Hello,
Can a Brocade ICX-7750 switch and a VDX-6740 be in a Brocade MCT (Multi Chasis Trunk) cluster together? In other words does the VDX switch series support the Brocate MCT achitecture?
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

this are two different plattforms and can't work  MCT.
The VDX  uses Logical chassis Mode .
Extreme  VCS Logical Chassis allows organizations to manage an entire VCS fabric as a
single switch, enhancing the overall availability and reliability of the network. This single
point of management eliminates the need to manually configure and manage each
switch, simplifying management, lowering operational costs, and reducing configuration
errors. In addition, it enables organizations to push software upgrades across the fabric
with a single command, accelerating deployment. VCS Logical Chassis also provides a
single view of the fabric, allowing centralized monitoring and troubleshooting that
minimizes time to repair network issues ....

Hope that helps

Regards

Thanks for the reply Michael!

So I guess that  the VDX switch can only be an MCT client if it's in an MCT environement.

Hi,

yes as 6740 supports LACP. 
if you have  already a MCT cluster pair   you can not add a third device to this cluster. You can build an addidinal cluster pair only.
You can build a VCS fabric with VDX  and connect via LAG to the MCT envirement.
