I hope someone can help, I have searched around but have not got very close to an answer; even after looking at the V6.4.0c release notes.
We have an existing setup running two IBM SAN 32 switches (running V6.1.0c of the FabricOS) and these talk to two Brocade 4/12 SAN Switch for HP C-Class. The configuration is one IBM is the master of one HP.
We are about to replace the IBM switches with a IBM SAN 40B-4, running V6.4.0c.
Does anyone know if v6.4.0c works with v6.1.0c? Or would I need to upgrade the HP Switches?
I think I can go to V6.2.2f on the HP's.
Any assistance, or pointing me in the correct direction, would be great.
Thanks in advance.

Although the connectivity will work between those switchs with those releases, I do recommend you to upgrade Brocade 4/12 SAN Switch for HP C-Class to 6.2.2f (I reckon that 6.1.0c is EOSL)
On the other hand, I am not sure if IBM SAN 40B-4 corresponds to Brocade 5100... If so, I recommend you to upgrade it to 6.4.2a or above, so that you get rid of 6.4.0c.
