Am i right if i state you're lookin for the FOS compatibility between 640b and 532c.

If so then it should work but to be sure look at the release note from FOS 640b from you vendor (looks like Dell/EMC).

A HP document shows FOS640b works with 532c, but I haven't looked for any specifics.

If not perhaps you want to rephrase your question.

Hi DT,

This is perfectly supported. Check Fabric OS Compatibility section (page 19) in Fabric OS 6.4.0b Release Notes.

Hope this helps,

Thanks much for the ISL compatibility check.

Separately the goal is to maintain the 24000 as the Prmary Switch.

If the switches end up segmenting once ISL is created, will this still allow the 24000 to remain as the primary switch?  I am checking to see if the 24000 has a FCS policy defined and if security enabled..

Thx,

DT
