    Hello,

     

    From 5.3.1, you have to upgrade to 6.0.0c, then to 6.1.2c and finally to 6.2.2d.

    Make sure your switch type is supported into the FOS release note.

    Merci

     

    Where can i find :

     

    - the various mandatory intermediate versions up to the target 6.2.2d (with disruptive / non-disruptive information)
    - the documentation "how to upgrade" (CLI / GUI mode, configUpload, backout plan, ...)

    - binaries

     

    Bien cordialement

    Hello,

     

    The FOS versions mentionned are not mandatory but recommended.

    Attached are the release note of 6.2.2d that explain the non disruptive and possible disruptives jumps from versions.

    Personnaly I will recommend to jump from only 1 version at a time.

    The process is a firmwaredownload that can be found on command reference guides.

    Recommendation is to save the configuration prior to the upgrades (configupload).

     

    The FOS mentionned are End Of Availability since 2012 for 6.2x release and earlier for the others.

    Hello Thierry

     

    Thank a lot for your answsers.

     

    But you said : "From 5.3.1, you have to upgrade to 6.0.0c, then to 6.1.2c and finally to 6.2.2d."

     

    In your attached Brocade document, i read that :

    "Upgrading to Fabric OS v6.2.2 is only allowed from Fabric OS v6.1.0 or later"

     

    So is this following upgrade plan correct :

     

    Base : 5.3.1

    v6.0.0c : optional or mandatory ?

    v6.1.0

    v6.1.2c : optional or mandatory ?

    Target : v6.2.2.d

     

    Best regards

    Hello,

     

    The swicth need to be upgraded to 6.0x, then to 6.1x before.

    You can choose the desired version in 6.0x but recommended is 6.0.c and for 6.1x, recommended is 6.1.2c but not mendatory.

    The bladecenter second module is in v6.2.2.d 

    ((32R1818 = Brocade 4020 (Blade FRU 1820 ) )

     

    So, plz could you confirm that the best plan is  :

     

    5.3.1 -> v6.0.0c  -> v6.1.0c -> v6.2.2.d

     

    (v6.1.1c seems bugged)
