FCR configuration in 5100 switch

Hi All,

I have one Brocade 5100 SAN switch (FOS 6.2.) with  4 logical  switches configured as below .Each switch contains   individual zones

1.Default Switch FID 128

2.Base switch FID 55

3.Logical  Switch 3 -FID 60

4.Logical  Switch 4 -FID 65


I would like to interconnect logical switch 3 and 4 with FC route .Is it possible to create route?

Please share the  step by step procedure


Thanks in advance

theoretically and in the praxis the answer is yes.


however you need IR = Intergrated Routing License or Routing capable Switch i.e. 7500 or 7800.

We do have routing licenses ,and need  procedure to  create the integrated routing as well as noraml   FCR.

I failed to  find out step by step procedure  from the FOS admin docs  to create FCR or integrated routing
