AFAIK, it depending of type of license on PV side.

 

for that reason, you should post such question on Vendor community

Hello,

 

For your information, if you are referring to a brocade 5300 please be aware that this particular switch will go End of Support in August of this year.

Please refer to https://docs.broadcom.com/docs/12379922 for a downloadable Excel file with the full list of End of Sales/End of Support dates of our products.

Hello Corinne,

 

I dont think that this is correct answer to this question. Situation that switch will be not in support doesnt mean that its not usable anymore. I saw couple of switches under support of 3rd party after EOL/EOS.

Re: Regarding to 530 brocade

Hello Shafei,

 

try to ask EMC directly.

 

In datasheet in array i've found

The FC can connect at either or 8 Gbps and 16 Gbps, however 16 Gbps is recommended
NOTE: Only 16 Gbps adapters are supported. See Supported Fibre Channel host bus adapters .

So i guess there is possibility to connect it to 8Gb but you will not get support for that infra.
