My first BIG-IP upgrade

Hi guys/gals,



I have a change upgrading some LTMs from 10.2.0 to 10.2.3



I'm having a bit of issue wrapping my head around the concept and I don't want to mess this up. This is VERY important to my customer.



From what I understand I have to :


1.Copy the new image to /sharred/images


2.Check md5


2.Check partioning with "switchboot -l" and make sure i have a free partiton


3.If necessary make new partition with image2disk


4."b software" command to install a new image.


5.Boot new image as default





What I still have issue with (if what I described above is correct) is how to do it on active/redundant pair ?


Do I have to check how they are peered i.e network/serial and turn of high-avalability during change because different BIG-IP versions don't support redundancy ?


If I do it on standby first how can I test to make sure it is ok before moving to the active ?



Any advice is welcome.
