I have heard that there are some incompatibility issues between the DCX8510 and the McData 6140 being on the same SAN and or ISLing between them. Anyone have any information on this?

Hi wduglin. FOS 7.x and higher no longer supports Interopmode(s) needed for ISL connections to the legacy McData fabrics. I believe this is what you are referring too. Here is a statement from the FOS 7.x Release Notes.
Native Connectivity (M-EOS interoperability)
So to connect the two fabrics, Fibre Channel Routing would need to be used.
