Connectivity rules HP16b SAN and Brocade 4424

Have looked at the SAN Conenctivity Guide (Mar '09) and cannot find an equivalency for the Brocade 4424 Blade Enclosure SAN Switch and the hp16b SAN. Is there anywhere where the equivalent models are listed, and where these switches's firwmare is present?

I already tried the "Brocade - HP" partnership link and these switches were not listed. Canm I just connect them up and hope, or install VEX ports?

Share and Enjoy! Ian Dennison

Re: Connectivity rules HP16b SAN and Brocade 4424

I think the HP16B is the same model as the Compaq SANswitch 2/16 or the Brocade SilkWorm 3800 running the old VXworks based 3.* firmware.

Check what firmware is running on the 4424 and whether it is (still) compatible with the 3.x software. I don't think the 16B can do VEX_ports.
