Firmware for AJ820A - HP B-series 8/12c SAN Switch for BladeSystem c-Class

We have AJ820A - HP B-series 8/12c SAN Switch for BladeSystem c-Class with firmware v6.4.3e

What is recommended upgrade?

I see "Firmware" with 67 versions and "Firmware - switch" with 4 versions In this link http://h20565.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=5332779&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=54

The release notes confuses me more ftp://service.boulder.ibm.com/storage/san/fos7/v7.2.0d_ReleaseNotes_v1.0.pdf

Hello,

please follow the guide

http://www.guldmyr.com/blog/brocade-san-switch-firmware-upgrades/

Update to the latest 6.4.3x and follow the instructions on the website for futher updates.

Look at Brocade homepage for targetpath OS

https://www.brocade.com/content/dam/common/documents/content-types/target-path-selection-guide/brocade-fos-target-path.pdf

The last FW for your switch from targetpath is 7.4.1d.

@SM3 - the link you gave is to IBM so that's the wrong place to get support information for you HPE B-Series 8/12c SAN Switch.  I went to www.hpe.com/support and from there clicked on HPE Servers, Storage, and Networking on the top left. And the next page, I searched for the product name.  It led me to this page: http://h20565.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=5332779&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=54 

This is a bit out of my expertise so don't know if getting the firmware from Brocade or HPE makes a difference but if what you need is there, I'd get the HPE firmware.
