SAN Switch reboots constantly

Hi

We have a SAN Switch 2/16 brocade 3800 (HP product number 287055-B21) firmware 3.2.1.c, which reboots constantly

When this switch is starting, shows this messages:


login: admin
Password:  passed.


Running Port Register Test .... passed.


Running Central Memory Test ... passed.


Running CMI Test .............. passed.


Running Turbo RAM Test ........ passed.


Running CAM Test ..............Feb 19 20:06:22
Panic: INCONSISTENT - pt0: cmi err, 0x42, 0x80000000

    CRITICAL DIAG-CAMINIT, 1, CAM Test, pass 1,
Pt0 (Bm0.0) Failed to Init: port not active,
Err# 223B


 FAILED.


then the switch reboots. I disconnected the cables power, namely this switch is power off.


This switch is connected in a fabric mode.

Is this a hardware error ? If I disconnect all FC cables connected to switch and then start it, is it possible fix the issue ?

Please, provide any clues according your experience.

Thanks in advance

Re: SAN Switch reboots constantly

Hey!

 

Are you seeing those messages through the serial port?

 

I presume the switch is not working, so I don't see why not you could try to disconnect FC cables/SFPs and see if it boots up.

 

I wonder what this CAM test actually tests and what "Pt0 (Bm0.0) Failed to Init: port not active,"could indicate.

http://community.brocade.com/thread/5106 has almost same error, but no conclusion if it really was a faulty motherboard.

OK. Maybe you would get some more messages through the serial port, but probably about the same.

You can try a factory reset from serial / recover via boot menu. But most likely something is broken.
