I preparing to replace two HP pro curve switches with Brocade switches. I have sonicwall firewall. Is there any ways copy configuration of switch on firewall and transfer it over to new switches or it will automatically start routing to correct interfaces and mac after physical switch change?

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.

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

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

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.
