Is that 200e and 300 ISL possible?

Hi ,

Just would like to check the possiblity of a 200e (FOS 5.2.0a) connecting to a 300 (FOS 7.0.2a) SAN switch.

Is it even possible? or do i need to upgrade the 200e?


What will be the recommended level to upgrade to...

as we know 200E need to upgrade the FOS

5.2.0a --> 5.3.x--> 6.0.x--> 6.2.x .

and 200e not support 6.3.x

Hi, in the release notes for 7.x it says which models and its corresponding firmware is interopable.

From 7.0.1b release notes it for example says: 200E needs to be running v6.2.2 or later

So upgrade firmware on the 200E and then ISL should work fine, in regards to FOS levels at least.
