fabric segemented: incompatibility

I'm trying to connect an older 2/8 switch to our existing 4/16. However, I get an error: :port 9, incompatible flow control parameters".

I've opened up a case with HP, but not ecstatic with the vagueness of the replies I'm getting.

I've tried this in multiple ports on the 2/8 switch, and get the same error.

One of the things I've come across is that this may be cause by having different domain ids on the switches. However, all 4 of my existing switches in my two fabrics have different DIDs: 1-4. I've manually set the 2/8 to domain id 5.

Question: Are the switches in a fabric supposed to share a single domain id?

Any other hints?

Thanks!

Jeff

Hi Jeff,

No. All switches in a fabric must have a different domain ID...

Have you tried fixing the port speed on both switches to match ?

Cheers,

Fixed it by changing the PID to 1, to match the existing 4/16 switch.
