Need your support in updating the firmware for the Brocade directors 48000. Need step by step procedure document for the same.
Currently my directors are at 5.3.1a and planning to update to 5.3.2c.

running ftp server
firmware accesible from ftp (try with your workstation for exm.)
-Log on to the active CP
-issue firmwaredownload, interactive (give necessary info to succesfully access firmware on ftp server)
Be aware that the firmware is actually downloaded twice (once per CP).
First CP to reboot is the standby CP with new firmware.
After standby CP is updated, the Active CP will reboot making the (then) standby CP active.
The now standby CP (formerly active) will download the firmware again and reboot with new firmware
