Proper process to receive latest Brocade Fabric O/S Versions

Is the proper way to receive the most recent, updated Fabric O/S version is to email support@brocade.com?  I am trying to get a copy of 6.4.2x and there's no link provided even though I manage many (16) Brocade switches and have paid for licenses through Brocade.  You'd think a link would be set up to download the latest version but I can't find it.


I've emailed Brocade and just waiting for an answer.  Wondering if this was normal coz Lord knows I am a "tad" different

Licenses enable features.

New FOS version are available if you have supportcontracts (at least as far i know).

Hi brian.t.coulombe,

Brocade sells equipment via OEMs and Channel partners (such as EMC, HP or IBM). Latest approved firmware versions can be downloaded from OEM web sites in most cases. I suggest you contact your vendor or support partner. If you have direct Brocade contract it'd make sense to contact local Brocade office.

Hope this helps,
