Dear Brocade Users,
How do I integrate a *new HP2/SLKWRM** switch into a MC data fabric. Please give me step by step instructions. Details are:
Brocade Switch Details:
Fabric OS version v6.1.0a / Make & Model is HP2/SLKWRM Role : Principal
Current Interopmode: Mc Data Fabric
64M/4700/4500 with firmware 7.01/8.01/8.01 in that order and managed through Connectrix Mgr ver 8.7.1

Interop-Mode beetwen Brocade and McDATA is not supported by this E/OSc Rel.
You must first upgrade the McDATA to E/OSc 9.6.2 or higher, see in the FabOS Release notes, is attached.
M-EOS 9.6.2 is the minimum version of firmware that
can be used to interoperate with FOS 6.1.0 or later. M-EOS 9.7 or later is recommended for optimum
fabric performance in a mixed FOS and M-EOS fabric.

which sense makes to Downgrade the Brocade from v6.1.x to v5.3.x ?
Or what is the reason you Downgrade to v5.3.x ?
