARNING on VEGA CLI to inform user that the DSP Upgrade is Required as illustrated in above image.

If the Upgrade is not successful. VEGA will prompt error message on VEGA CLI for DSP Upgrade Failure reason as shown below:

NOTE: In order to achieve DSP ACTIVE user must have to Upgrade to respective VEGA Firmware version on which respective DSP firmware version is supported to which user want to Upgrade.

DSP Downgrade Procedure

DSP Downgrade procedure is exactly same as that of DSP Upgrade procedure. Please refer to DSP Upgrade procedure in order to check for DSP downgrade process too.

  1. DSP Downgrade from GUI as well as from CLI is possible wile Downgrading DSP version from 2.1.10/2.1.17 to 1.9
  2. DSP Downgrade from DSP Version 2.1.17 to 2.1.10 is only possible via VEGA CLI and not from VEGA GUI due to very minute changes between DSP version 2.1.10 and 2.1.17
