Possibility of Brocade 7800 connection to MDS 9222i for FCIP setup

    Hi Team,

     

    I would like to setup FCIP link between two DC's for migrating data , in source we have Cisco MDS 9222i switches and in destination we have 7800 switches available with ge ports. 

     

    Can you please let us know the possibility of connecting CISCO to Brocade for FCIP setup.

     

    Thanks,

    Bhanuchand

    I doubt that that could work. A 7800 is even incompatible to a 7500. Cisco's FCIP implementation is totally different than Brocade's implementations.

    Thanks for note Sir , 

     

    I red somewhere that data transfer through WAN so it doesn't matter for source and destination switches in same model.

     

    Configurations will be done as per vendor in both ends (Source switch + Destination switch). 

     

    Will you able to suugest destination Cisco models I have to buy , source is MDS9222i switches so destination also should we have MDS 9222i switches.

     

    Thanks,

    Bhanu

    You should check with your OEM SE. The MDS guides provide an interop list which shows what will work with which equipment and which setting you need.
