Can someone verify my FOS upgrade path

I'm in the process of upgrading a pair of EMC Brocade DS-6505B FC switches. Unfortunately, they are running a no longer supported version of firmware, 7.0.2c (yeah, I know). After some searching and reading, these switches are still supported in the latest FOS 8.* release. My plan is to set a target of 7.4.x.

 

With that being said, is this the correct FOS upgrade path:

 

7.0.2c(do I need to be on 7.0.2e before going to 7.1.1?)  →  7.1.1b/c  →  7.2.1g →  7.3.1d →  7.4.2*

Hi,

No, you don't have to be on v7.0.2e before going to v7.1.1c. I recommend upgrading to the following EMC supported FOS Target Paths v7.0.2c => v7.1.1c => v7.2.1g => v7.3.1e => v7.4.1e.

Ah, OK. I had 7.4.1e as my original target version, but I saw 7.4.2 was out so I edited my original plan to be 7.4.2.

 

Thank you!
