Dear Sun Managers,
                           Thanks to Carl [] for his response:

"We did use the Multipack-FC with Brocade 3200 switch. Sun multipack only supports FC-AL, so you 
can not use Fabric switch but quickloop. In quickloop mode, you can use Fabric Assistant to 
zoning your multipack."

I am investigating Quickloop, which is an additional software module. We will probably purchase
a Brocade SilkWorm 3800 16 port switch to attach our Sun Storedge Multipack-FC devices.
