Flash monitor issue after FOS 6.2.0a

We recently updated the firmware for our Brocade switches to v6.2.0a. Since then, some, not all, of the switches in p-class chassis are showing marginal flash monitor. Has anyone else seen this and, if so, have you been able to get it fixed?

Excerpt from switchstatusshow command:
Temperatures monitor HEALTHY
Flash monitor MARGINAL
Marginal ports monitor HEALTHY
Faulty ports monitor HEALTHY
Missing SFPs monitor HEALTHY

Re: Flash monitor issue after FOS 6.2.0a

The Flash monitor is the filesystem on the internal flash drive.

If the switches haven't generated any core files since the upgrade, it's pretty safe to remove any core files from the previous FOS versions with the "supportSave -R" command.

Just to be sure, you might want to save them to a ftp server with the supportSave before deleting the files.

The issue ended up being hardware related and HP has replaced the switches. Thanks for your help!
