Firmware Update proccess v5.0.4 - v7.0.0c

Hi All

Could someone perhaps assist me? I need to Update x2 Brocade SAN switches from v5.04 -v7.0.0c.

What is the update process? I know you can’t just jump to the new version, but you can jump or pass some of the previous version.

Assistance will be appreciated.

Regards

Hi,

step one should be: does your switch support the v7.0.0c? Or even 6.4?

Where do you find that? The release notes.

Which switch do you have?

You can get from 5.0 to 5.2 and from there on you need to take them one step at a time. So next is 5.3, then 6.0, etc.

Re: Firmware Update proccess v5.3.1 - v6.2.2f

I checked and my client has 4 x 4Gig 32port HP/Brocade SAN switches.

I double checked and they are currently on v5.3.1 and I see the latest revision for them are 6.2.2f.

I need to upgrade these switches to the latest revision this evening. I just need to know what firmware revisions I need to download from the Internet to update them. Please can someone urgently assist me.

--->>> I checked and my client has 4 x 4Gig 32port HP/Brocade SAN switches.

if the switches have 32 Port, this are most probabale native Brocade 4100 or 5000, if you are unsure see this DOC

4100 and 5000 are Supported till latest Release FOS 6.4.2b, 6.4.3 is coming soon.

FOS package are available by HP for Download, both Switch use same FOS Release, excepted FOS 5.2.1_NIx this is intended only for 5000
