Brocade 8470 and CISCO

Is there a whitepaper available on how to connect the brocade 8470 to Cisco ethernet networks?

Re: Brocade 8470 and CISCO

Thanks, that was helpful.  Now we have two 8470's in a chassis (bays 7/8 and 9/10) which are connected to cisco switches in the existing network (one port from each).  The switchports are configured as switchport mode access.  The ports on the cisco are setup as lacp.  What has to be done on the brocade switches for this to work.  Without the lacp, we could ping out from the blade servers, but when lacp is configured and the nics in the blade server are aggregated, we can't ping out anymore.

Can you post your PortChannel config of your cisco and bladeswitch?
