Upgrade path from FOS 5.2.2

I would like to get to 7.1.xxx

 

Equipment is a Brocade SW200e

 

Can someone suggest upgrade path and point me in the direction of the downloads?

 

Thank You.

Awesome thanks Dion

 

Any idea where I might find those firmware files.

 

Everywhere I looked points to a now missing brocade filestorage link?

Brocade has those files if you have a support contract with them.

Most likely you bought those switches from Dell/EMC/HP/any other vendor.


If you did look at that vendors support site.

If you didn't and don't have Brocade support or other support, you can try the page I linked before
and http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdHome/?sp4ts.oid=1143933&spf_p.tpst=swdMain&spf_p.prp_swdMain=wsrp-navigationalState%3DswEnvOID%253D54%257CswLang%253D%257Caction%253DlistDriver&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vigne...

 

However I wouldn't try this without accepting a risk of breaking your switch, and to be honest B200e are very old, 5/6 years already I would look for a replacement to do an rip and replace.

From that point onwards you can maintain the FW level of a more regular basis
