Firmware upgrade fails with the following error dialogue:
The path to this firmware image is too long - the maximum length is 30 characters.
ERS / BOSS switches have a 30-character path limitation via the CLI for firmware download. Starting with XMC 188.8.131.52 the local path where firmware images are stored was changed increasing the length of the path beyond this 30-character limitation.
The 30-character limitation has been increased to 255 characters on all ERS / BOSS software platforms. These platforms must be manually upgraded to supported releases prior to any future firmware upgrade support via XMC.
This is not considered an issue with Extreme Management Center (XMC).
