we have two brocade 8/24 having domain id 11 and 12, and have one MSA-1000 containing two controllers, each have 2/8 brocade switch. i am connecting one of the brocade 8/24 to MSA-1000 (2/8). but its not visiable to both side.
Some time it displays as Segmented but not in fabric. here is some output of 8/24 switch. Port 5 is connected to 2/8
zoning: ON (ConfigZone)

Have you installed the Fabric License on each switch?
Did you if your firmware levels are supported in one fabric?
When is display segmented what's the reason given?
BTW segmented means the switch is unable to join the fabric, thus its not visible.
Are the fabric parameters of the MSA2/8 and B300 equal (like R_A_TOV etc)
Do both the MSA2/8 and B300 switches have an active configuration?
If so, did you consider the merging of fabric guidelines?

This Switch not longer Support Zoning Config with newer product like the 8/24
