I have a Kingston USB key that I'm trying to use to retrieve / save configuration information from a DCX switch, but the ext3 filesystem I created on it isn't being recognized by the usbstorage -e command.
What filesystem must I use when formatting that usb device?

According to a post from TechHelp24 in another thread (from Nov 2009), both Kingston and SANDisk are supported and should work. I just need to know how to format them ;-)
But thanks for responding, I appreciate it.

another Member post the same problem in the past.
Apparently are Kingstone USB Stick not supported.
I'm not sure, - I have not tested or work with USB Stick in Brocade Switches - but I don't know any kind of Announcement from Brocade about restriction with General on the Markt available USB Stick's.
It's possible to test with another USB Stick and post the result here ?

I was experiencing this very issue this evening. The problem was that I had downloaded with Chrome, and it had automatically attempted to unzip the nos gzip file, but failed. Since this was my forst nos upgrade, I didn't know what to expect. Once I re-unzipped the original gzip file, and copied it over to the firmware directory on the usb stick, it worked as expected.

As far as i know we can only use Brocade supplied USB with DCX switches to backup/restore configuration, firmware upgrade/downgrade, Brocade branded USB comes with preformated file system.
Unsupported USB devices will fail with device not found message. So only Brocade branded USB is supported.

TechHelp24, if a browser is not supported, then Brocade should send a notice on the website when someone downloads a file. If they don't, then it sure does seem supported to the end user. And FWIW, the second download was with Chrome as well, I just told it not to auto-unzip.
