License needed to activate AG Mode on 6547 Switch

  • 1.  License needed to activate AG Mode on 6547 Switch

    Posted 11-05-2015 10:08 AM

    I am trying to connect a Brocade switch 6547 to a Cisco MDS 9710. Rather than use interop mode on the MDS, I was thinking about using Access Gateway mode on the Brocade.

     

    Are there any guides that explain the configuration on both the Brocade and MDS switch? All POD licenses must be installes on the brocade switch prior activate agmode?

     

    Thanks in advance!

     

    Regards,

    AFAIK, like the Dell M6505, the same for 6547 is not mandatory to have all POD licensed in order to set the Blade in AG Mode.

     

    I believe the IBM 6547 is the same switch as the M6505 by Dell.

     

    BTW, Interop-Mode is on Brocade not longer supported, but you shold be able to connect the Brocade in AG Mode to the Cisco.
