Downgrade de 8.1 RC2 to 8.0.2 7-mode

Hello,

I just receive a FAS2040 in 8.1 RC2. I would like to downgrade du 8.0.2 7-mode. How can I do ?

If I simply use the "software update http://..../802_e_image.tgz, I finaly boot in 8.0.2, but I have an error at boot:

"Could not set environment variable 'BMC_FIRMWARE_URL': Environment variable is read-only"

And if I try to start maintenance mode and choose option "4" for fresh install, the filer is still in 8.1 RC2!

What is the right way?

Regards

Vincent

are you sure it is really FAS2040 and not FAS2240?

Re: Downgrade de 8.1 RC2 to 8.0.2 7-mode

Hi, yes. I'm sure it is a FAS2040

I try "software update http://192.168...../802p5_e_image.tgz", then "revert_to"

It's seems to work

Thanks

Vincent
