HP-branded B-series sanswitch firmware updates

Hello,

 

We have a couple of SANswitches with very old firmware (FOS version4.4). We want to upgrade them to the latest version.

If we directly try to upgrade to FOS version 5.2.3 (oldest downloadable version on the HP website), the firmwaredownload program says we need first to go to version 5.0.

But this version isn't available anymore.

 

Does anyone know where we can find this version on the net?

 

Thank's in advance,

 

Lucvca

Hello!

 

If you have warranty/support by HP they can provide you with the firmware.

 

You could get the 5.0.0 firmware from IBM's page (links to Brocade.com):

Click on the 'Release 6 Firmware' link.

Some version 5.x firmware files are still accessible for older SAN switch models.

For BladeEnclosure switches you can use (read Release Notes):
