We are planning to upgrade Firmware of Mcdata switch and we are using EFCM basic edition .
Our switch summery is :
Type Number : 004700
Model Number : 001
Manufacturer : MCD
Serial Number : 131438P
EC Level : 1070328
Firmware Level: 09.08.01 2
Please suggest which will be the next firmware level from here?
Does it require sequential update path from 1 version to the next like we do in brocade switch ?
Please also let me know where i can download Mcdata firmware from ?
