I am new to brocade. I need help to upgrade the FOS on Brocade switches which were connected to Mainframes. We have three sites. SITE A, SITE B, SITE C . Main frames connected with FICON.
SITE A and SITE B are connected and SITE B and SITE C are remotley replicated over FCIP.
we have DCX/DCX-4s in our environment.
I planned to upgrade all the switches on same day. I have BNA 12.1.5 and I know the target path.
My questions are
1. When I am using BNA , do I need to unzip the FOS firmware file before uploading ? What is the case if I use FTP ?
2. Do I need to reboot the switches which have FCIP or Just restarting the FCIP link ? If it is only FCIP link then how to do it ?
3. please post the steps to do FOS upgrade using BNA.
Thanks and I appreciate your help .
