Is it possible to create a USB stick for configuration backups or firmware updates yourself. ( SANdisk or other )
Or do I really need an original Brocade USB stick?
If so, what do I do if it is no longer available

Thank you for your comment. This has actually been brought up internally lately and we are in discussions with the SW Developers to see what can be done to better support 3rd party USB devices going forward.
For a normal user, there is nothing that you can do to format or manipulate a USB device to get the VDX to recognize it. In the past the VDX devices were locked down to only recognize and mount "Brocade" branded USBs. If you have an urgent need, I recommend you create a case with our TAC team so that we can work with you and attempt to force the VDX to recognize your USB device.
