Replacing some McData switches with Brocade...


Since we are expieriencing some issues we decided to remove the McData 4500 and 4700 switches from our fabric.

We have an existing fabric in McData Open Fabric mode since there are already 200E and 300 Brocade switches present.

What would be the procedure to:

1) replace the McData switches with other Brocade 300 switches?

2) Change the interop mode when all McData switches are replaced to the brocade native mode?

Thanks on advance,
