Brocade 6.4.0C any known issue with NPIV?

I am getting below error when I use NPIV on AIX installed P7 Frame.

$ hsumm msp205nvio2k/general/errpt.out|more

as per IBM, "There are some known issues with McData/Brocade switches in a mixed fabric that cause npiv logins to fail. So you may probably be running into this situation if you have that switch configuration".

Is this a known issue?
