Cisco MDS 8 Gb 12-port Fabric Switch with Brocade 804 8Gb FC HBA

Will this HBA work with this interconnect?

We get no link on the internal ports of dual switches in bays 3 & 4 of c3000 with HBAs in any server bay.

OnBoard Administrator shows valid port mappings on both server bays and interconnect bays but switch ports show no link as does Brocade BIOS initialization.

The quickspecs for this HBA claims support for all 3rd party switches.

For anyone interested, HP Support has confirmed that while these should work together, they have experienced issues and easiest solution is to replace the HBAs with known working models; namely, 456972-B21 Emulex LPe1205 8Gb Fiber
