This video will detail the process of updating the firmware to a Stride SE Series Managed Ethernet Switch.
Firmware file used in this update process is version (5.3.174). This file can be downloaded from this page
To update the firmware in a Stride SE Series Managed switch. First, you will need to download the firmware file from our website. When you are at our site, find the blue bar at the top of the page and hover over Downloads, now select Firmware. At the top of this page select Download Firmware Binaries. You will find the Stride Managed switches under “Other hardware”. Select Download Now and store this file to your local PC. This download will be in a zip file form. The switch update utility will require this file to be extracted before installing. Note that this file is a FWB file. Now that we have the file we must gain access to the switch. Here I am connecting to the switch over Ethernet by typing the IP address of the switch into my web browser. You will now be asked to enter the User name and password for the switch. From the navigation pane on the left, expand the Managed switch Menu and then the Advanced operations. Here you will see the Update firmware option, select it. Now if you read this note you will see that this page is for a tgz file. We downloaded a fwb file, so you will need to need to select this option to install this file. Select this choose file button. Now navigate to the file we downloaded and extracted earlier, select it and click on open. Now you will see your file name here. Select Install from file. Now you will now see the install from file button grey out and the upload progress will be seen here. Now you will see a message requiring a reboot of the switch. This can be done by resetting power to the switch and waiting for the Status LED to stop flashing. Once the switch has rebooted, reconnect through the web browser. Now we must select to run the new firmware. Select Setup, then Main settings, now Manage firmware. Now select the file we just loaded. And now select Commit Changes. It will now load the firmware, which will then require the switch to be rebooted. Once the status LED stops flashing, reconnect through the web browser and verify the firmware # is correct.
