I am looking at the release notes for NOS v7.0.0 and it is mentioned that Brocade Network Advisor (BNA) v14.1 (available separately) supports NOS v7.0.0. It is required to first upgrade to BNA v14.1 and then upgrade switches to Network OS v7.0.0.
When I go to the download page for BNA there is no BNA v14.1. I only see BNA v14.0. Am i missing something here?
Solved! Go to Solution.

No, you're not missing anything. BNA 14.0 is the currently available version.
BNA 14.0.1 will be the next version released, which should include NOS 7.0 support. That shouldn't be too far away.

Am I to understand that devices running NOS7.0 can't be handled by BNA server running versions prior to 14.1 ? If so, that would explain why hitting a wall when trying to add a 4 node 7.0 ethernet fabric on my 12.4.4 BNA server.
Could you please share BNA 14.1 estimated GA date please ?

Could you please share targeted GA for BNA 14.1 please ?
It's later this year. But you don't need 14.1 for NOS 7.0 support. BNA 14.0.1 will work. There was a typo in the NOS 7.0 release notes.

I'm asking because if I'm trusting this post, then I will have to wait for BNA 14.1 in order to upgrade because I'm in this exact case :
I was hoping BNA 14.0.1 would adress this as I'm in the process of deploying new VX gear running NOS7.0. Could you please shead some light here ?

ignore the info in the release notes
"Only Brocade Network Advisor (BNA) v14.1 (available separately) supports NOS v7.0.0."
As mentioned from Lindsay in preview post "14.1" is a Typo!!!!!!!!!!!!
NOS 7.x will be supported in upcoming Release 14.0.1
