    In the Customer Support Portal under Software Downloads. You can search on FOS and filter the results by Software

    Sorry, it says "No Data Found"

    It shows only TSBs and docs, if I mark to not show docs, and only software, it says  "no data found"

    In "Product Search" box, select "Fiber Channel Networking", in "Keyword" box, type "v7.3.2" and press "Search" button. You should see Fabric OS v7.3.2a, v7.3.2b listed for Windows and Linux alongwith corresponding documentation and MIBs.

    I've reviewed your steps but i cant find anything. Are you sure that its possible to download FOS package without valid account an SN or Site ID assigned to it ?

    @Amol Sonawane 

     

    as "Brocade/Broadcom" Emplyes, whatever is you Job, you have automatically grant access to Download.

     

    for that reason such indication how to search for a FOS package create a confusion by all other user.

     

    as sayed by Marian @Marian Bezeg  no Maintenace Contract, no Download.

    You can not download Brocade FOS without an entitled account.   Simply browsing to Broadcom's fibre channel download page provides only documentation downloads.  You must be logged into Broadcom with a valid account.   Alternatively, if you have purchased your Brocade switch through an OEM (IBM, EMC, etc) and have a support contract with the OEM then you should be able to download FOS via the OEM's support portal.    Keep in mind, FOS is software and therefore Broadcom/Brocade must keep track of who is downloading it and the locations in the world to where the code is being downloaded.

    Hello,

     

    i don't think so that reason why the FOS is not available without valid contract is to track location or country where the code would be downloaded. I guess that its more related to new features and bussines around new FOS releases.

     

    Try to imagine, if the FOS will be available without valid contract, then you will be able to upgrade your SAN switches (and to be honest its not big deal) to the newest FOS with all of new implemented features and bug fixes for free.

     

    So from my perspective, the reason why the FOS is not for free, is that we are not dealing with opensource.

    Hi,

     

    indeed I wasn't able to find any FOS code either searching for FOS 7.x or trying to choose it by product name. ( see attachement )
    I'm also curious for the solution for future usage.

     

    Regards, Tamas.
