Up till now I've setup iSCSI SAN environments. I'm delving into Fibre fabrics for the first time and have acquired some old used fibre hardware to test and learn on before jumping into buying new stuff.

I have an old discontinued Brocade Silkworm 3200 - 2G Fibre.

I'm having a hard time finding any documentation on how to set it up, configure zoning, etc. So I can learn about this subject. Much less how to console in and setup the IP address, reset password, so I can web interface into it, etc. It seems like you might need a support contract to acquire this stuff - but I'm not 100% sure.

Before I jump into buying anything I want to learn about it so I can then buy the right new hardware. Can anyone help?

Google with "brocade silkworm 3200 manual" and you will see quite a few reference manuals.

Thanks ScottCha. However, the links you provided were either hardware installation, rack installation, reference manual to other manuals, etc. Finally after digging in and googling how to zone with a Brocade switch I found some very random websites that have them stored.
