IS 8/20Q switch is compatible with 8/24?

Hi,

we have a fabric with 8/24 Core Switch and 4/16 edge switch.

We received a 8/20q from an aquisition and i want to to know if i can do an ISL beetween the 8/20q FC switch and the 8/24 FC Switch to join it to the existing fabric or it's not compatible.

There is no zoning in the 8/20q.


Thanks

Hi,

Too many infrastructure variables (F/OS, devices attached, etc...) unknown from the limited information you provided.

Check the tables in here and read the F/OS release notes to be sure:

The 8/20q Fibre Channel Switch will also interoperate with HP StorageWorks B-series fabrics using Transparent Routing (TR) technology. For details and supported firmware versions, refer to the SAN Design Guide:
