ISL between VDX6740 and Brocade 300

Hi, 

 

Is it possible to form ISL using a FC port on VDX with Brocade 300? Is FC router required as documented in NOS Admin guide version 5.x

The following Network OS Fibre Channel port types are supported:
• E_Port: Can be used to connect only to an EX_Port on a FC SAN with Fibre Channel Routing
configured.

 

FC ports can connect to a FC switch in a Fabric OS network through two methods:
• Using an Inter-Switch Link (ISL) connection from an FC E_port on a VDX 6740 switch to a FC
router's EX_Port; this in turn connects to the FC switch in the Fabric OS network. The VDX FC ports
are configured as E_Ports for this connection. Refer to Connecting to an FC Fabric through an FC
Router on page 160.
• Using a direct connection from an FC port on a VDX 6740 switch's to a F_Port on a FC router in a
Fabric OS network. The VDX FC ports are configured as N_Ports through the Access Gateway
feature. Refer to Using Access Gateway on page 167.
