    Hi support

    I have two switch, GS6510 running FOS 8.x and DELL EMC MXG610S running FOS 7.x

    Can they be trunking in one fabric? How to trunking between them in one fabric?

    Thanks.

    Between supported version of FOS, yes. Keep in mind that FOS 7.x is code is getting pretty old. The only supported FOS 7.x version is 7.4.2d.

    My standard advice is to have all switches at the same level of code or no more than one revision apart (during migrations). This is not only how most of the testing is done but in the event you need to open a support case, it removes a few variables.

    The latest recommended target path code is FOS v8.2.1c
