I've to connect a new switch, possibly a Brocade 300, to a core Brocade 5000 with fw 5.3 working in interop-mode with an old McData 4500.
If I rememember the new firmware v6 doesn't support interop mode anymore. Is it rigth?
Any other solution?

Initial Release by the Brocade 300 is 6.1.0 and this is compatible with the 5000 with FOS 5.2.1 and higher.
you need to check which EOS Rel. is installed in the 4500.
For exact details about FOS and Firmware Compatibility, please refer the Release Notes.
--->>> If I rememember the new firmware v6 doesn't support interop mode anymore. Is it rigth?
This statement is incorrect, 6.x Support Interopmode.

where is possible to find the initial release v6.1.0 for the brocade 300.
My switch is HP branded and the first release available is v6.1.0f wich only works in interopmode McData fabric and not in OpenFabric.

Hello i am trying to downgrade a brocade 300 switch from Fabric OS: v7.4.1c to Fabric OS: v6.1.1b, is this possible?
Also i am wondering where i can download Fabric OS: v6.1.1b from the brocade site if the downgrade is possible.

FOS 6.2.0 is the lowest release allowed by Brocade. All prev versions have been withdrawn. The 300 is one of the supported switches in that release. It can be downloaded from my.brocade.com click on 'Downloads', then select 'All Operating Systems' from the Product Downloads chooser. Select Fabric Operating System (FOS) 6.x in the list, and scroll down to FOS 6.2 GA, and click on that. The versions and documentation will be shown below. Click on the version you want to download, and answer the NDA questions, then the file will be downloaded to your system.
Note that to go from 7.4.1c back to 6.2.x, you have a lot of work ahead of you. There are specific processes for downgrading regarding the MAPS facility. Please read the release notes carefully for FOS 7.2.x and pay attention to the MAPS settings.
Best of luck.
