C7000 VC-FC, Brocade 4/24 and EVA440 Configuration and Cabling document

I have a new EVA4400 that I am planning on connecting into a C7000 via 2 Brocade 4/24 switches and 2 * FC Virtual Connect. I have multiple manuals and best practice guides but none mentions the recommended cabling of the Brocade to the VC-FC interconnect modules (which port to port).

Has anyone seen a document that has some recommended configurations?
Thanks

hi,
the rule is connecting each vc-fc module to the different fabric at least via 2 ports (for the redundancy and also for the load balancing). Subsequently the PWWN fabric zonning should be used for the c7000 host for the ability to switch on the dynamic link balancing at the vc-fc...
the pain is one part of the reality
