I have an existing san fabric configuration w\ McData 4500 managing a Brocade 3800 all is well.
I want to replace my existing 3800 with a Brocade 300. On the 300 I have set the Domain ID to 98, set the interoperability mode to "McDATA Open Fabric Mode"
Though everytime I connect the uplink from the 4500 the 300, the 300 remain as the principal and the link goes down?
Do i have set the the new switch domain 3?
I am at alode.

--->>> On the 300 I have set the Domain ID to 98, set the interoperability mode to "McDATA Open Fabric Mode"
The 300 is also set as IM3, in this case the Domain ID must be range beetwen 97-127.
When you set the 300 DID 98 must set the McDATA DID 2.
Sorry, i have here a mistake.
I mean by 98 must set the McDATA DID higher as 2

the 4500 is curently set to
Preferred Domain ID: 1
Domain ID Offset: 96
Switch Priority: Principal
and the 3800 is domain ID 98
I set my new 300 switch to mirror the old 3800 so I gave it the same ID. Should I have given the new switch a different Domain ID

98 is definitely wrong, because this ID is used by the 3800, and you cannot use two same ID in the same Fabric.
You have to use DID 99 on the Brocade 300
In this case you have follow Domain ID Range
McDATA DID 1
3800 DID 98 = 2
300 DID 99 = 3

OK, but 99 must work.
They were gone in the right way on begin the Threads to use DID 3 in the 300 but Vice-versa also 99 because you are in McDATA mode, also 99 is 3.
Please let me know.
