Re: Brocade 300B FC Switch

Are both switches in use? If not, easiest way is to clear out config on one and then just connect it to the other one.

All you need is a normal fc cable and two sfps.
If the port is set to auto - it should merge.

There are lots things that are checked when a switch is trying to join the fabric.

I believe you can use DCFM to help out with this - have you looked into that?

Don't you want to have two fabrics? Why?

Looks good!

If you add more hosts you should implement zoning.
