VCM/OA issues, "no communication"

So I logged into the VCM this morning, from the OA, and I see these errors: "The domian is incapable of managing its contained VC components" and in the enclosure status on the OA it says that overall and VC status is failed. Every defined network, uplink and fabric is showing as either unkown or degraded. Yet, everything that was already setup seems to be working just fine. I updated the OA firmware (the FCM is already up to date) and redefined the domain IP settings but I can't think of anything else to try. I've been on hold with HP for roughly an hour at this point, so I figured I'd try other options. Anybody have any ideas?

Seems to be an issue. Engineering is working on it. I expect an answer and Customer Advisory with workaround shortly.

Tried this?


HP Support Document ID: c02720395




I had same scenario, degraded networks/uplinks and sync issues between VC primary and standby.

After removing DNS server info in OA for bay 1 and bay2 (and rebooting VC modules) everything worked.

We have also analyzed the problem and put a process in place to get you helped until something permanent is ready.


1. Please log a call to support and make sure you have the VC support file available for support.


2. ISS Global Competency Center (GCC) is fully aware of this DNS issue and knows how to recognize this problem in the VC supportdump. In case you also have another issue they have the expertise to analyze the VC support file and help you further.


I will also post when a permanent fix is in place.
