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?
