blade brocade 4/12 san switch combinination with brocade 3800

Hi,

We update our blade 4/12 sanswitch to firmware 6.2.2. Because a migration we need to use old brocade 3800 2gb in the fabric.

Is the 4/12 san switch compatible to use it in a fabric with brocade 3800??

AE370A HP Brocade 4/12 firm.rev. 6.2.2
Brocade 3800 firm.rev.3.2.1c

Work this? Can the Ae370A 4/12 handle the 2gbit at this firm level?

See forward for u answers:)

Thx guys

According hp's guide, 3.2.1c is supported (you can find it here: http://h20272.www2.hp.com/utility/document.aspx?docurl=Shared%20Documents/dg/san_design/SDG_FullBook_Feb10_AA-RWPYF-TE_2010_02_13.pdf ) so, this switch can co-exist with the newer ones.

As for AE370A, yes, its transceivers are auto-sensitive.
