Hi

Currently my little network is getting a upgrade

We are getting

Brocad 8/24P 8G BASE SWITCH

Servers will be connected in switch as well

Dual switches etc into everything

I have done the CCNA and heaps of MS stuff

Not too much experience with this type of equipment

Please let me know where to start.. very lost

Thanks and looking forward to sending some time in here

Re: need help in deciding where to start

You might get a better response posting this here:

If you are new to SAN, start by enrolling for the FC 101 class, which is in an introduction to Fibre Channel. Go to the Login & Register box on this page: Education and you can take that class for free. Without knowing much more, this is all I can recommend at this point.

Re: need help in deciding where to start

Well, the FC 101 will help you prepare for the Brocade Accredited Data Center Specialist. From there, you can go on to BCFA (fabric administrator) and the BCFP (fabric professional). Have a look at this page: Certification and Accreditation Programs and the pyramid graphic. You can download the Program Overview guide for more information. Then, feel free to email me directly at jcannata@brocade.com.

Good luck on your path to certifications.
