Brocade 8470 to SX1600

I'm looking for a configuration guide to connect the 8470 to our SX1600 core switch for delivering the ethernet network portion to the blade that are in our H chassis. The SAN part will be done after via the FC ports on the 8470. For the ethernet portion, ww will use the 10 GbE ports of the 8470..

Anyone knows where to find the configuration guide?

Hi Mathieu,

IBM's official Installation & User Guide

http://download.boulder.ibm.com/ibmdl/pub/systems/support/system_x_pdf/brocade_switch_installation_and_user_guide.pdf

And a IBM Redbook, postet by a guy some days ago. Which is pretty good.

If you have trouble with these IO Modules, just ask - We used them several times so far.

Thanks for the response Maik, but I've found last week the cmsh command and all I need to configure the module and the 10 GB trunks.

Regards.
