Firmware updating in general, but pointing out the Switch line specifically.
Why are automatic updates done that contain "Stable Release Candidate" code? Why not wait until that version of code has hit Stable? And, I don't really care to hear the "oh Meraki Release Candidate code is different talk"... if it truly was that different, then why is not changed to a Stable Release vs. Release Candidate. This would be OK if more information would be outlined in the release notes for that code, many times we have tried Release Candidates only to come across an issue that was known but not explained in the release notes, however is address in the Stable Release. If you plan on pushing auto-updates to our networks, give us an option to only allow code that is in the Stable branch.
Re: Firmware updating in general, but pointing out the Switch line specifically.
I’ll be very blunt on this issue. I have no problem with receiving the notice for auto firmware updates, but only if the release is marked as Stable. We should have an option to only allow the network to auto update if the Stable track is being pushed. No more, no less.
