I am testing different architectures with a Nexus 5020 which has a module of FC ports. Anyone could tell me if the Nexus 5020 has interoperability with the FC Brocade switches as the DS 5000B or the 7500?

Software/Hardware used:
Nexus 5020, Brocade 7500, Brocade 5000B

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes both those combination are supported. At least by EMC, with specific versions of the code. Let me know what
are you connecting to on the storage end.

    Thank you, I tested the interoperability between them in the FC part. Nowadays, I am proving with the Nexus 5020 and the CNA Brocade, in the server side, to verify if they can interchange the information of FCoE. Have you any idea above that? I can reach to transmit FIP frames from the Cisco to the Brocade CNA but the CNA does not answer. However, the CNA can recognise some LLDP frames from Cisco. The next step is to test Nexus 5024 with the Qlogic that it is already supported. If someone is working in the same area or has some idea, it would be welcome!
