Fabric 6.2.2.a ->6.3.1.c

Hi,

it is possible to fabric an Brocade SANSwitch with Firmware 6.2.2a to a New SANSwitch with Firmware 6.3.1.c?

The New SANSwitch is resetet to factory defaults.

 

Another Question, after the fabric, is it possible to upgrade the new one to the Firmware 7.4.1 without any steps between this major releases?

 

thanks and greetings!

yes.

No!

 

Additional, I would suggest depend the Switch Type/model to upgrade the old switch to a newest release, 6.2.2 is comaptible with 7.4.x but from a point of view of support ( 6.2.2a is vulnerable and EOL ) to have Upgrade to.
