NOS 2.1 for VDX

Hi all,

     Can somebody please the release note for NOS 2.1 up on the Documents section on my.brocade.com?  Still only showing 2.0.1b as the latest.

Thanks

Folks,

Product Management advised me that this material should be available by the end of September in the usual location in my.brocade.com.

Best.

Re: NOS 2.1 for VDX

Incidentally I am also looking for this.  Any update?

I am particularly interested to know whether 2.1 version will support netconf and XML-based APIs? http://www.brocade.com/forms/getFile?p=documents/faqs/brocade-vdx-data-center-switches-faq.pdf outlines this as a roadmap item.

Regards.

Re: NOS 2.1 for VDX

I checked with Product Management on this and got the following response.

---

Answer is yes, we will support NETCONF/XML APIs in NOS v2.10. Predominantly BNA and to some extent other third party applications will use it

---

Hope that helps.

Re: NOS 2.1 for VDX

Many thanks for the quick turnaround.

We plan on leveraging this to programmatically talk to BNA, so looking at your response below, we should be able to do this.

What is the GA date for NOS2.1? Is it already available?

Adjacent question - Do we have a similar NETCONF interface for FOS as well?

Regards,

Hi.

As far as I know.... VDX is ONLY a L2 switch so far!!!

L3 routing might be available in any future.

regards

Re: NOS 2.1 for VDX

Karl is correct, the VDX is a Layer 2 only switch at this point.  Layer 3 is comming, but there is no time frame for when that will be released.

Thanks

Michael.
