Re: FOS upgrade procedure from 6.1.0 to 6.3.0 and downgrade procedure

check help firmwaredownload cmd:

pls find attached the guide:

If you find this correct pls make it correct. The procedure is very simple and be ware if you ar eusing windows server for firmware upgarde then download the windows version, otherwise use unix version, the unix version is the best.The guide is for 4 Gbps but it is all same except where upgarding after 6.0 it is supported 1 step up and the downgrade the same 1 step down. But if it is 5.x.x then you can go 2 steps up and 2 steps down.
