Upgrade Brocade 5100 from version 6 to 7

Hi guys,


We have a Brocade 5100 in version 6. Unfortunately, I think that the support is over ...

We want to upgrade it to version 7.


1. Do you think that doing this we will loose the licenses ? 

2. Is there issues doing this upgrade ?

3. Is there a method to recover licenses from the switch before upgrading it ?



Thanks for your answers.

answer to


1) No.

2) No, upgrade is not disruptive, simple follow the FOS Upgrade targer path


3) from command line "licenseshow" command you get the output all installed license, need simple copy and past the License key.
