Connect Brocade switch in AG mode to Cisco MDS 9706

Hello,

 

We are in a situation where we need to connect Brocade switches running in AG mode to existing Cisco MDS 9706 Fabric.

 

The VSAN we intend to connect the Brocade switch is already in production and does not have interop mode enabled. Is enabling interop mode on VSAN disruptive to that VSAN or whole switch?

Also, which intermode to choose for Brocade in AG mode as EDGE?

Hi,

Cisco interop mode is not needed if the Brocade switch is in AG mode.

Just enable feature npiv, which is non-disruptive, on the Cisco switch.
