    Hello,

     

    I have a Brocade 300 SAN switch.It has three auto negotiation modes,auto-sensing mode(hardware),auto-sensing mode(hardware) with enhanced retries and auto-sensing mode (software) with enhanced retries.

    What's the difference between them?

     

    thanks

    That is such a good question! I have been looking for info about it but never found anything... :robotfrustrated:

    I hope that someone in the community could help out.
