I am have a issue when i try to create a FC fabric between two brocade san switches. One of the is 200E with firmware 6.2.2f while the other one is 300E with firmware 6.4.2a (i think it is 300E - type 002496 - 24E).
By the way, coul anyone tell me where i could fine the firmware 6.4.3 for a 300E? Thank you.
I have disconnected all hosts from thow 2 san switches. The only cable is the one connecting the two san switches.
The 200E san switch was member of another fabric. So first i have disconnected it from that fabric and i have tried to use this procedure to reset it to factory defaults.
I do not know if it is the proper way to do it, but this is how i did it. So now 200E has not configuration on it. I have powered off the 200E, connected the cable from 200E to 300E and powered on the 200E san switch. I was expecting it to receive the configuration from 300E but it did not hapen. The ports were showing E ports, but nothing happened. I have tried to use Network Advisor to connect them, but it did not went so well. All ports show U ports now. Including the one connecting the two switches. More than that, the ports used to connect the two switches are disabled now, and cannot enable them. I can, but they switch to disabled again.
I hope that someone could guide me to create the fabric between the 2 san switches. I would appreciate that.
Thank you so much in advanced.

please post the output of errdump, fabriclog --show and switchshow, so that we can try to figure out what's goin on.
Ps: in order to download the FOS code you should take a look at the Downloads section in my.brocade.com. I suppose that depending on the status of the maintenance contract you will be able to download the code. On the other hand, if those switchs were purchased via a third-vendor such as HP or IBM, in there websites, you should be able to get the code as well.
