expand fabric

    I have limited knowledge and experience of fibre switches.

    we have a pair of 200E switches, and few ports left avaialble. We want to expand the fabric, and have recently purchased a pair of Brocade 300 Switches.


    My question is, what do I need to do to add the 300 switches into the fabric?


    The 200E switches are running Fabric OS v5.2.0a the 300 switches were purchased in march, and have not yet been configured.

    The 200E switches are running production workload, so I can't wipe any config, and need to have minimal distruption to service.


    Many thanks for any assistance.
