That's a pity, because AG/NPIV is the most viable scenario. But AFAIK there is another option - you can configure Brocade-compatible port(s) from the Cisco side. I'm not expert in Cisco, so I can't tell you how this should be done. If my memory doesn't cheat me, you will configure the Cisco ports in a VSAN with special Brocade mode. Strange that IBM didn't tell you about it. But maybe I'm wrong and this is not supported anymore?
