I would like to connect a mainframe Zos (Ficon) to a tape drive 9840C (stk) through a brocade switch 5000 (FOS 5.3.0d)
When i connect the drive, it appears in the RNID table of the switch.
When i connect the host, the physical link is not ok and the Ficon transmiter needs a CHPID on/ CHPID off sequence to be on again, and nothing is written in the RNIDS table.
Does anybody has an example of a suitable IOCP code ?
Must i purchase a specific brocade licence (like Secure Fabric OS) ?

see attached FAQ by the Question
"Does FICON require any other licenses to work?"
