BNA 14.0.1 GA has been published to the usual location.
From the release notes, under "New Enhancements":
"Network OS platform support
Network OS 7.0"
Lots of other RFEs in there, mostly SAN-related, but some might be relevant to you, e.g. MAPS policy editing.

I know, one of the TAC engineers was kind enough to provide me with the installation package a few hours "earlier".
I did upgrade succesfully from 12.4.4 to 14.0.1 but I'm still not able to add devices running NOS7.0 to BNA.
The TAC engineer is looking into it, I can always share ticket number with you via MP.

Well, BNA server tries to discover the device but ends up showing the following error message :
"A.B.C.D did not respond to SNMP".
SNMP configuration is pretty straight forward :
snmp-server contact email@example.com
snmp-server location "xyz"
snmp-server sys-descr fab02-par02
snmp-server enable trap
snmp-server community ABC
snmp-server host 172.16.49.211 ABC
snmp-server host 172.16.49.44 ABC
snmp-server host 172.16.49.50 ABC
It's not an IP connectivity issue as I'm able to reach the fabric from the BNA server. It's a four node ethernet fabric running as logical-chassis. Result is the same if I try polling either virtual-fabric mgmt IP or physical switchs' mgmt IPs.
I had a case (#1602619) opened regarding this issue but the TAC engineer said it would be solved with BNA 14.0.1.
I appreciate all the help you can bring to solve this issue.

Yes, as I thought, you need to configure SNMP view settings. See here for more info https://lkhill.com/brocade-vdx-snmp-changes/
You can test this using snmpwalk. Until you get SNMP working, the BNA version doesn't matter.
