We have 2 brocade san switch already configured.

I need to add a 3rd brocade san switch to the existing fabric, but I don't have the procedure.

I also, want to know the default ip adress and login credential of a brocade san switch?

Change the domain ID so it is different to the current two and connect it, with three switches a ring topology makes most sense. Are you using ISL trunking between the other two switches? ISL traffic can be reduced by having storage and servers that use it on the same switch but sometimes that's not possible.

default IP address is 10.77.77.77 username = admin and password = password.
