Brocade 48000 Director adding 4gb FC 32 Port Blades

I have a Brocade 48000 director with 3 4gb 32 port blades installed.  No other slots in use.

 

I would like to add 2 more blades ( 32 port 4gb FC ) to the director.

 

Is there a white paper or known procedure for upgrading the Brocade 48000?

 

Known Factors:

1. Requires the maximum of 4 power supplies

2. Must be placed in slots 7 and 8.

 

Thank You,

Hi

 

HP re-badge the Brocade 4800 as a HP 4/256 Director.  The manuals and user guides for this switch can be found here

There a number of install guides under the Setup and Install section

 

Thanks
