This exam tests knowledge of Fibre Channel switch configuration of advanced features such as Fibre Channel Routing, FCIP, Access Gateway and Brocade Virtual Fabrics. It also tests knowledge of SAN management and monitoring using tools such as MAPS, Flow Vision, and Brocade Network Advisor.

This exam supports the Brocade Professional SAN Administrator 2017 certification requirements.


Candidates should be able to demonstrate the following competencies:

Know and understand advanced SAN technologies

  • Define the advanced SAN functions of NPIV, FCR, Virtual Fabrics, and FCIP

Implement a SAN solution

  • Configure Fibre Channel Routing (FCR) by configuring routing; configuring fabric IDs; configuring or modifying LSAN zones; enabling or modifying router port cost and shortest IFL; enabling and configuring EX_Ports; differentiate routing topologies
  • Configure FCIP by configuring circuits and tunnels; hot code load (HCL), and Ethernet ports
  • Configure Virtual Fabrics by configuring and enabling virtual fabrics; configuring base fabrics and XISL use; creating, deleting or modifying logical switches
  • Configure Access Gateway configuring N-Port trunking; configuring or modifying port groups; configuring and implementing failover/failback policies; differentiate and implement policy settings

Monitor and manage a SAN solution

  • Use BNA to identify fabric and configuration issues; monitor and evaluate current or historical performance behavior

Know and understand SAN products and solutions

  • Define the advanced hardware concepts of FCIP
  • Define and explain advanced features and capabilities of FCR, Virtual Fabrics, FCIP, Access Gateway, and Fabric Vision

Enhance a SAN solution

  • Use MAPs to enhance a solution by configuring MAPS policies, rules, and actions; configuring Fabric Performance Impact; importing, monitoring and interpreting Flow Vision flows; interpreting MAPS CLI dashboard; interpreting BNA MAPS dashboard widgets; implementing MAPS actions
  • Use Flow Vision to enhance a solution by configuring Flow Monitor to diagnose performance issues; configuring Flow Generator flows to test infrastructure prior to deployment; use Flow Monitor to identify devices causing fabric congestion
  • Optimize FCIP circuit throughput with compression and bandwidth manage techniques; FCR routed packet flow. Troubleshoot and repair a SAN solution
  • Isolate faults by identifying and report performance issues; validating FC-FC routing; configuring Flow Mirror flow to capture traffic flows; using ports statistics and Fabric OS tools to locate bottlenecks; using Flow Monitor Fabric Dashboard to resolve end-to-end flow issues
  • Evaluate and repair connectivity issues; resolve faulty links and slow draining devices


This exam is designed for storage administrators, SAN administrators, system administrators, SAN architects, systems engineers, and SAN operators that are involved with configuration, change management, maintenance, monitoring, configuration, tuning and optimization related to Brocade SAN advanced features.
