Brocade 4Gb San Switch for HP Blade C

Hi

I want to update my 2 x Brocade 4G SAN Switches to the newest version.

At the moment i have updatede them to 5.0.5c

But when i try to update them to 5.3.0d do i get the folling error:
Cannot upgrade directly to 5.3. Please upgrade to 5.1 or 5.2 first and then upgrade to 5.3

The problem is just that there is no 5.1 or 5.2 on the hp site for download.

What do i do ? :)

Hi Nomisdk,

To download firmware for V5.2.1b,
ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/eserver/xseries/Aug07/v5.2.1b.zip

Is this the one you were looking for?

Hi Nomisdk,

I am not sure about that.
But looks like someone had a requirement similar to yours. He seems to have tried the firmware from that link and it worked for him.
