Is there any experience using Brocade for FICON Connectivity?. I have some issue on my customer when they need to configure
remote tape using SW4100. The Channel MF cannot bring to Online. The configuration like this below :
CHPID MF Z10 ---- SW4100 ---- DWDM ----- SW4100 ----- ATL
For Information i have configure Fabric Binding/Cascade FICON, Zoning By port, Install License FICON CUP for Both SW4100.
Is there any configuration that i must add to this issue??

Refer Qualification Letter, - is attached - Brocade 4100 is not Qualified with FOS 6.4.0c for FICON.
By IBM was in the past a Completed List for Approved and Certified Switch and FOS for FICON, unfortunately I cannot find this anymore, perhaps IBM have move the Page to another place
