Access gateway connection

 

Hi!!

 

I have connected a Brocade 6547 (IBM Pure Flex Chassis port 31) in "Access Gateway Mode" with Brocade DCX-8510-4 (port 1/46)

 

When the port speed is set to 8G the connection is established without problems, but when the port speed is set to 16G error is generated "-Port  segmented,10:00:00:27:f8:a9:5d:02 (Long distance fabric or mode incompat)"

 

The ports of both switches supports 16G and the version Fabric OS is  v7.3.0c1

 

Can you help me?
