    Hi all, I have a similar situation, described in the link below:

    https://community.broadcom.com/fibrechannelnetworking/communities/community-home/digestviewer/viewthread?GroupId=1147&MID=693476&CommunityKey=8c20a621-3946-4e2f-a557-34d1c9c9eeb3&tab=digestviewer&ReturnUrl=%2Ffibrechannelnetworking%2Fcommunities%2Fcommunity-home%2Fdigestviewer%3Ftab%3Ddigestviewer%26CommunityKey%3D8c20a621-3946-4e2f-a557-34d1c9c9eeb3

    Do you know if there is a procedure to reset the inherited FID (no more used) on a physical switch? I have to merge with a VF with FID5 (I can't change it) and the physical switch (Brocade DCX 7.4.2d) has an old inherited FID=2.

    Any help will be very appreciated.

    Regards

    Fabio
