SIM 5.1 and FC switch MIB information

SIM 5.1 and FC switch MIB information

HP SIM 5.1 is reporting HP c-class blade system FC switch errors about 30-50 times in day.

But data from switch is not in right format.

I think there is no correct MIB in SIM, and there is no MIB files with newest firmware.

Switch is c-class embedded 4gb Brocade.

Any ideas to find correct MIB, or something else?

Re: SIM 5.1 and FC switch MIB information

Hi,

Having the same issue here, same hardware (c7000 with Brocade SAN switches.)

I was trying to filter out this event with the automatic event handling but I wasn't successful in only filtering something with keywords: connUnitPortStatusChange

Any help would be appreciated.
Maybe I can successfully use event handling when the correct MIB is loaded?

Re: SIM 5.1 and FC switch MIB information

after speaking with HP, and they reviewed the logs and suggested to reboot it and see if it occurs again. So after rebooting it last weekend, the error has not re-occured. however its only been a week, i will update should it occur again.

Re: SIM 5.1 and FC switch MIB information

Hmmm... i'm quite sure that the error messages will stay after a reboot.. (at least in my case.)

Please let me know your experiences.
I get these messages after rebooting a blade (which causes the FC port to go down and up again)

Re: SIM 5.1 and FC switch MIB information

"Mib data does not match the trap, make sure the latest version of the MIB is registered." Appears because switch send 3 variables, but in mib files defined only 2 variables for this trap.

I did next things to correct it:
1. Open fa-mib40.cfg
2. Found connUnitStatusChange TRAP-TYPE
3. Change VARIABLES ... to VARIABLES { connUnitPortStatus, connUnitPortState, connUnitPortName }
4. run "mxmib -a fa-mib40.cfg"

After that variable description seems correct

Re: SIM 5.1 and FC switch MIB information

To resolve the issue perform the following actions.

Edit the fa-mib40.mib as explained below

1) Edit the fa-mib40.mib file currently being used.

( It will be under c:\program files\HP\systems insight manager\mibs )

Change the last entry in the file on the VARIABLES line from: +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


connUnitPortStatusChange TRAP-TYPE

ENTERPRISE fcmgmt

VARIABLES { connUnitPortStatus, connUnitPortState }

DESCRIPTION

"The overall status of the connectivity unit has changed.

Recommended severity level (for filtering): alert"

::= 6



+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

TO: [you will notice the addition of the connUnitPortName ]:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


connUnitPortStatusChange TRAP-TYPE

ENTERPRISE fcmgmt

VARIABLES { connUnitPortStatus, connUnitPortState, connUnitPortName }

DESCRIPTION

"The overall status of the connectivity unit has changed.

Recommended severity level (for filtering): alert"

::= 6

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

2) Save the file.

3) Once this is done, go to command prompt & go to following path

( c:\program files\HP\systems insight manager\mibs\ )

Run the following commands.


mcompile fa-mib40.mib
mxmib -d fa-mib40.mib
mxmib -a fa-mib40.cfg



With the changes stated and commands run, the variable connUnitPortName will show correctly. Also, the connUnitPortName variable will send an empty string by default. You would need to assign the port name to all the switch ports to implement this feature on a port.


Let us know the results.

Re: SIM 5.1 and FC switch MIB information

mcompile fa-mib40.mib will overwrite fa-mib40.cfg with newly compiled one, doesn't it? So all changes we made would dissapear.

In my case it was not necessary to run mcompile and mxmib -d, i just add new variable to fa-mib40.cfg and run mxmib -a fa-mib40.cfg

Re: SIM 5.1 and FC switch MIB information

I recently set up SIM 5.3 on two separate servers on two identical sites, and was seeing the exact same event reports against four HP StorageWorks 4/8 SAN switches (two at each site).

I've just followed Mahesh's instructions precisely, i.e. editing, then recompiling to generate a new fa-mib40.cfg file, then deleting the old one with mxmib -d and implementing the new one with mxmib -a.

Subsequently when checking the SAN switch events through the SIM GUI, all the connUnitPortStatusChange events that were listed previously have disappeared.

Perfect! Thanks Mahesh.

Hi Simon,

Good to know the issue is resolved after following the steps.

How about Assigning some points !!!!!!

Cheers,

Re: SIM 5.1 and FC switch MIB information

Mahesh, I would gladly assign points but I can't see how. I think it may be limited to only the thread originator, unless you can show me otherwise.

Re: SIM 5.1 and FC switch MIB information

i received this error again about 6months later, implemented the fix as decribed by using mcompile and mxmib -d then mxmib -a on fa-mib40.mib/cfg and it worked, removed the events from the sim server automagically.
