Customer has 11 x IBM BladeCenters in use in their 'Legacy' environment.
Each gets FC connectivity via a Brocade 4020 SAN Switch module clipped into the Chassis.
When is End of Support for this HW?
They use a mix of FOS 6.0.x / 6.1.x / 6.2.x
Is there any support left for these versions?
If so: when does it expire?
Thanks in advance,

4020 is out of support.
There is no official Brocade support for these devices anymore.

Thank you for that, but the link refers to the End of Life, NOT the End of Support I was requesting.

Re: FC Switch 4024 and 5480 Options 01-30-2015 11:59 AM Lutz, the 4020 Blade is End of Support, since long time. -->>And what does this mean for my customer ? Switch replacement to newer hardware? Yes, I would suggest to Upgrade to, but no all Blade Center Server Models support NEW Switch Blade Generation. TechHelp24
