Fabric OS Support End-Of-Life

Can anyone point me to where the end-of-life or end-of-support documentation is for Brocade FOS?  The link in the OS release notes get redirected to a new page that doesn't have that information.

Re: Fabric OS Support End-Of-Life

Just polling again, is there somewhere a document with EOS/EOA for Fabric OS versions?

Thank you for the answer, Marian

But, I see only a document with FOS 7.1.x EOA

I am looking for dates for the 7.2 that we are using. The SanHealth reports that is not target any longer, does that mean that we must update?

Hello,

 

if its not on this list it still supported.

Keeping FOS on highest recommendated level is one of the best practices in environment.

 

Anyway its not issue at all to keep FOS for 7.2 but if you have possibility you may upgrade to 7.4.x regarding 8Gb switches
