E-Port (segmented,incompatible,(Unknown incompat))

Hello,

I'm trying to connect 2 brocade switches over the fiber. 3800 & 2800.

This is dump from 3800:

fabric.ops are the same, but switches refuse to join the fabric.

Thanks!

Re: E-Port (segmented,incompatible,(Unknown incompat))

Hi Mike,

Send the output of the command "fabstatsshow". That will give you a clue as to why the fabrics won't join.

Since these are older switches, my first guess would be the PID formats are incompatible. But let's see the output before we jump the gun.

Sincerely,

Curt

Re: E-Port (segmented,incompatible,(Unknown incompat))

The two "configshow"s indicate both are using PID format 1.

I see "broc_3800_2" has fabric.ops.mode.longDistance: 0, while "broc_2800" has fabric.ops.mode.longDistance: 1.

Also, is any zoning configured on "broc_2800"? I thought the "switchshow" would have shown no zoning configuration in effect. If it is zoned, and the two switches' configurations do not match, that would also cause a segmented error.
