    Hi all,

    I just want to clarify one thing regarding the auto-sensing feature of Brocade 6510 SAN switch. In the specifications, it has mentioned that "auto-sensing of 2, 4, 8, and 16 Gbps port speeds"

    I want to know whether Brocade 6510 SAN switch can auto negotiate to 2Gbps speed / define port speed to 2Gbps, provided that SAN switch has 16Gbps capable SFPs plugged in.

    Thank you in advanced.

    16Gb Plattforms can negotiated at 2G, however you have to replace the 16G SFP with a 8G SFP.

    16G SFP Negotiated at 16/8/4, 8G SFP can Negotiated at 8/42
