    I'm upgrading an IBM mainframe environment currently running through brocade 5300 FOS 7.2.1 to 6510 FOS 8.0.2d, the switch is detecting a storage port and mainframe port and bringing in WWN's but the devices are not coming online on the mainframe? Cause I be missing some setting? HELP appreciated, thanks.

    Have you run through all of the FICON setup on the 6510? BNA works best for some parts.

    Is the Domain ID set properly? (Hex to Dec and back)

    (Does the 6510 support FICON? I would have to go look...)

    v8.0.2d is no FICON Qualified.

     

    for that main reason before you continued to investigated the issue, you should Upgrade or Downgrade to a FICON Qualified FOS Release, one of the follow:

     

    v8.0.2b2

     

    or

     

    v8.1.0c

     

    or

     

    v81.2a
