    I have 2 x B6505 fabric switches - i've searched for about 4 hours now on Brocade, IBM and Lenovo websites to find a download link for the BNA software. Has BNA been replaced by another product?

    All Brocade software has to be downloaded through the OEMs or partners you bought the gear from.   The OEMs/partners have to check that you have a valid support contract and don't mess with the EULA  (End User License Agreements).  Their sites usually link to the Broadcom site and provide the software for you.  If you're not able to find what you're looking for, you'll have to raise a support ticket with your OEM/partner and they'll  have to make sure you get what you need.

    Having said that, End Of Life has been announced for BNA in August 2019 , End Of Support will be 2/8/2022, so longer term you might want to consider using "SANnav Management Portal" as a replacement for BNA.
