We have a lot of Dell and HP blade chassis with Brocade FC connectivity set as access gateways into Cisco MDS directors. Is it possible to manage the access gateways in BNA/CMCNE without a Brocade director as a seed switch?
from BNA User Guide:
NOTESwitches running in Access Gateway mode cannot be used as the seed switch.
you need a Switch - no matter if this is a Director or PizzaBox - as seed Switch in order to manage other Switches in the fabric set in AG Mode.
Yeah, I figured but it was worth throwing it out to the community. Thanks for the confirmation!
