HP MSL5052 SDLT library question

HP MSL5052 SDLT library question

I have 3 HP MSL5052 SDLT libraries with fiber channel cards. I'm trying to connect them to a Brocade 2800 switch with no luck, solid yellow lights on the switch and no lights on the library cards. The libraries have the newer 2GB fiber cards, the switch has the older 1GB GBIC ports. I had fiber cables made with the different adapters to allow connection. I have not been able to find anything that says this configuration will or will not work. Any information, tips or work-arounds would be greatly appreciated.

Have you checked the settings for the Router FC port. Log in to the router with a web browser and check that Performance is set to 1GB and Port mode to Auto_detect.
