I would be very gratefulif some one could describe the process in using it and pitfulls etc..
I am familar with the brocade switches and sans..but have never had to do a brocade FOS upgrade.Done evas etc no issues.
The person who normally did this, the FOS is away.

Re: Using SAN Loader to upgrade fimrware on Borcades.

Click on Help in the SAN Loader in the menu, and you will get the required instructions.

All you need to do is to put the ip address, user id password and then connect to the switch.

Once you see the switch prompt on the white screen,

backup your configuration as a safeguard.
gather supportsave and store it on your PC
follow instructions in help for firmware download to switch

1. What you need to be really planning is the effect of your upgrade on the hosts.
2. Number of steps required to reach your target FOS version from your current FOS version.

Just had a look in the "Help" section .
There is no attached help files.
Looked in the install zip and nothing there.
Is this small enough to post so I can download.
