Brocade 200E firmware (looking for 6.2.2b)

Hello all,

i have an older Brocade 200E SAN Switch running Fabric OS 5 with just 8 ports licensed. This switch is just for fooling around with in my home lab (bought it cheap from eBay).

I'm looking for the last supported firmware which seems to be 6.2.2b on this model. I searched virtually everywhere on the net but it seems to be impossible to get this (somewhat outdated) software.

So ... does anybody have the file and can send me a download link?

Any help much appreciated!

Cheers

Hi Cwandel,

As you already mentioned, the 200e is very old.

It is actually it Ended support life on since 2014.

Due to EULA (End User License Agreement) with Brocade, we are legally not allowed to supply End of Support life firmware. Even if somebody would have it somewhere.

Apology for that.

Regards,

Ed

just to be sure: IBM and HP had this firmware on their PUBLIC ftp-servers for years and all of a sudden some EULA's prevents everyone to get this indeed very old software?

Brocade has been aquired by Broadcom now. Me thinks they are the culprits. As you mentioned this switch is seven years EOL and still somebody wants to sit on this software and keep a poor guy to use this old but still working equipment in a HOME LAB?

Come on ... gimme a break!

Anyway, if someone reads this and is able to help me out, just PM me. Thanks.

I'm looking for Fabric Operating System firmware v6.2.2g for Brocade 4 Gigabit SAN Switch Module (Brocade 200E) which was formerly free to download from:  ftp://download2.boulder.ibm.com/ecc/sar/CMA/XSA/079pf/0/brcd_fw_bcsw_6.2.2g_anyos_noarch.zip  (link found here: https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/fabric-operating-system-firmware-v622g-brocade-4-gigabit-san-switch-module-ibm-bladecenter  )

Don't apologize, help ...

Regards
Chris

Hi Chris,

I would agree with you. This only came into play last year, and it all came from Broadcom.

thanks,

Ed
