Hello Community,

According to my SE, NOS4.0 was set for GA on 7/26.

I can't see it under Download section of MyBrocade Portal... Can someone confirm it's there ?

Thanks.

Re: NOS 4.0 availability

Hi Guys,

currently we're also waiting for 4.x to enlarge our fabric up to 32 switches. But currently there are so much changes in 4.x that we would wait some month to get it bug free

Re: NOS 4.0 availability

  1. Log-in to MyBrocade (shortcut at the top of this page)
  2. Select the 3rd item on the menu bar entitled:  "downloads"
  3. Under "Product Downloads" do a search for "Network OS" (this is the fastest way or you  may do the drop downs) Expand "Network Operating System (NOS).
  4. Select the version you need.

If the above information does not work out for you, please let me know.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for replying.

For my case, there is no NOS 4.0 under product download page.

That's why I'm curious about whether it's been available to download right now.

Do you guys have any idea what's going on?

Thanks a lot for your help.
