About Brocade CP

Hi All,

 

I have brocade 300 and brocade 5000 switches.

Is all model have two CP or any specific model only have two CP?

 

Please clarify me on this.

All/almoust Stand-alone Switch have Embedded Control Processor Onboard, excepted few models - application switches - like 7500, 7600, 7800, those models have have separated CP Board insight.

 

another story is in Directors Class Switches, i.e. 48000 and DCX family.

 

Directors fit TWO Control Processors, the One is Active the Second is Standby
