Upgrading Brocade 4024 - Firmware 5.2.1b -> latest

Anyone have any gotchas on upgrading from firmware 5.2.1.b to the latest for a brocade 4024 fabric switch on an HP C7000 chasis? Also any help on upgrading would be very grateful thanks in advanced.

You should follow the HP guide lines and use the latest HP supported FOS code.

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=3185345&prodTypeId=3709945&prodSeriesId=3185340&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=54

Since FOS 6.0 only single step updates are allowed. 5.3.x --> 6.0.x --> 6.1.x --> 6.2.x

Brocade provides under the documentation section a FOS code update best practise guide.

I hope this helps,

Andreas
