Introduce New HPE SN6000B with FOS 8.2.0 into existing Fabric with Brocade 5100s with FOS 7.0.2d

Looking for advice.

In my existing fabric I have couple of Brocade 5100 swtiches with FOS 7.0.2d and few with FOS 6.4.3h, I have bought three new HPE SN6000B and it came with 8.0.2a (which I will be upgrading to FOS 8.2.0a).

So far after going through several release notes and documents, figure out that I will not be able to introduce the new switches into the existing fabric. 

I will have to bring my exsisting fabric FOS upto 7.3.1 level and then only will be able to introduce new switches into my existing fabric.

 

What would be the best way to introduce the new switches into my existing fabric?

Please advice.

 

Thanks in advance.

Old Generation Switches supported at FOS 6.x, can only be added / ISL to a Fabric with NEW Gen6 Switch only via FCR

 

Brocade 5100 ( Gen4) is supported as well by FOS 7.3.x / 7.4.x,  and can Interoperate in a Fabric with FOS 8.x
