Interopmode issue with McDATA switch

  • 1.  Interopmode issue with McDATA switch

    Posted 07-09-2013 04:18 AM

    I have configured Brocade switch with interopmode 2 to migrate McDATA (McDATA Fabric mode)...

    I am getting E-port segmented with zone conflict message on Brocade

    LabSGP:FID128:admin> switchshow

    15  15   640f00   id N1   Online      FC  E-Port segmented,(zone conflict)


    Prior to change of interopmode I have done cfgdisable, cfgclear, cfgsave at brocade, configured IM 2 with safe zone ON.

    Brocade FOS : v6.4.3d , McDATA is on Firmware Version: 09.08.01

    please suggest...

    "cfgmcdtmode" command, can you verify if McDATA Config mode is enable or disable.

    Additional, i see in switchshow output, the segmented port is set as N1, keep in mind 8G SFP+ not support 1GB FC.

    If you have in McDATA Switch 1Gbits SFP, the you must use is 5100 a 4G SFP
