--->>>> And in wich part of the brocade´s web can I found

in the Fabric OS release notes

e.g. if Fabric OS v5.3.x loaded in brocade 3900, EOS 9.2.x is supported and certified.

If you are satisfied with the responses please mark as 'Answered'.
If not, just let me know I can see to get more info.
I would appreciated if you rate the threads.

Thank you.

you have to set the switch in the correct Interop-Mode bevore ISL.

See the Fabric OS Command Reference Manuals for details.

pls check the licenses like fabric / trunking licenses for ISL. in this case you are going to merge the sws in to the Fabric.not only connecting ISL.

Nothing of Trunking License is required, as follow reason.

For the McDATA 4400 nothing of "trunking licenses for ISL" is available, and a Fabric License is Installed by Default in 3900.

check the 3900 Lic as xdomain license or full fabric license.you may face issue if it is xdomain license and you have more SWs in the fabric.
