connecting switch silkworm 200e with 2x hp san switch 8/24


I try to connect this two switches without isl trunking, just cascading connection, because i don't have license for it.

When i connecting silkworm 200e to silkworm 300, the green led is flashing and on silworm300 i have :
additional port info: segmented, disabled e_port

I try change portcfgeport but it didn't helped me

On silkworm 200e i have fabric os 5.0.x on silkworm300 i have fabric 6.1.x, port status is online, e_port, AN.

I tried to set the same zone on both switches and i delete all zones on both, but in any case it didn't work :(

thank You for any advice
