Is this the only mac address you see on port 2?
Sometimes, ICX advertises its Managment MAC when the port first comes up. this usually disappears after a while.
You may issue command "show chassis" on the ICX and confirm the BootProm/Management MAC.

You can, although it is not the ideal way since ports connecting switches carry multiple MAC addresses. If you see 2 MAC addresses belonging the same switch, one might be the Mgmt/BootProm MAC Address as I mentioned in my previous reply
LLDP is the best way to check uplink neighbour switches.

Make sure you enable FDP on the Brocades (fdp run). Issue the command "sho fdp neighbor" to see the connected switches.
If you have the Brocade connected to a Cisco switch, ensure cdp is enabled on the Cisco and on the Brocade (fdp run, cdp run). Then issue a "show fdp neighbor" from the Brocade. It will identify any Cisco switch with an asterisk. You cannot issue a "show cdp neighbor" from the Cisco and see the Brocade. It will only work from the Brocade.
