Re: The new 5000 switch

You don't actually need the new 5000 switch - the current version of the Brocade firmware supports the McData native interop mode which should allow you to connect any current Brocade switch to your fabric. I have not tested - we did a forklift upgrade from our McData-based SAN to Brocade-based last summer. .../Ed
