what is the configuration on the HP switches?  if it's all vlan 1 with no layer 3, then yes.

brocades switches are very easy to configure.
pchettriIT DirectorAuthor Commented:
both the new and old switches are layer 3 and there are two vlans one for data and one for voice

yes.. Is there a support or information link? IS there a way to copy configuration or it needs to be setup manually as they are different vendor and use different OS
Jan SpringerCommented:
it's different.

you need to document on the HP
 
Port #
   switched
      untagged
        vlan # to tag traffic
      tagged
        trunk interface
   routed
      ip address/netmask

so I need to pull the report using  -
Port #
   switched
      untagged
        vlan # to tag traffic
      tagged
        trunk interface
   routed
      ip address/netmask

and apply the same settings in Brocate
Jan SpringerCommented:
yes.  the difference with the brocade is that you place the interface in the vlan (identifying it as tagged or untagged, you can have a mix) instead of putting the vlan on the interface.

i like the brocades, if you need help, holler.
