Re: FirmWare Upgrade for 5300

You can download from Brocade if you have an support contract, otherwise you'l have to consult the webpage from your supplier/vendor, aka HP, EMC,IBM etc.

How to upgrade is described in the FOS admin guide.

Basically you have three options

-CLI

-Webtools

-BNA (or DCFM)

Easiest for you perhaps if to use webtools to upgrade.

Once logged on go to the firmware tab, fill in the text fields and off you go.

There is no 6.4.1.0 Fabric OS, it's called 6.4.1.

Why not 6.4.2b? 6.4.1a is about a year old by now.
