Hi, read the release notes of FOS 7 - in there you will see a compatibility table listing your switch model and a minimum Fabric OS version. If it's lower than the minimum you'll have problems.

Hi Brian,

I have moved your discussion thread to the Data Center SAN Forum as that will be the best place to get your question answered.
