rob,

--- Is this possible and how to configure both switches into one fabric.

Yes, you can Build a Fabric with Brocade and McDATA.

you must first make sure, both Switch have a compatible OS.

what is the exact release loaded in 3900 and 4400 ?

you must change/set correct the Interopmode and Domain ID, in the Brocade and in the McDATA switch.

Attached is a PDF to Merge a Fabric McDATA to Brocade with Domain ID details.

Re: Connecting SW3900 and McData 4400

Hi Antonio,

About the Brodade switches they are at v5.3.0c but I was not able to gain information about the MCdata 4400's yet.

Is there a way to connect by a serial line to these 4400's? or even set these switches to default so I can connect those via telnet to the default ip address?

Thanks in advanced.

Rob

attached the Installation and Sevice manuals.

Note, if you have lost the password the switch must be reset, and all License will be lost !

by Default the usename is

"Administrator"

and password is

"password"
