  • 1.  EMC vdx-6740b - good for any firmware?

    Posted 07-12-2018 07:30
    hi there,

    I have inherited a EMC vdx-6740b. I realize that "b" bit is nowhere to be found here, or I failed to find it. I looked around at EMC/Dell sites searching for firmware and it felt like this product(but whole "portal" felt a bit clunky) has been neglected.

    Latest firmware available there is Network OS 6.0.2e which seems quite behind what I find here. So what I hope for is that an expert can confirm that firmware from extremenetworks is good and can be used on those vdx-6740b.
    Anybody could clarify what that EMC's switch actually is and is it good for/with extremenetworks' firmware?
    many thanks, L.

    EMC VDX-6740B is a Native Brocade VDX-6740.
    VDX Series switch was acquired by Extreme Networks, so I'm assuming EMC don't longer support those platforms.
