I've got the following setup:
Both switches have been inherited from other locations in my organisation.
OK, some more details:
Well, I haven't needed to set up a SAN from scratch with different vendore before, so I have never needed to look at the "advanced" settings. Frankly, I was expecting everything to work like Ethernet switches do.
I can't reset the Brocade to factory defaults without a support contract apparently, or if so I'm misunderstanding the incomprehensible instructions. I was able to reset the QLogic to default settings though.
I think these may be the important points:
Questions - well, one question really: What do I do now?

First thing to do is to reset your Brocade to its native mode as you don't have it connected to McDATA any more:
Second, it's highly recommended to upgrade switch firmware to the latest version supported by your storage vendor (Netapp). I can't read current version due to typo but you'd want to have 6.3.2d or 6.4.1b at least.
Then you'll get a normal Brocade switch where you can configure zoning and other things as necessary.
Hope this helps,

Thanks for the help. I had been experiencing a couple of other issues and wanted to follow up:
I needed to cycle power to the switch to get the CLI to respond properly. Once I did that, I disabled the switch with switchdisable, then disabled interop mode with interopmode 0 and rebooted the device.
Thanks again for pointing me in the right direction. I've been able to create aliases, zones, and a config through the CLI now with no problems.
