Asim,

FOS package download are available by Brocade only with Maintenance Contract.

See in Internet by any OEM such as HP or IBM for Download.

If you have any question about Upgrade procedure, let me know.

HI,

Pls check , these SWs must have AMC with some organizations, which are partner or OEMs.If you organization is a partner, then you can log into the Brocade site and get the FOS. But I have seen , with our ID, I got only 5.3.2a, where as through  OEM ID I got FOS5.3.2c. For FOS upgrade, pls follow the attached guide.It is pretty simple, unless you have access to an FTP server properly.Pls go trough the release notes of FOS version also. It is pretty simple.
