Brocade 3800 Help

Hi everyone, I am new on the Brocade 3800 Fabric. I am trying to get to the command line to run "fanshow" command. How do I bring up the command prompt after I bring up the webtool.

I need to check the fans to see which one is bad. I click on the fan icon but that doesn't open any window.

One of the fan is bad, I need to find a way to know excatly which one and on which fan tray so that I can replace it.

Thanks again everyone for your assistance

Why not just ssh or telnet into the switch directly to get to the command line? PuTTY, Secure CRT, and any number of other terminal emulators will get you there.

Re: Brocade 3800 Help

Hi guys,

Thanks to everyone for going out of your way to assist.

We work in a classfied area. All I can get to is the Switch Explorer- Windows Internet Explorer.
I am using the ipaddress on the Url to get to the fabric. I tried to telnet to the fabric but I can't.
I am wondering if I can get to the command line from this Switch Explorer screen or is the a way to get to the comand line from here?

Thanks again for your assistance and patience everyone
