HP Brocade FC Switch and QLogic 5602 FC Switch

I have an HP Blade with the HP Brocade FC Switch, I cannot get this switch to see my Qlogic 5602  or anything plugged into the Qlogic switch.

Any help would be great,

Thank you.

Hi cdefortuna

1.Login into the CLI and type "switchshow"

2. See if you can see the HBA's WWN

3. If you can't then check your physical cabling & SFP's.

Good luck

I ran that command and the 2 ports connected to me Qlogic switch show

17  17   id    N4   In_Sync
18  18   id    N4   In_Sync

they are blinking yellow on the Brocade and don't light up on the Qlogic,

Re: HP Brocade FC Switch and QLogic 5602 FC Switch

which Fabric OS Rel. is loaded in the Brocade and which Firmware is Loaded in QLogic ?

In order to Interoperate Brocade to QLogic the ISL Port in QLogic must be set as G_Port, and in a Brocade switch must be set as E_Port.

Thank you, that did the trick, I also had the domains set with the same number and found that they needed to be different.
