Not sure why the virtual fabrics is not supported on our switch (brocade 300 series). I've checked the switch admin guide, but no details regarding this.
Inorder to support the virtual fabrics on the swtich , what should be done. can you please let know. thanks.

Virtual Fabric is supported only of VF Capable Switches.
Brocade 300 is not VF Capable.
what brocade switches are capable of VF ? is it VDX series?
I thought Brocade 300 is VF capable, as in Brocade Nework Advisor 12.3 SAN User manual it's mentioned -
"Virtual Fabrics requires that you have at least one Virtual Fabrics-enabled physical chassis running
Fabric OS 6.2.0 or later in your SAN."
My switch is running Fabric OS 7.2.
--->>>Virtual Fabrics requires that you have at least one Virtual Fabrics-enabled physical chassis...
that meanig for Virtual Fabric capable Switches.
--->>>....running Fabric OS 6.2.0 or later in your SAN
VF was introduced by FOS 6.2.0
VF capable Switeches are i.e. Brocade 6510, 6520, DCX Class Directors
Brocade 300 have no VF Support, same i.e. ( Brocade 8000 - this is end of life )
