C7000 Cisco MDS9124 Firmware upgrade from 3.1 to 5.01a

Gil needed advice on upgrading a CIsco blade SAN switch:

 

******************

 

Can someone help to answer if we can make direct upgrade from 3.1 to 5.01a (The switches are installed on C7000)

Help from Rajesh:

 

**************

 

To upgrade to NX-OS Release 5.0(1a) from SAN-OS Release 3.2(3a) or earlier, first upgrade to SAN-OS

Release 3.3(x), then upgrade to NX-OS Release 4.1(x) or 4.2(x), and then upgrade to NX-OS Release

5.0(1a).

 

If you need more details, please check the release notes for 5.1(a) which is available in the below URL.
