I have Dell Brocade SW3014 running Fabric OS 4.4.1.a and I am having issues connecting it to my McData DS-24M2 switch. I am getting a warning on the port 13 FC-SW OS version not compatible. I have the McData switch using the McData Fabic OS and if I switch it over to Open Fabic the port does not connect at all and goes into segmented. I do have a full fabric license on the SW3014.

First, FOS 4.4.1a is around 5 Years old.
Second, to conect McData DS-24M2 switch with brocade, you need on Both Switch a compatible FabOS and FW.
And finaly, Domain ID must be set correct on both Switches, and Interop-Mode must be changed.

Yes I know old OS that I why I am thinking this is the last issue.
Domain IDs are unique and both are set in inter-op mode 1.
I am waiting for my vendor to get me an updated OS version.

I posted this one because I wanted to make sure I was clear on what the issue is and second this was before I contacted the vendor. I like to hear from real world techs not just ones reading a script!!! Know what I mean?

In order of upgrade the Blade Switch 3014, you need to Upgrade in more Step until the latest Supported rel.
Same by the McDATA, you need a Compatible and supported FW Rel.

what are the current Domain ID n both Switches ?
Please Note, Domain ID must be correct set in McDATA Hex mode, and Brocade switche's must have the correct Domain ID
