    thank you,

    so my understanding now is as following: (please correct me)

    1- for the v6.1.0c i have to follow:

    6.1.0c > 6.2.2f > 7.0.0x > 7.0.2d > 7.1.1c > 7.2.0a

     

    2- for the v6.4.0c:

    6.4.0c > v6.4.3e > 7.0.2d > 7.1.1c > 7.2.0a

     

    is that right please?

    thanks

    hussein,

     

    --->>> so my understanding now is as following: (please correct me)

    1- for the v6.1.0c i have to follow:

    6.1.0c > 6.2.2f > 7.0.0x > 7.0.2d > 7.1.1c > 7.2.0a

     

    2- for the v6.4.0c:

    6.4.0c > v6.4.3e > 7.0.2d > 7.1.1c > 7.2.0a

     

    no, the procedure is incorrect, please follow this step.

     

    1- since you are on v6.1.0c continue with:

    > 6.2.2f > 6.3.2d > 6.4.3d or e > 7.0.2c or d > 7.1.1c > and finaly to 7.2.0c, if you have access.

     

    2- since you are on v6.4.0c continue with:

    6.4.3d or e > 7.0.2c or d > 7.1.1c > and finaly to 7.2.0c, if you have access.

     

    by 2. theoretically, you can upgrade from current 6.4.0c to 7.0.2, but i would follow brocade suggestion and upgrade first to 6.4.3d as descripted in upgrade path procedure.

     

    Note, FOS 7.2.0c close Critical DEFECT reported in a and b release.

    Hello Antonio,

     

    I need to upgrade b300 from 6.4.0.0 to the latest version 7.3.0c, does the same upgrade path applies?

     

    Regards,
