Re: Interop Mode

I haven't worked on a McData switch for about 18 months and that was before the Brocade purchase so things may have changed since then. Double-check my statements before doing anything!You will need to plan this switch carefully since a fabric will go offline while you make this change.

Kayman,FOS 6.x support McDATA Native Mode, so you must only configured the correct Interop-Mode 2 or 3 by the HP Blade Switches.

Re: Interop Mode

Thanks to Ed and TechHelp24. I didn't figure it would be a quick fix. I'll probably end up going with the Open Fabric 1.0 as opposed to the firmware upgrade since my company is quite conservative in their approach to upgrades, especially x.0.0 versions.

Re: Interop Mode

Kayman,Change the Interop-Mode in the Current McDATA SAN, caused interruption and you must Probable re-config you SAN.
