BR-MLX-10GX24-DM in MLX-8 chassis

Hi

I need to install BR-MLX-10GX24-DM in old MLX-8 chassis (not MLXe)

I have normal switch-fabric modules.

 

What I need to replace ? All SFMs to H-SFMs (Hi-Speed Switch Fabrics) ? Power Supplies ?

Any remarks ?

Hi Michal,

 

You cannot install it in a normal MLX.

 

From the HW installation guide:

 

BR-MLX-10Gx24-DM interface modules can be installed only in Brocade MLXe devices running in MLX mode (NI-MLX-MR and BR-MLX-MR2-M or the equivalent 32 slot management modules).

 

Hence you need a new chassis.

Here's the link to the hw install guide HW install guide
