ISLing Issue

Hey All, I need help I am trying to trunking Brocade 4900 and Brocade 4424 but I am getting this error on the port 17.

"17 17 id N4 Online E-Port segmented,(incompatible)."

I have looked all the config and firmware in both FS. The firmware on 4424 is 5.3.0_emb1 and 4900 is 6.1.0c. I have checked the documentation for these two switches and the firmware are compatible.

This is the Brocade 4424 config

Re: ISLing Issue

I my opinion, This is not correct, and It may be that,

Are you confirmed cfg name and zone name between BR4900 to BR4424?

If you have to ISL between Brocade SAN, You have to configure, cfg name is equal and zone name is not duplicated.
