Refer to HP Quick Specs for the Supervisor-2 upgrade kit part number Refer to C-series Support Matrix for supported switching modules Refer to C-series Support Matrix for supported switching modules These switches must remain on SAN-OS no yes yes no yes no no These switches must remain on SAN-OS This switch must remain on FabricWare MDS 9513 FABRIC-2 MODULE AND 8-Gbps MODULES The MDS 9513 supports two types of crossbar modules, a pair of Fabric-1 modules or a pair of Fabric-2 modules. Two Fabric-2 modules double the active backplane bandwidth to 192-Gbps full duplex per slot required for specific switching modules in the MDS 9513. The following guidelines must be considered: - Fabirc-1 modules are backward and forward compatible with SAN-OS and NX-OS. - Fabric-2 modules are supported with SAN-OS 3.x and NX-OS. If the MDS 9513 is running SAN-OS 3.x, the Fabric-2 module functions as a Fabric-1 module. In order to use the increased bandwidth capabilities of the Fabric-2, the following must be done: o First upgrade the MDS 9513 to NX-OS o Then reload the director. - The 48-port 8-Gbps FC Host-Optimized Switching Module requires NX-OS. It will function with either Fabric-1 or Fabric-2 modules. - The 48-port 8-Gbps FC Performance Switching Module and the 24-port 8-Gbps FC Switching Module requires NX-OS and Fabric-2 modules with the increased bandwidth capability enabled - If you install just one Fabric-2 module, the active slot bandwidth is 96-Gbps full duplex. 6 MDS Multilayer Director & Multilayer Fabric Switches Release NotesHP Cisco MDS 9124 - Fabric Switch Manual
