I’m upgrading some VDX6740’s soon, and this will be the first time upgrading Brocade for me and I would like to clarify some confusion I’ve got from the documentation.
The release notes and the upgrade guide talks about running the firmware download command on the individual switches in logical cluster mode but what is giving me grief is the file option. The documentation in many examples quote the file to download as release.plist. I’ve gone looking for release.plist and it’t buried in sub-directories SWBD1000,SWBD1001,SWBD1002,SWBD1004,SWBD1005,SWBD1006 . . . . . etc.
So which directory am I to specify in my download “directory /” firmware download command?
firmware download logical-chassis scp host x.x.x.x user ****** password ******** directory /VDX6740-Firmware/?????? file ????? rbridge-id 3,5

If you upgrade with ftp, you can mark “nos7.2.0” as root folder on ftp, in this case you can only use “/” for directory and command will look like that:
firmware download ftp host 126.96.36.199 user username password password directory / coldboot
firmware download default-config ftp host 188.8.131.52 user username password password directory /
