Automatic neighbor node discovery

When you connect a switch to a Brocade VCS Fabric mode-enabled switch, the Brocade VCS Fabric mode-enabled switch determines whether the neighbor also has Brocade VCS Fabric mode enabled. If the switch has Brocade VCS Fabric mode enabled and the VCS IDs match, the switch joins the Ethernet fabric.

Refer to Configuring a Brocade VCS Fabric for information about changing the VCS ID.
