McData ED-64M ISL with Brocade DCX

Hi,

I've 4 x ED-64M, currently the fabric are operated as (ED64_SW1 ISL ED64_SW3) and (ED64_SW2 ISL ED64_SW4).
Right now we plan to add 2 more DCX to cater for more ports so it would become (ED64_SW1 ISL ED64_SW3 ISL DCX_SW5) and (ED64_SW2 ISL ED64_SW4 ISL DCX_SW5).


McData ED64 are currently on InteropMode: McData Fabric 1.0, firmware 09.09.03.2.
Brocade DCX FOS 6.1.0 and what is the Interopmode I should configure? Can I configure it as InteropMode: McData Open Fabric (IM3)?

I've done the similiar configuration for smaller fabric (DS4700 ISL DS5100), but this is the first time I explore DCX and ED64.
Is there anything I need to take care of? Appreciate for any advise. Thanks.


Thanks.

Chin
