Extending Cisco MDS fabric with Brocade SAN switches

Hi ,

Currently in my both DC's , we are lacking capacity on Cisco MDS 9148 production Switches but we got new Brocade switches to extend the capacity of SAN switches - which means we want to connect more physical servers to brocade switches or extend existing Cisco MDS fabrics.

 

my queries are :

  1. How do i create a ISL between existing Cisco MDS and Brocade switches? (for e.g Port channel between both switches?)
  2. I understood from documentation that i need to put new brocade switches in AG mode and enable npiv on Cisco switches? Is this enough configuration to connect both switches?
  3. Is there any documentation available to extend Cisco MDS fabric with brocade switches?
  4. What is best practice of this scenario?

Please share your thoughts.

thanks

ak
