Re: Brocade SAN switch all series

I have a HP StorageWorks SAN Switch 2/16-EL (B-Series) which is running with Fabric OS (tm) Release v3.2.1b

I have a monitoring tool which is configured with this san switch whioch gives me this alert if i login to switch through CLI/GUI the switch is not collecting any log since last year

My question is this some thing like port offline/online error meggase on OLD SAN switches ?

And I have found some information from SAW related to this error:
http://saw.cce.hp.com/km/saw/view.do?docId=emr_na-c00349852

Melow is the error message i am getting from my monitoring tool:

Mar 09, 2011 01:19:43 UTC WebService (AutomationBus)

Re: Brocade SAN switch all series

Even if this is an old switch, the firmware should be newer.

An older SPOCK document I found on my disk says
firmware version 5.3.2c (Oct â 09)(recommended) for this model.

Hope this helps!

Re: Brocade SAN switch all series

I completely agree on this i have tried already upgrading the firmware but that was not sucessful , no error message also so not able to find the reason for failure

Current firmware:3.2.1b
HOP1:3.2.1c

Re: Brocade SAN switch all series

Have you tried upgrading in incremental steps?
(Going to a 4.x version before the 5.x)

also, it may not be the switch port that's the problem. Maybe it's the device connected to the port, the interface module, or even a loose patch fibre somewhere?
I would have checked the times up against the logs on the attached device.

Re: Brocade SAN switch all series

Hi,

your switch is a Brocade 3800. You cannot use FOS 4.x or higher. The latest firmware for this switch is 3.2.1c
