brocade FC switch firmware upgrade

Hi all,

Our company has been supporting a lot of Brocade FC switches (mainly Brocade 300) from different vendors; namely Netapp, Dell and IBM. From Netapp support site (, I can easily download the latest firmware files (or FabricOS files). Other vendors, Dell and IBM, has really problematic web sites and downloading the switch firmware is painful.

My question is that can I apply the firmware downloaded from Netapp site to the other vendor's switches? I think the answer is yes but I need to be 100% sure if you admit. Can you help please?

Thank you,

Re: brocade FC switch firmware upgrade


the firmware is the same, so you should not have any problems.
