Re: SAN switch Migration (Brocade)

What firmware are all of the switches running?

How is your zoning set up? (ARe ports being used? or WWPN's?)

You can likely just ISL one new switch in each fabric and slowly move stuff over to it.

You'll have to check a few things like Domain ID, your zoning, etc... and make appropriate adjustments.

Re: SAN switch Migration (Brocade)

Are your existing switches all Brocade?

If not, you'll need to do some other things prior to adding your new switches.

What version of the FOS are you using?
