We are running 2 brocade 300 switches (non-HA) and would like to know how do we upgrade the firmware.
Also do we need to upgrade the kernel and bootprom as well?
penbrfc1:root> versionKernel: 220.127.116.11Fabric OS: v6.2.0cMade on: Mon Feb 23 19:36:58 2009Flash: Wed Mar 31 22:55:47 2010BootProm: 1.0.6
If we upgrade the firmware, do we need to upgrade one version at a time and then reboot and follow by the next until we reach the latest? If brocade have latest 10 versions since 6.2.0c, will that mean we need to repeat 10 times of the upgrade steps ?
Are there any upgrade path from 6.2.0c to the latest which required us to have minimum reboot?
Which link I could get the documentation of the upgrade?
Could we do non-disruptive upgrade as below for brocade 300.
1) non-disruptive from 6.2.0c => 6.3.2e
2) non-disruptive from 6.3.2e ==> 6.4.3h3) non-disruptive from 6.4.3h => 7.0.2e
4) non-disruptive from 7.0.2e => 7.1.2b5) non-disruptive from 7.1.2b => 7.2.1f6) non-disruptive from 7.2.1f => 7.3.1cWe need non-disruptive path for our upgrade.
Do you we need to apply new license after each stage of the upgrade or after the final version?Thanks.
