Last DAY i have needed upgrade my MDS9124 from 5.0.4(d) to 5.2.8(e).
When i started the upgrade i recaived this message:
O my god!!!! is not possible.
I found the solution… i have resolved with reload the switch (this is siwtch is up from 5 years and the memory is 90% busy).
After reload the upgrade is Non-disruptive
I need upgrade switch mds9124 for compatibility with San Volume Controller 7.4
Now NX-OS on MDS switch is :
kickstart: version 5.0(4d)
system: version 5.0(4d)
Command for view NX-OS is “show ver”
After this i have checked free space on bootflash dir:

MDS-CP-02# del bootflash:m9100-s2ek9-kickstart-mz.4.2.5.bin
MDS-CP-02# del bootflash:m9100-s2ek9-mz.4.2.5.bin
Ok i am ready to load news fw in to bootflash dir i use tftp server:
copy tftp://10.1.1.207/m9100-s2ek9-kickstart-mz.5.2.8e.bin bootflash:m9100-s2ek9-kickstart-mz.5.2.8e.bin
copy tftp://10.x.x.x/m9100-s2ek9-mz.5.2.8e.bin bootflash:m9100-s2ek9-mz.5.2.8e.bin

Use command line, connect with ssh client to MDS switch. In this case MDS9124.
