ISL HP B-series 8/12 SAN switch to an existing Mcdata ED-140M ?

if it’s possible to ISL a new HP B-series 8/12 SAN switch to an existing Mcdata ED-140M Director Switch.  The Mcdata director switch is running 09.08.01.2 code and the Brocade is running v6.2.0d.  Do you recommend it?

We have 8/24 connected to ED-140Ms. 8/24 are running in Interop mode 3 and McData are running Open Fabric mode

Hello

With that FabOS and McData FW versions the best way is to use InteropMode 2 for McDATA Fabric mode on Brocade switch and native fabric mode on McData.

Take a look at Fabric OS 6.2 Administrator’s Guide:
