brocade 300 work with brocade 200e

we have a pair of 200e fc switch. Recently, one of the switch fail. And this model is no longer avaliable. Therefore, we only have the option to buy a brocade 300 for replacement.

The currently topoloty is as below:

The firmware version for 200e and 300 will be different. I am wondering if there any issue to simply replace with a brocade 300.

Thank!

As there is no interconnection between 2 switch, I am wondering if the different firmware/FOS will cause any potientail problem.

Thanks!

Hi joeng

Seeing as you have no seperate Fabrics you can run both switches with the different version of Fabric OS , but I would personally get the both up to the same levels , or as close as possible.

Re: brocade 300 work with brocade 200e

so that means brocade 300 can be clustered with 200E if both has the compatible FabOS ?
