Simple EFCM Questions

Hi,

I have a couple of simple EFCM questions, you might be able to answer:

1) What is the latest version available for EFCM?

2) Can I use EFCM to manage an all Brocade Switches shop (48000/4900 series)?

3) Will the new EFCM tool forthcoming (Called DCFM (Data Center Fabric Manager)), be available to EFCM customers with Maintenance/Support contracts?

Thank you for any light you might be able to shed on my questions

With kind regards,

Fred
