Brocade Firmware Download prior 6.x???

Hi to all,


maybe it's by design but I want to update our very, very old Silkworms (E200) to the newest possible firmware release.

Currently they stay on v5.0.1b


As I've read in a post, I have to perform some steps between this release and tha last possible 6.2.2g, but where can I get the releases? As I know I will need 5.0.1d -> 5.2.3 -> 5.2.3c -> 6.0.1a -> 6.1.2c.


Any ideas where I can get the releases, because the oldest one that I can download is 6.2.0GA...?


Thanks for any suggestions...

Re: Brocade Firmware Download prior 6.x???

Sorry, but releases prior to 6.2 are no longer supported, and will not be made avail for download. However, if one wants to put a Brocade switch under a support contract, and as the sweetener to getting covered, one were to ask for 'best effort' in getting the switches upgraded to a supported version - that might be possible. Contact your local Brocade sales office for assistance. 


Best of luck,
