Help brocade 4424 - Configure SAN Access Gateway Mode

I have a brocade 4424 installed on the blade dell, I have a storage, the switch is in Access Gateway Mode, I connected the GBig in the storage and the FC cables in switch 4424, but I do not get a link, how to configure the switch? I've read a lot, but I do not have much experience with these connections and switch. Tanks.

Re: Help brocade 4424 - Configure SAN Access Gateway Mode
