Software to manage Fabric?

Hi!

we use 4 Brocade FC Switchs (FOS 6.4.2) devided in two fabrics. With the standard Web Tools we are able to manage the most tasks, but if we search for a device (device xy is on Switch port ? ) we have to know in front on which switch the device is connected and then login to that switch .

What we are looking for is a software to manage the 2 fabrics with all ports on a single point of view, with the ability to seach for WWNs.

Is there a free software from brocade?

BNA is Free, however the Professional Release is capable to manage only One/Single Fabric.

For Professional Plus you need to purchase a License

We are also looking for the free "Brocade Network Advisor Professional" version to use with upgrading an existing DFCM pro v10.4.x installation on one client.

Unfortunately, the url "www.brocade.com/NetworkAdvisorPro" that we found in one of the brocade manuals for migrating from DFCM to BNA. points to a missing web page on the Brocade web site.

Professional, Professional Plus and Enterprise, are all included in the same Package, you can decided during the Installation Procedure the Version you want to Install.

All Manuals, - included Migration Manual - are included in the same Zip File/Package.
