Firmware Upgrade Brocade 300

Hello experts.

I've 4 FrontEnd Switches 300 with FW. 6.2.0c and 4 BackEnd Switches 300 with FW 6.1.1a.

The BackEnd Sw's are connected with the NetApp Filers. NetApp doesn't support the newest

FW. On the FrontEnd Sw's are connected with the Oracle RAC Servers. This connect's over

a DWDM Line (DarkFiber) 2 Datacenter's. This construct is a metrocluster.

Now i'm searching on this forum for detail installation guide

to upgrade FOS 6.2x to FOS 6.3.1b on Brocade 300. Thanks in advance.

There is a section "Installing and Maintaining Firmware" in the FOS guide for 6.3, should equip you with all the required knowledge.

Also the release notes for 6.3.1b

The execution bit is simple, you need to just run the command

AS mentioned in the other Thread, ask by Netapp Support if this Release was Tested and Certified.
