How to find out the Brocade Switch model Number

. Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Quite simple actually, but not as straightforward as one would expect… I guess it’s part of McData heritage.

Open web browser at http://hostname/SwitchInfo.html

Scroll down till you see in List of Ports: switchType:    xx.x

Use table below to “decipher” the Model series

1.x = Brocade SilkWorm 1000 series
2.x = DS-16B / Brocade SilkWorm 2800 series
3.x = DS-8B / Brocade SilkWorm 2400 series
4.x = Brocade SilkWorm 20x0;
5.x = Brocade SilkWorm 22x0;
6.x = DS-16B / Brocade SilkWorm 3800 Series (Includes parity checking on all paths)
7.x = SCB
9.x = DS-16B2 / Brocade SilkWorm 3800 series
10.x = ED-12000B / Brocade SilkWorm 12000 switch blade
12.x = DS-32B2 / Brocade SilkWorm 3900 series
16.x = DS-8B2 / Brocade SilkWorm 3200 series
17.x =  Brocade SilkWorm 3800VL series
18.x =  Brocade SilkWorm 3000 series
21.x = ED-24000B / Brocade 24000 switch blade
22.x=  Brocade SilkWorm 3016 2GB Embedded Switch for IBM and Intel Blade Servers
26.x = DS-16B3 / Brocade 3850 series
27.x = DS-8B3 / Brocade 3250 series
29.x=  Brocade SilkWorm 4012 4GB Embedded Switch for HP Blade Servers
