    Hi expert,

    We are going to upgrade EXOS from release 15.3.2.11 to 16.2.1. Current HW is BD 8800 MSM-48c.

    Please advise if release EXOS 16.2.1 does support current HW MSM-48c? And anyone already do upgrade it? please share your experience

    Thanks!

    Hi Luc,
    When I look at release note of 16.2.1.6 version, limitations for MSM-48c are specified.



    I believe that implies the version is supported on MSM-48c.

    The version you are going to use is supported and I run it on my chassis currently. Since you are already running 15.3 all of the blades you have will be supported too. Just check the reference to confirm: http://www.extremenetworks.com/extreme-hardwaresoftware-compatibility-recommendation-matrices/extrem...

    Other then that you are good to go.

    Hi all,

    Thanks for your prompt respond. It is ok that EXOS 16.2 support HW MSM-48c. However, customer raise a question that the ExtremeXOS Release Recommendations for BD 8800-MSM48c is EXOS 16.1.3.6-patch1-9.

    Hi Luc,

    The recommended EXOS version for MSM-48c is EXOS 16.1.3.6-patch1-9. However, there is a new patch (1-11) and an EXOS version 16.1.4 with some important fixes. I would recommend you to review the Release Notes for further information regarding all the fixes. You can access the Release Notes in the link below:

    Also, please make sure the BD8k I/O cards also support that new release. That's really important.

    Hi Luc,
    The recommendation page is updated by 3 month period. And I could see the last update was 15 Sep as below:



    To be sure the exact recommended version of now, it would be better to ask GTAC after creating case.
