recommended fos for 200E(DS-220B) to connect to 8G hba (qlogic 2562)

Hi,

Is there a minimum FOS for a 200E to connect & succesfully autonegotiate to an 8G hba (qlogic 2562)?

Thanks!

FOS v6.2.2b or higher ( v6.2.2f is latest avaiòlable release )

you should set Speed on both site HBA and Switch Port Fixed at 4GB

I've recd recomendations to set the switch port to G, do you think this is necessary?

Currently, the switches are at 5.3.0a, is this incompatible with connecting to a 8g hba?

I'm dealing with a cranky customer and need to provide more details than normal in order to get the resolution plan approved.

Thanks for your help!

--->>> Currently, the switches are at 5.3.0a, is this incompatible with connecting to a 8g hba?

As mentioned in my preview post, v6.2.2b is the Supported Release.

FOS 5.3.0a is very old - around 5 years - I don't think change the port mode solve the problem.

Does not change the situation if not supported, and BTW. customer have to approved a Supported Solutions Plan, end of discussions, otherwise say the customer he shold looking for another Partner.

For me it work like this the Customer as to do what I say.
