I am looking for an upgrade path for my Brocade FC switches to the latest supported version. The current version is:
Fabric OS (swd77)Fabos Version 5.3.0
cpu : 440GP Rev. Crevision : 4.129 (pvr 4012 0481)bogomips : 499.71machine : Brocade Silkworm440
I assume this is a Brocade 200e switch which latest version is FOS 6.2.2g.
So your upgrade path could be 5.3.0 - > 6.0.1a - > 6.1.2c - > 6.2.2g. Non Disruptive.
as fair as I remeber, 440GP CPU was built-in in the Brocade 4100 and 4900
both are supported by latest FOS v6.4.3h
log as admin on the CLI, in "switchshow" command you find a line SwitchType and post here the result.
Here is the output.

SwitchType 34 is the brocade 200E, and supported as Thomas mention till FOS 6.2.2
keep in mind you need to do intermediate Upgrade Step, recommended upgrade path is
From 5.3 >FOS v6.0.0c >FOS v6.1.2c >FOS v6.2.2g
be aware, you cannot upgrade in one step from 5.3 to 6.2 and is not supported !
Thank you Antonio,
I will get the FOS bundles and plan for this upgrade.
Thank you once again!
