Brocade FOS / M-EOS Compatibility issues

We currently have M-eos 9.1.1 firmware on our fabric which consists of McData 4700's. We also have Brocade for IBM Bladecenter switches in AG mode that are at firmware FOS v5.3.2a.  I upgraded a Brocade to 6.1.1 and 2 ports on the switch  gave an error " Login Failed, duplicate AL_PA"  Once I removed and recreated the AG settings then all was OK.

Is anyone aware if the following versions are compatiblite - m-eos 9.1.1 (fabric Mcdata mode) and Brocade v6.1.1a. (Access gateway mode) and if so is it best to upgrade the Fabric to M-eos 9.9.x and then upgrade the Brocades to FOS v6.1.1

If anyone can point me to a m-eos / Brocade FOS firmware compatibility matrix that would help

--->>> We currently have M-eos 9.1.1 firmware on our fabric which consists of McData 4700's.

It is highly recommended that M-EOS products operate with the most recent version of M-EOS

released and supported for interoperability. M-EOS 9.8.0 is the minimum version of firmware that

is qualified to interoperate with FOS 6.1.1 or later.
