Can anyone advise where the latest firmware for the Dell M8428-k Converged chassis switch can be obtained from ?
A search on Dell's site throws up some release notes for version Fabric OS v6.4.3_dcb4 but I've been unable to find the corresponding firmware download on either the Brocade or Dell sites.
A similar post suggests that firmware is available on the IBM site, and I have found some software there, but not the latest...
Solved! Go to Solution.

you can get the required FOS ONLY trough DELL Specific Lasso Firmware Update, with a valid DELL TAG number.
Lasso must be installed and configured on the Blade Center where the M8428 is installed.
Additional, assume you should find IBM Image, I would suggest to don't upgrade the Switch with OEM FOS, because for this Blade the FOS is OEM Specific a propietary and you get a risk that the Management Module on Blade Center cannot recognize the Switch.

Thanks for the pointer to the Lasso software - I'd not come across that before.
I've got that installed now and whilst I can see that it's interrogating the switches and chassis, I can't see anywhere obvious where it downloads firmware.
Would that only be available for devices with a valid Dell warranty/support contract ?

I think yes, because for the most DELL plattfoms download from FW is only available with active maintenance contract.
what FOS Release is installed in the blade ?
are you at 6.3 or 6.4.x ?

Is the blade under maintenance ? And if No, did you try with DELL Support ?
otherwise send me all the Info Serial and TAG Number by email - see my profile - I'll try for you by DELL.
