Firmware compatibility

I have two switches in my fabric; one with v6.1.1a the other is v5.0.1b. I want to know if I can add a third with v3.2.1c as a DR site over long wave fiber. Thanks for your help...

Re: Firmware compatibility

Refer the Release Notes FOS 5.x and 6.1.x for compatibility beetwen 3, 5, and 6 FabOS Release.

already in advance here the answer.


All zoning and fabric operations performed in a fabric with products running older versions of FOS

should be done via interfaces to products running the latest version of FOS. This is particularly

important for Brocade 3XXX series switches that do not support zoning configuration for newer
