I have 2 Brocade B300 connected with optical Fiber OM2 50/125 LC/LC ( so the port is an E_port).
I try to change this fiber because it's too short.
I have try one OM3 fiber, result : no connection
I have try an other OM2 fiber longer : no connection
But if i reuse the old fiber : it s ok !
I don't understand why ....
Do you have an idea ?

That is a strange problem. On the surface it would seem the new cables are faulty. As a test, I would try the OM3 cable again
and check the physical layer and port log:
a) disable the ISL ports at each end
b) insert the OM3 cable
c) clear the fc and asic counters: statsclear;slotstatsclear
d) enable the ISL ports
e) check the port error counters: porterrshow, portstatsshow
f) check the portlog file: portlogdump -i <portnumber>
Also check the cable sheathing info to confirm the fc cable is what you believe it is.
