 Greetings superuser888,

 

Referencing Technical Support Bulletin: TSB-2014-199-A, Both FOS 6.x and FOS 7.x are affected.  For the 7500, the latest supported FOS version was v6.4.3, the patched version for you would be v6.4.3f3.  You can download this from either MyBrocade (when they become available) or your predefined switch vendor's (ie IBM, Dell, HP, etc) download page.  

 

Now for all other version of FOS in general, here are the patch levels:

 

  • v6.2.2/v6.2.2f9
  • v6.4.2/v6.4.2a3
  • v6.4.3/v6.4.3f3
  • v7.0.0/7.0.0d1
  • v7.0.2/v7.0.2e1
  • v7.1.0/7.1.0cb
  • v7.1.1/v7.1.1c1
  • v7.1.2/7.1.2b1
  • v7.2.0/v7.2.0d6
  • v7.2.1/v7.2.1c1
  • v7.3.0b

If you require explicit details, I'd recommend opening a support ticket or feel free to raise any further questions you may have here and I'll do my best to get you answers..

Actually, I do have another question. :-)

 

If I upgrade the Brocade 7500 to FOS v6.4.3f3 will that be compatible with the attached Brocade 5100/5300s being at FOS v7.3.0b (LSAN config)? And should I upgrade the 7500 first?

 

Thanks
