Hi all ,
my customer have four FC switches .
two are brocades one intégrated into an IBM bladeCenter E Chassis .
two are IBM branded brocade switches ( 2005-16B )
i have installed a full fabric licence so i can connect all of them the each other .meanwhile i noticed that the performances of the fabric are really disatriouse !! like when i start using the LUNS ( file copy ..) all the SAN freezes and the servers are hanging .
when i brok the fabric and re use the switch séparatly everything went normal and the performances are in place again.
all the zoning are corect , and all the differents parametres i checked more than once are as they should be . the only thing is that the fcos on the chassis switches are 6.3.1B , and the fcos in the IBM switches are 5.3.1.
my custormer dosent want to risque a major update to switches since theres a big risque of activity interrupt !!! i need to know so i can convince him , if the two FCOS version are radically incompatible !
are there any compatibility matrix i can use ?
thanks for help
