Generally speaking, ISL between B200 and B5100 is supported, but requires a number of setting to match between the switches, check the respective FOS Admin Guide. For FOS version compatibility, check your current B5100 FOS release notes.

Thanks for reply but what others points we should check for this ISL. I checked release notes of FOS 7.2.1a and found zoning has limitation for B200 switch in fabric.

-->>>....and found zoning has limitation for B200 switch in fabric

 

in you case by the 200E the note in RN is related to FOS Release lower as 6.2.2d

 

FOS 6.2.2g is the latest supported Release for the Brocade 200E
