brocade 6430

I am setting up a new Nimble Array.  We will be starting with 2 Brocade 6430 Switches.

I am looking for some expert help with how to optimize the configs on the Brocades.  Ideally, with a copy of someones 'show running-config' from a similar ICX64XX switch build.

With thanks

Jeff

Re: brocade 6430

We are running Brocade VDX 6740's, but I imagine that the basics of the port configuration are the same. You will have the trunk between the two switches with redundant links, and of course everything is running jumbo frames. Here is a sanitized config for you to look at: http://1drv.ms/1AKUZvz  Let me know if you have any questions!
