FOS Firmware upgrade plan

Does anyone have a spreadsheet or some sort of checklist for doing FOS firmware upgrades?  Don't want to reinvent the wheel if I don't have too.

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: FOS Firmware upgrade plan

Where are you at and where do you want to go (version-wise)?

Re: FOS Firmware upgrade plan

No checklist as FW upgrades from Brocade POV are fairly straight forwards. There is however a suggested upgrade path to follow

Also from an vendor POV like HP/EMC it may not be straightforward and not necessarily the release Brocade suggest.

HP uses SPOCK and EMC has the elab navigator, for sure other vendors have there own solutions.

So the question is more something like "does our vendor support the disered FW and how do I get there without comprimising the support matrixes"
