accordly the Transceivers Matrix - is attached - the VDX-6740 with NOS 5.0, support 8G FC SFP+
I assume this is the same with NOS 6.x

thank you for your quick response.
In all documents I read only that I can connect the VDX 6740 to a FC SAN Switch and then a FCoE Initiator can connect to the fibre fabric. But its possible to connect a FC HBA Host and a storage system (eg. a EMC VNXe) directly to the 6740? Is that possible? So I can mix FCoE and native FC?

to be honest I'm not sure if you can direct attach Native FC HBA to the Switch.
accordly the Release Notes 6.0.1a, FC is supported, but only for E_Port / F_Port
I would suggest to open a Call with Brocade or ask yu local Brocade SE.
