Sadly, after purchasing 4 used 6450 switches, we discovered that Brocade will not offer any support - paid or otherwise - on these devices. We wish to run these as a ring-stack, but the devices run two differing firmware versions and thus, will not stack. Any thoughts on how I may obtain updates for these units, of are they now doorstops?

Contact Brocade to get access to download the firmware.
You also need the 1GE Twinax cables (PART 58-1000036-01) commonly known as the 1G-SFP-TWX-0101 cable

You are going to need to escalate this with Brocade. I know you say they won't help, but perhaps they need some paperwork from you like a bill of sale from the origional owner or something...
