I have IBM_2109_M48 on Fabric version v5.2.0a and two SilkWorm 200E switches on version v5.2.0b.
I need to take the SilkWorm switches to the location of the IBM switch and connect them together.
I want to find out the compactibility of these switches.
Do I need a firmware upgrade on anyone for them to connect to each other.
I will really apprciate a help as I am new on SAN switches.
v5.2.0a and v5.2.0b should work fine. However Brocade always recommends running the latest/greatest code to be loaded on the switches......the latest Brocade firmware code supported on both 48000 and 200E is v6.2.2f.
If you want details about compatibility a good place to look in is the release notes of 5.2.0b (the highest version).
