Re: Brocade Director 48000 Issues



because error messages might differ between Fabric OS versions, the version you are running is somewhat important.


1) If you use this port in both a "DID, PID"-zoning and wwn-based zoning it will be zoned with "session based zoning". This is software zoning.


2) You got some problems with port 160. Run portstatsshow, sfpshow, etc and troubleshoot further. The switch has changed because a threshold has been surpassed. See "switchstatuspolicyset".


By the way, I found details about this in the "Fabric OS Message Reference" document.
