Thanks for your reply. I read thru the target path and I want to go from 7.0.0 to 7.2. My upgrade path should be 7.1.1a/b/c. I am trying to upgrade a 117 switchtype. When I downloaded the 7.1.1b firmware it did not have a 117 switchtype. I downloaded the base 7.1.1 firmware bundle and it does not have the 117 switchtype code either. The 7.2 firmware does have a 117 switchtype.
From Brocade's website problems, I found this reference:

if I remember correct, SwitchTypes 117 is a embedded Blade Switch, and you should start the upgrade accordly the Firmware Download Upgrade path without -s option and as non-disruptive
i.e. use as filename by update procedure

Again Thank-you for your response.
Yes you are correct, the switch type 117 is an embedded switch. So I think I am missing something here. Brocade does not support a two version upgrade, correct.
So I am current at 7.0.0.x on my switch type 117. I want to upgrade the switch to 7.2.0.x.
The firmware upgrade path according to the Brocade target path would be
- 7.0.0.x to 7.1.1.c
- 7.1.1.c to 7.2.0.x
The firmware bundles I have checked including 7.1.1.c do not contain a package for switchtype 117.
So how am I supposed to upgrade from 7.0.0.x to 7.2.0.x without an intermediate 7.1.1.x version?

If you have the FOS Package zip file, and the Size File is 818.032 Byte, then you can safely procede with the Upgrade to 7.1.1c without any doubt.
Now, I hope that clarify all you questions.

Again, thank-you for your response.
I recognize the list you provided from the platform_names file of supported switch types. However, when I unzip the 7.1.1c bundle, I do not see a package for the switch type 117.
My understanding is that each one of the SWBD files is they are the code/firmware for each switchtype. So are you saying if the correct SWBD does not exist in the package the firmware download process decides which one to use?

--->>>My understanding is that each one....
you understand wrong, and spend your Time with things without any significance.
Is the package size Zipped 818.032 KB ?
if the answer is yes, procede with the upgrade.
