FOS Upgrade Path (FOS v6.4.0c -> v7.3.1a)

  • 1.  FOS Upgrade Path (FOS v6.4.0c -> v7.3.1a)

    Posted 06-30-2015 07:45 AM

    Good afternoon

     

    I currently have 2 x SAN40B-4 (IBM Branded Brocade) running FOS v6.4.0c

     

    I would like to know if anyone can point me to some documentation from Brocade that would show me the required upgrade path to take for these 2 switch's

     

    My end goal would be to end up at v7.3.1a as my other switch's

     

    Thanking you all in advance

    Google for "Brocade target path". This document will guide you up to 7.2 and then you will add one more step to 7.3.1a.

    You can go 6.4.0c -> 7.0.0a->7.1.1c->7.2.0a->7.3.1a

     

    6.x->7 some bizarrre reason for me did not work over scp, I had to use ftp.  Once on 7, the remaining upgrades were able to use scp

    I'm not sure why you advise using such an early and unstable versions for 7.0 and 7.2, while target path recommendations are 7.0.2c/d/e and 7.2.1a/b/c/d/e for these steps.
