Re: update switch 2/8v (brocade 3250)

Your switch is EOL but you can still upgrade to 4.4.2b or the version available to you and supported.

The steps are outlined here.

Do not try to locate the release.plist file on your FTP server, its somewhat like an invisible file.

?? Looking at the "HP STORAGEWORKS B-SERIES FC SWITCH CONNECTIVITY STREAM" document in SPOCK*, the recommended firmware for a HP StorageWorks SAN Switch 2/8V appears to be v5.3.2c.
The update sequence would be: 4.2.2b > 4.4.xx > 5.0.xx > 5.2.xx > 5.3.2c

When in doubt refer to the HP StorageWorks release notes for the given fw.
"HP StorageWorks Fabric OS 5.3.2c
release notes"
Supported product models
HP StorageWorks SAN Switch 2/8V (Brocade 3250)
HP StorageWorks SAN Switch 2/16V (Brocade 3850)
HP StorageWorks SAN Switch 2/32 (Brocade 3900)
HP StorageWorks SAN Director 2/128 (Brocade 24000 Director)

So yes the Brocade 3250 (2/8V) is supported with 5.3.2c firmware.
For 5.3.2c and older interim fw you will also need: ftp://swsan:Rankles0@ftp.usa.hp.com
