McData ES-4700 (Sphereon) ISL maximums

I have an ISL between a mcdata 4700 and brocade 300.  All the zoning is done on the McData's.  I just added a new blade server to the fabric on the Brocade side and I can see the WWN for the server in the name server in the Brocade (subordinate), but I dont see the WWN on the McData switch (principal).

Is there a limit to the number of devices and/or npiv connections going across an ISL?

I have 35 total devices on the brocade switch (6 physical and 29 npiv) coming across the ISL #1

22 nodes directly connected to this principal McData swtich

5 physical devices connected across another ISL to a 2nd Dell EMC Brocade 300

Total of 62 nodes managed/zoned on this McData ES 4700
