    Hello, 

    I want to connect tow brocade 6505 FC switch with a cisco mds 9148s. 

    you will find bellow the architecture:


    When I try to configure them with interopabilty mode 2 I got this error: 

    E-Port segmented,20:0b:00:3a:9c:7a:a2:41 (Eport Isolated)

    By the way, can you provide Universal Temporary Licenses for brocade to test some functionality ??
    Thank you.

    Hi
    The  recommended is to change the Cisco MDS 9148 to NPV Mode.
    NPV Mode
    A switch is in NPV mode after a user has enabled NPV and the switch has successfully rebooted. NPV mode
    applies to an entire switch. All end devices connected to a switch that is in NPV mode must log in as an N
    port to use this feature (loop-attached devices are not supported). All links from the edge switches (in NPV
    mode) to the NPV core switches are established as NP ports (not E ports), which are used for typical interswitch
    links. NPIV is used by the switches in NPV mode to log in to multiple end devices that share a link to the
    NPV core switch.
