We have netsight 6.3 and a mixture of X450 (G1), X460 (G1) X440 G2. Archive, image upgrade, monitoring works fine for G1 gear. I am having issues with image upgrade on 440 g2 from Inventory Manager. It says unknown image binary family.
Thanks

My recommendation is to upgrade to 8.3, Extreme has done a lot of work moving from Java based app to the web based app, and it is pretty nice.

Per release notes, 440g2 wasn't supported until 7.0. 450g2 was supported in 6.3.
Thanks, what is the recommended management platform for Extreme Switching?

XMC 8.3 works really well with some 1000 switches for one of my customers. They have a mix with X450e being the oldest and X870 being the newest switches. In between those models you find G1's and G2's of more or less all sorts. A lot has changed from NS 6.3 and for the most part it's for the better I think. I don't think you'll be able to keep your network maps though. They were lost in some upgrade step for us. Open a TAC case for this if you really neeeeed your layouts in the maps to be converted into the new format.
