Re: Fabric addressing


As far as my knowledge is concerned, Brocade fabric addressing is done by 24-bit port addressing..which is provided to the node port

during FLOGI process..but I guess fabric addressing is switch vendor specific..hence CISCO fabric switch will be having some different

addressing scheme..

Could someone help me how CISCO fabric addressing happens?

I would appreciate quick response.
