the creation of the factory with different firmware version


Tell me whether it is possible to create a factory between the switches HP StorgeWorks model:300 OSVersion:6.1.0.a and Brocade 5100 OSVersion:7.0.0c ?

7.0.0c can interoperate in a Fabric with 6.1.0e or later.

 

keep in mind both release are very old, I would suggest to upgrade to newest 7.3 or 7.4

Firmware update removes the data from the switch ?

No, but generally is recommended to backup the config.
