What is the Brocade 3850 End Of Support date ?

Hi there, I need to replace one OEM IBM 2005-H16 (Brocade 3850) but I'm concerned if license transfering between chassis will be allowed. Need to know the EOS date prior replace chassis. Thanks. Renato.

Greetings renator,


The Brocade announcement for EOL'ing the 3850 went out on 2/28/2006.  The EOS (end-of-support) Date is 5 years thereafter and is 2/28/2011.


Please keep in mind there may be some variance from IBM specific dates to the above dates, this should give you a ballpark, but the years should be the same.
