Customer needs to backup config to usb stick

Hello folks,

I have a customer who is willing to backup SAN switches configuration onto USB sticks so that reconfiguration can be done easily after an HW replacement.

He wants to use commands such as :

switch:admin> usbStorage -e command.
switch:admin> configupload -USB config.txt


Switches models are :




They are all running 7.0.0c.


To be able to recognize the USB stick when inserted to the USB port, is this mandatory to use a branded Brocade USB stick ?

If yes, what is the part number ?
