How do I uplink a Brocade 4424 to a McData 4400?
Posted on 2009-02-17
I need some help in linking up two Brocade 4424 to two McData Sphereon 4400. The Brocade 4424s are blade modules in a new Dell PowerEdge M1000e. The McData 4400s are stand alone, and already have two McData 4426 linked to them. The McData 4400 has firmware 09.07.02.1. The McData 4416 has firmware 22.214.171.124.0. The Brocade 4424 has firmware 5.3.0_emb.
What do I need to do to prepare the McData 4400? Is there anything I need to do on the McData 4416? How do I make backups of all the configurations on all four McData switches? What do I need to do on the Brocade 4424 to get it to add to the existing Fabric in the McData 4400?
