Where to get FOS6.2.0.c

I'm trying to upgrade two DS300B's we have in our data centre from 6.1.0.j to 6.3.1a and according to the docs 6.2.0.c is an interim step - but that firmware doesn't appear in the download list for me - so 2 questions - is it true I need 6.2.0c and secondly if so where can I get it?

Thanks

Re: Where to get FOS6.2.0.c

Hi Mark,

--> is it true I need 6.2.0c --> answer NO

--> secondly if so where can I get it --> answer: From the web portal of your support partner. Brocade does not provide a public download area if you have no Brocade contract. 

Here is the recommendation from the releasenotes of 6.3.1b:

Recommended Migration Paths to FOS v6.3.1b

Migrating from FOS v6.1.x

For units currently operating at FOS v6.1.x, Brocade recommends using FOS v6.2.2b as a migration path to v6.3.1b in order to reduce risk of exposure to known issues at the v6.2.x code levels.

I hope this helps.

If you need further assist let me know.

Thanks Andreas,

FOS v6.2.2b and then 6.3.1b it is then!

Support call logged via our distibutor to get them - I had been hoping to get them on Saturday as we had an available SAN change window and testing time whilst I was upgrading our other (older) McData Fabrics but it will have to wait until after Christmas now.
