Hello,

 

What NOS is the switch running currently?! is it a Standalone switch or part of a fabric?

I have the same issue. i have two brand new VDX 6740B switches and their running version is 4.x.

 

I need to upgrade them to 6.X? 

 

Is there a link you can give me because i have the brocade-branded USB device to use for the upgrade?

Hello,

 

The current Target Paths for VDX6740 are 5.0.2c and 6.0.2b. 6.0.2b Supports additional features like openflow, BGP VRF (Partial support) and BFD.

 

I recommend checking the release notes of each Code to choose which NOS to upgrade to.

 

Release notes, Software Download and Upgrade Guides can be downloaded from https://my.brocade.com

All of the NOS release notes have a Migration Path section

 

For example when upgrading from NOS 4.1x to NOS 6.02b you should use the 'FWDL “default-config” (Config loss)' option

 

You could step via Version 5 to keep the config
