Brocade 5100 and FICON EXPRESS 16S+

Hello everyone,
We have  Brocade 5100 with FOS 6.4.2a working with z13 and FICON Express 16S.
Will they work fine with z14 and FICON Express 16S+ cards?
Is the level of FOS OK?
Maybe you can suggest any Brocade papers to read about it.

 

Thanks, Marek

Hello,

 

Z14 is not supported on the 5100.

Thierry,

thanks for your answer. For that moment it's not a problem. We are preapering for new Z14 and 5100 are not only switches we have. They will by used for another purposes. Any way, I'm looking for any documents descibing requirements from Brocade point of view.
