FC port-channels between UCS FI 6248 and Brocade 300

Dear all,

I've planned to deploy FC Port-Channels between UCS FI 6248 and SAN Switch Brocade 300 with 04 uplinks. I've found some threads said: Brocade 300 in native switch mode cannot connect to FI with FC port channels, but i cannot find any document said about this problem.

Would you help me explain this questions?

Thanks a lots

Native connectivity between UCS and a Brocade FC switch is not supported.  You will need to use NPIV (brocade) NPV (Cisco) to connect the two.

Thanks Mike, but your mean is Brocade must be on access gateway mode or enable npiv port uplink in native switch mode?
