Re: VDX6740

I just did this upgrade.


load your new firmware on your brocade USB stick.  Make sure you put it in the /brocade/firmware directory.  That is where the 6740 will be looking for it by default.  There may be other places but this one worked for me.


at the command prompt type:


usb on    ( this turns on/mounts your USB stick)


firmware download usb directory nos6.0.1 (assuming the directory name is nos6.0.1)   make sure it is not a nested directory there should not be another directory with the same name in it.



hope this helps.

Please note that you cannot upgrade directly from 4.0.3 to 6.0.1.
