Fabric OS and license question for obsolete switch



I recently bought an old IBM 2005-16B switch for my home lab. It came with 8 ports licensed and FOS 5.3.0


I can't find older FOS versions anywhere. I got 6.2.2g, but it requires older versions to upgrade. Does anyone know where can I download FOS 6.0.x and FOS 6.1.x?


Also, the switch has only 8 ports licensed. It's an obsolete switch that I paid U$S50 for it... is there anyway to activate the missing ports?


Thanks in advance.
