Hello,
I'm planning to upgrade my ICX switches (I have a bunch of them). They are at versions 08030e and 08030k. I'm new in brocade technology and I'm trying to figure it out how to choose the version for the upgrade. I saw the last version 0807 is supported by my switches, but I'm not sure if I can upgrade directly to that or if I have to follow a sequence of upgrades to finally install the last version. Can some one highlight me on this, please?

Thanks in advance for your help

Hey Laura, 

I would advise staying on 8030 code stream for now as it is the most mature. I would say move to the latest patch, however. Generally speaking you can make a direct jump from 8030 to 8070. If there are caveats, they should be listed in the release notes. If you are ever uncertain, you can open a case and TAC will let you know as well.
