pls find attached the best practice FOS upgrade and FOS upgrade doc. you have to check the compatibility of your FOS.read the release notes of the FOS you want to upgrade . Before that check the compatibility of your HOSTs' HBAs driver and firmware version and multipating software version from your storage vendor.It may cause problems later on especially in case of windows servers.
If you think that it has helped you pls correct the thread

Thanks for the replies. This was very helpful. According to that link, for a Brocade 200 switch the maximum version supported is 6.2.x. Is this correct? Will the release notes show what switches are supported for that version and if the switch is not listed then it's not supported?
