Hi,

 

-->>I have upgraded the switch from NOS 4.0.1 to NOS 5.0.1.....

 

Recommended Migration Paths for Brocade Network OS v5.0.0

Though Brocade supports skip-version upgrade, it is not recommended because it will cause configuration loss.

Switches operating with earlier versions of Brocade Network OS should be upgraded to 4.1.x before upgrading v5.0.0.

 

I would suggest to open a TAC with Support.
