Firmware clarification/upgrade Brocade/McData 6140 Director

On our McData 6140 directors, we are currently at firmware version 09.06.02 4. Is this the same as 9.6.2? (If so - it's confusing.) What is the latest firmware release for this device? What is the Brocade web address where all the firmware upgrades are posted?

Yes, 09.06.02 and 9.6.2. is the same Release. 4 = Build Release.

Latest Available GA = General Available is 9.9.0

Download only with Active Maintenance Contracts by Brocade.

As far as the latest release and firmware level, as was posted above GA is 9.9.0, but the latest supported by vendors varies.  Some only support 9.8.1.  You should get the firmware from whomever your support contract is with, usually a vendor like EMC or HDS, or through Brocade if applicable.

supported and / or available are TWO different Words.

BTW, FYI!

EMC, HDS, IBM, and HP have approved this release 9.9.0.
