I have two redundant heterogeneous SAN fabrics that each consist of two fabric mode Brocade switches, multiple embedded Brocade edge switches in Access Gateway mode, and multiple embedded Cisco MDS 9124 switches running in NPV mode. I would like to add these MDS switches to BNA if possible. Currently the PWWN's of their uplink ports show up, and I have made them initiators, but I'm hoping that their is some way to add them in as FC switches. Is this possible?

I did not find any info related to MDS switchs support in BNA release notes (as per it, only Brocade devices can be discovered).
On the other hand, if you look into BNA User guide you can import a MDS MIB into BNA so that traps are processed by the application.

I had looked into that, but the Cisco MIB list was pretty daunting. I was hoping for a way to manually configure the MDS switches as NPV devices in each fabric, not just to receive and process traps.
