    Hi,

     

    quick question.

    Can I connect a Brocade 6510 with the current Fabric OS with a Brocade 5100 with Fabric OS v6.3.1a?

     

    Thanks for your help...

    current = latest GA FOS for 6510 ist v8.2.1b, required at least FOS v7.3.1 or higher

     

    in feew words, you have to upgrade the 5100 in order to ISL with newest FOS

    Thank you for the quick response..

     

    As the 5100 are EOL and EOS, how do I get the FOS Version?

     

    And can I update directly from OS v6.3.1a?

    you cannot update in one step from 6.3.x to 7.3.x, for details refer the FOS target path, simple seacrh here in the community there are a lot of Thread about.

     

    FOS download ist available only with active maintenance contract
