Re: FOS upgrade

thank you,

so my understanding now is as following: (please correct me)

1- for the v6.1.0c i have to follow:

6.1.0c > 6.2.2f > 7.0.0x > 7.0.2d > 7.1.1c > 7.2.0a

 

2- for the v6.4.0c:

6.4.0c > v6.4.3e > 7.0.2d > 7.1.1c > 7.2.0a

 

is that right please?

thanks

--->>> so my understanding now is as following: (please correct me)

2- for the v6.4.0c:

6.4.0c > v6.4.3e > 7.0.2d > 7.1.1c > 7.2.0a

 

no, the procedure is incorrect, please follow this step.

 

1- since you are on v6.1.0c continue with:

> 6.2.2f > 6.3.2d > 6.4.3d or e > 7.0.2c or d > 7.1.1c > and finaly to 7.2.0c, if you have access.

 

2- since you are on v6.4.0c continue with:

6.4.3d or e > 7.0.2c or d > 7.1.1c > and finaly to 7.2.0c, if you have access.

 

by 2. theoretically, you can upgrade from current 6.4.0c to 7.0.2, but i would follow brocade suggestion and upgrade first to 6.4.3d as descripted in upgrade path procedure.

 

Note, FOS 7.2.0c close Critical DEFECT reported in a and b release.

Re: FOS upgrade

Hello Antonio,

 

I need to upgrade b300 from 6.4.0.0 to the latest version 7.3.0c, does the same upgrade path applies?
