Currently, after completing 3 out of 4 you gets the title Brocade Distinguished Architect! Not that many certificates left to take actually before I can complete another track. Most of the remaining ones are labeled accreditations, which are unpro ctored tests one does at home.

When an Access Gateway is exclusively connected to non-Fabric-OS-based switches, it will not show up in the agshow output on other Brocade switches in the fabric.

Pearson Vue? Turns out no. Back to the subject, how nice was it to find out that I passed? Then I pretty quickly forgot about it. All in all it feels pretty awesome to have the certificate! It took a pretty heavy amount of studying. I think maybe now I got the courage to go for the designer one as well!
It felt like I was plowing through them pretty fast but after some questions the speed dropped significantly and I started to have trouble focusing.
But it is free. For the BCFA they had virtual class rooms for this nutshell — looks like they might have changed this now and recorded it.
One avenue less to ask questions. This would be the next logical step for me. Why not huh? Right now I just feel like getting myself into the next Malaz book by Ian C. Esslemont — Stormwielder , supposedly about Greymane! I mean the exam is in questions and the answers are multiple-choice one. Or the negatives?
Read the material once or twice, made notes. Or how do you do your studying? Write them down and think about each. Why not? What parts about it do you not understand, are there any foggy parts, etc. Maybe if you imagine a presentation like in school and you have to tell somebody about this specific feature. What would you go over?
Two weeks left for me now. My brain is not going to function very well after the test. Here is one as an example. A bit quiet here. The free material does not go through the virtual fabrics and the exam objectives does not mention them specifically. FAQ on Virtual Fabrics. You can find this guide in lots of places but it is in the exam objectives in the link above.
It is what it says it is — a way to create independent and logical fabrics and switches that you can use to segment your SAN. It does not require a license. A Logical Fabric has its own independent instance of fabric services, name server, zoning database, and so on.
A logical switch needs a fabric id. Default is but can be changed. Same FID cannot be used for same logical switch in the same chassi. You move ports from the default to the new switches. DCX uses bit addressing. Means that that part of the PID does not always indicate a port area. Increases limit of NPIV, support loop devices. One base switch per chassi, on DCX platforms the default cannot be the base switch.
You connect the base switch to other base switches and then the other logical switches with the same FID merge. By default the logical switches are enabled to use XISL. Normal ISL have a lower cost. Except of course for the FC routers that bridge the networks. Define several logical switches inside a physical.
You can with FOS 7. Disabling port! The crossport for xge0 is xge1 and for xge1, the crossport is xge0. Configure minimum and maximum rates on an FCIP circuit.
The idea is that then you can use ARL to configure minimum half of the shared link on each of the circuits from the FCIP router to the IP router, and a max of the whole one. There, easy to explain in words :d. This has many names.
Basically what it does is that it lets you zone devices in two separate fabrics without merging them. Integrated Routing — is a licensed feature that lets you run FCR on a port that is in a normal port in a normal switch or port blade so not in a dedicated router switch or router blade.
Translate domains also xlate domains…. The FC router has a pool of wwns and proxy ids that it assigns to devices. Basically a host that wants to communicate with a target in another fabric communicates with a proxy WWN in its own fabric so the FC router is like a middle man that passes frames back n forth. Expect to do this this whole week but gradually weave in more BCFP stuff. And quite often the pages referenced by Brocade were just one page in the middle of a chapter.
Page 80 is port numbering schemes for various blades or Forward Error Correction. For example page does not exist in FOS admin or is empty in FCIP Admin guide , in both real page counters and the numbers on the pages in the book. This means the numbers under Real are the ones pointing to the right pages.
Firmware upgrades are the same phew. Two pages per slide. I still have material from my old so that one works. But the material that is given for free now has 0 access rights so it does not work on the Kindle.
The BCFA 16G beta course material is also available , probably a good idea to read up on both and do a little rehearsing. The newer versions are not available if you have a registered account on my.
In the meantime some are available on for example HP. And the HP Release notes for 7. Actually it looks like the documents available are quite up to date. There is however a document in the manuals link above that explains that there have been some changes to some of the Brocade Documents. This might be worth checking out. The conclusion of this little exercise is that the material available is currently good enough for me. If you try to open this with evince default. Download the. Just threading along here with the material, slowly but steady.
The certification I have signed up for the free one I mentioned in an earlier blog post. I passed! Just took the BCFD brocade certified fabric designer exam two days ago. Some tips: Bring some water and food. Good exam, but I am really tired of exams and certifications for now! OK, did the exam. Took 2.
