I created the file .BSH using an old version (4.0.5) of SAN Health. The latest version is available for download from https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.brocade.com_sanhealth&d=DwICAg&c=jf_iaSHvJObTbx-siA1ZOg&r=I6E4WdVrF95oyhKgmlWw9cnmLv3graWbo33zD4yFziM&m=cER6_RKurVZP2oWCYLvdVvwM5LZJhYB2QSVz6H3Ddjc&s=-h0uHDzULHdSPJfykqwF_yPDCLm2_eoSYXQ49u83qgk&...
So i need to upgrade my existing SAN HC software to this latest , so could you help me to download the exact software and get it installed and finally run it . As this is bit important task for our account so would need this upgrade soon and run the report using the new HC tool. Also do we need license for this , if so from where we should be getting . I am already using this tool but a older version.

SAN Health is FREE, no License is required.
just download latest release and start the installer, there are not upgrade path required.

SAN Health won't require a reboot. It really is as simple as a 10 second download and a 30 second install. Please download the latest version from http://www.brocade.com/en/support/support-tools/support-download-san-health-diagnostics-capture.html.

Thanks . I have to generate the SAN HC report for 6 director/switches , out of which 4 x brocade & 2 are MCdata. We are aware that they are very old and unsupported version . So could you please let me know whether the current version of "Brocade SAN Health Diagnostics Capture" would support this switches/directors and would fetch the complete switch port details ,including the correct amount of fibre details for procuring new switches and cables etc.
1.Brocade 48000 (Model 2109-M48) Firmware ver=FOS v 6.1.0c
2. McData Intrepid 6140 (Model 2027-140) . Firmware ver=09.07.02.1

Yes. You can see the supportability matrix on the SAN Health Online Help at https://community.brocade.com/t5/SAN-Health-Utility/SAN-Health-Online-Help/ta-p/3607.

I have 6 x 48000 director with 4 blades @48 LW port each . Now i have 3 Datacenter and 2 x 4800 director at Site A & Site B and 2x Director at site C.
These switches will again form 2 fabrics. Each fabric contains 1 SAN switch from each DC interconnected by 4 * ISL’s using accounts own dark fibre network.
Directors are connected using a mesh topology with 4 x ISL’s between each director.
So could you help me how to configrue the ISL with new switches and configure them properly with steps.
Additional ISL’s may be required between Site A and site B for cross-DC SVC cluster .
