Can someone please confirm, that the following MDS interop. information applies to UCS FI in NPV, as well as FC switch mode ! or is it only for switch mode ?


Hardware and Software Interoperability Matrix


Switch Interoperability Matrix

Table 10 lists the switch models that are supported with this version of the Unified Computing System.


Cisco MDS:                 6.2.1,    4.2.1b              1, 2, 9, 15


1 Code levels greater than or equal to these listed versions are deemed by Cisco to be interoperable


2 The storage vendor’s interoperability matrix should be consulted for switch software revisions that are

supported with their arrays


9 Specific switch features must be supported on all switches used, please consult release notes for each

switch product to determine support for the desired feature


15 Certain Cisco Fabric Interconnects of the 6200 series have an OUI which will prevent FC port channels

from connecting. This issue is outlined in CSCty04686 and can be mitigated by having your upstream

Nexus 5000 code at a minimum version 6.0(2)N1(2), or MDS as minimum version 5.2(6)N1(4).
