I´m interested in multicast groups in a Brocade DCX, however I cannot figure if its limit for multicast groups is 255 or 256 groups.
On one hand there are a few (I think) datasheets, such as this one (http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/data_sh
I'd really appreciate if anybody could help me or least point out some more conclusive technical documentation.

-> ....why exacly would the limit be 255 instead of 256 groups?
I've such DOC that explained the used groups 1-255, but unfortunately cannot find at the moment.
I believe..... this restriction is caused by Maximum User Port Size / Capacity in the Fabric.
0 and 256 are Switch specific base Groups, and cannot be used.
