Firmware Upgrade EMC DS 4100B (Brocade Silkworm 4100)
Posted on 2009-05-06
I have a pair of DS4100B's I purchased used. It turns out they are running very old firmware (5.0.1d) which has a bug in which they reboot randomly every 10-12 days due to a memory leak.
Neither EMC or Brocade will sell or provide me any type of support since they were purchased used.
I have found that HP makes the firmware for their StorageWorks 4/32 model avail on the web, but they do not have old enough posted to get back far enough to follow Brocade's recommendation of upgrading no more than two versions at a time.
I am wondering if I am willing to redo the config's from scratch can I just flash to the latest 6.2.0b from HP's site and then reconfig from scratch??
