Upgrade path from FOS 6.3.1b to 7.3.1a

Hello peers,

 

I need to upgrade a 5300 SAN switch from 6.3.1 --> 7.3.1 but I'm struggling to find documentation regarding the advised upgrade path. I can take the switch offline to upgrade. What would be the quickest way to do this ?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi VinTech - I have seen that document but I can't see any path from 6.3.1 to 7.3.1.

 

As I can take the switch down, can i just install 7.3.1 ?

NO! Upgrade in One Step from 6.3.x to 7.3.x is not supported and not allowed.

 

you must first upgrade to 7.0.2 -> 7.1.x -> 7.2.x and finally to 7.3

 

Upgrade from 6.3 to 7.0.2 is supported, bt I would suggest one more step 6.3-> 6.4.1b or later and  then to 7.0.2
