I am going to merge two switches. I checking all the settings on both switches, in Silkworm 4020 Switch PID Format is Format 1 but on DS5100 switch same field is displayed as Address mode = 0. Is it good to proceed with these settings or if I have to change settings where do I change and on what switch?
DS5100 is going to be Principal switch and core switch.
Silkworm 4020 is Edge switch.
Thank you all in advance.

- PID format should be the same on both sides for the successful merge
- Switching PID format is an offline procedure
- More details depend on what hosts/devices you have in your fabrics
- Anyway you might need to be prepared for some extra efforts to make all host see all their devices after you enable your switch with new PID format
