I am looking for brocade 10g ethernet card drivers for linux kernel 3.6.6-1.el6xen.x86_64.
The present drivers available for download are for 2.x.x kernel, can someone please point me to right direction on this.

Yes, call that number and give them your contract information. They will guide you through what they require.

Thanks for your reply.
I found that that we are running Brocade 1010,1020,1007 and 1741 adapters so I downloaded “Linux Adapter Firmware package for 3.0.23.x Drivers in RHEL 6.4
<http://www.brocade.com/forms/getFile?p=documents/downloads/HBA/Linux/Drivers/NOARCH/bfa_fw_update_to_v220.127.116.11.tgz> (bfa_fw_update_to_v18.104.22.168.tgz, 827 KB)”
But this tar file has only 3 bin files, I can not execute these bin files
-bash: ./ctfw-22.214.171.124.bin: cannot execute binary file
-bash: ./ct2fw-126.96.36.199.bin: cannot execute binary file
# ./cbfw-188.8.131.52.bin --help
-bash: ./cbfw-184.108.40.206.bin: cannot execute binary file
How can I install drivers from these? Please let me know.
