Cisco MDS9509 and IBM Brocade4Gb Blade Switch

I have a customer with a SAN consisting of two switches cisco mds9509 and   some edge IBM blade Qlogic Switch . He has acquired further two switches IBM blade Brocade4Gb. He add one of the switches in the fabric as iteroperability mode 3 (McDATA Open Fabric. and  add the blades in the Zoning of mds9509. The active zone set is propagated to all Qlogic switches  but not in brocade4Gb. The activezones in the brocade result  the same name as the cisco but it is  empty: there are no alias, no zoning and no zoneconfig . Could you help me..Attached Cisco Showtech e Brocade showswitch. The ILS is from Brocade port15 and Cisco 4/2
