Migrate M6140 config to Brocade SAN384B

We would like to upload an older McData 6140 Director config to a new Brocade (2499-192) SAN384B switch in order to avert a complete recreation of nicknames, zones and zone sets.  We are managing the McData with EFCM v9.7.3 and the Brocade with DCFM v10.3.2.

Is this possible?

Since we were not planning on introducing the new FOS switch into the fabric, I was hoping the EOS config could be uploaded to the newer model DCX without much modification.  We will consider using this procedure.  Thank you for your reply!

You cannot upload or viceversa download EOS Config in FOS Based Switches or FOS Config in EOS Based Switches, due different OS System beetwen both Platforms.
