A customer has an existing M-Series fabric running in McDATA mode. You have proposed a
Brocade DCX 8510-8 to meet their fabric growth requirements.
Which action will achieve a successful integration?
You are designing a SAN using a Brocade DCX 8510-4 that will extend over a distance of 50 km
using native Fibre Channel. You will be using 10 Gbps Wave Division Multiplexing connections.
What is required?
You have been asked to complete a fabric design for three fully populated DCX 8510-8s with FC8-64 blades. The requirements are for 1024 user ports available on the edge with two hops from
initiator to target communications. Which solution would satisfy this request?
There are 25 Brocade 6510s and four Brocade DCX 8510s in a SAN. You are required to
automatically gather the Fabric error messages on a central server. What will fulfill this
You are provisioning storage for a new application and the system administrator cannot provide
you with accurate traffic load data. You want to gather detailed information on the traffic flow from
the new application server to the various storage systems it will access. Which monitoring tool
would you use?
A post-design requirement from a customer is the ability to automatically backup and store switch
configurations. What would you use to do this?
You need to capture an inventory of switches for an existing SAN environment which includes both
Brocade and non-Brocade products. Which application would you use?
A customer is migrating their FICON servers and storage from an M-Series SAN that is end of
lease to a new SAN using two Brocade DCX 8510-8 Backbones with optical ICLs. They also want
to intermix the FICON and zLinux traffic on the same DCX 8510-8 Backbone. What are two
considerations when developing this migration plan? (Choose two.)
You are designing a B-Series fabric to deploy at a customer’s site. Devices on one of the Brocade
switches must be able to access devices within an existing Cisco SAN. Which supported Fabric
OS feature will allow this?
Due to recent cabling issues at a disaster recovery site, you are asked to design a new fabric for
your local data center that will support D_Port functionality on ISLs while using the least amount of
rack spacE. Which hardware will satisfy this request?
