Hello All,

We wish to upgrade our Black Diamond 8810 Core switches from BootROM: 1.0.4.0 IMG: 15.3.1.4 v1531b4 to BootROM: 1.0.4.5 IMG: 15.5.4.2 v1554b2-patch1-5. Is this EXOS code going to be supported after an upgrade and/or do we need to go to a higher revision to maintain support?

Thank you,
Mykhaylo

Hi Mykhaylo,

According to the Software Lifecycle document located at http://learn.extremenetworks.com/rs/extreme/images/Extreme_Software_Status.pdf, EXOS 15.5 will be supported through April 2017

Just as an aside, we have a matrix of recommended versions for our hardware at http://documentation.extremenetworks.com/hw_sw_compatibility/HardwareSoftwareCompatibility/r_exos-re.... This matrix currently recommends a different software version than what you are proposing:

BD 8500-MSM24            EXOS 15.6.4.2-patch1-3
BD 8800-MSM48c          EXOS 15.6.4.2-patch1-3
BD 8800-MSM96            EXOS 16.1.3.6
BD 8900-MSM128          EXOS 15.6.4.2-patch1-3
