I have a pair of 8000 switches that I want to update to the latest recommended firmware version. I was able to bring them up to 7.1.2b1 but I get an error when updating to 7.2.1.
I've tried the straight v7.2.1 and also the a and b version.
all of them return the message when running firmwaredownload from the CLI: Cannot download the requested firmware because the firmware doesn't support this platform. Please enter another firmware path
according to this link: http://www.guldmyr.com/blog/brocade-san-switch-firmware-upgrades/
and a couple of others I've seen, v7.2.1 should be compatible. I'm downloading from HP.
Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
