EVA 4100 with 2 different switches

Hi I am using EVA 4100 with two cisco MDS switches.
I want to remove 1 cisco switch .
Is it possible to connect 1 cisco switch and 1 brocade switch with EVA 4100. ANy performance issues???

Hey, I doubt many people have done this.

Are you going to use multipathing?

You probably want to make sure that both switches run the same routing, i.e. port-based routing or exchange-based routing.
And have the same TOV - time out values. E_D_TOV, R_A_TOV etc. See the values on the brocade with 'configshow --pattern fabric.ops'

As long as you follow the Fabric Rules for each fabric in the San Design Guide you should have no issues.
