Brocade 5100 and Silkworm 24000 in the same Fabric?

Hello,

Beginning next year, we will change our SAN infrastructure. For this, we need to integrate 2 news Brocade 5100 in a Fabric made of 2 Silkworm 24000. Is it possible? Do we have to pay special attention (Firmware, licences, ....)?

Thanks for all....

A Fabric with 5100 and 24000 is Supported and Certified

you need a E_Port License = Fabric License in order to Build a Fabric

Hi,

please keep an eye on discards in this configuration if 8 Gbit devices needs access to 1 or 2 Gbit devices on the 24000.

Silkworm 24000 v5.3.2 --> Silkworm 5100 6.3.x / 6.4.x
