The switch has two partitions to load a new config firmware for testing
and then easily roll back to an older firmware once testing is completed.
This dual partition is found under Switch>Management>Dual Image.
Partition 0 is the active partition.
To upgrade the switch click the upgrade button in the upper right corner
of the screen.
It is prudent to upgrade the new firmware image to the backup partition,
not the active partition. In this example Partition 1 is the backup
partition and the active partition is partition 0.
After you click browse and find the valid image firmware file to upload to
the switch, and click apply you will get this confirmation screen.
Click the OK button to proceed.
After you click the okay button you will get another confirmation screen.

the active partition then please update Partition 0 to match the firmware
in Partition 1 and switch the active partition back to Partition
