@Ravikanth

 

I've moved the Thread in correct forum.

 

about you question, CP = Control Processor, one work active one standby, are the management blade that contain FOS and all the config.

 

For the Core Blade, both work active, there is nothing to configure trough the CP, excepted ICL License is installed.

Thank you so much Antonio for addressing this.

 

Need one help.

 

I need to train new folks in my team on SAN Environment and few Switch Models.They are new to SAN and I need to teach then from scratch like what is SAN, how Data Transfer works in SAN,how the connectivity takes place, how the Brocade Generations evolved.

 

Could you please hlep me if you have any good document or PPT.

Hello rabijja1@in.ibm.com

 

I would personally recommend using the "Learning Portal" within the My Brocade site to access the learning content for the Brocade SAN product line. Depending on your company relationship with Brocade, you maybe able to access these self pace courses for free or for a fee.
