Re: port error when link 4700 and 4100

repeating Link Failures is usually an indication of faulty cable or SFP module.

However, because you're connecting legacy McDATA switch (M4700) to classic Brocade switch (Silkworm 4100), you might need to verify interoperability settings also. Please refer to Chapter 14, Interoperability for Merged SANs in Fabric OS Administrator's Guide (53-1001763-01).
