moved MSL5000 to new switch; now 'mc' gets error

moved MSL5000 to new switch; now 'mc' gets error

Old 2GB, 8-port switch,
already ISLed to another 2gb switch on port 7.
Switch was fully populated, with the MSL tape (i.e., e1200) in port 6.

We now wanted to add a new 8/24 switch to the fabric.
To free up a port to make the ISL between the two, we connected the e1200 thusly:
disconnect from port 6 on the OLD
connect to port 10 on the new
using a different cable.
The new SFP is an 8GB.

Then made the ISL old,6 --> new,11.

I did 'insf -e' ,ioscan' , and 'ioscan -fn'
and know that I am using the correct device name,
but when do a 'mc -r DIMS' , I get error.



Pine3 ## ioscan -fn | grep -e autoch -e rac
... autoch 1 0/2/1/0.1.6.255.0.0.0 schgr NO_HW DEVICE COMPAQ MSL5000 Series
... /dev/rac/c11t0d0
... autoch 3 0/2/1/0.3.10.255.0.0.0 schgr CLAIMED DEVICE COMPAQ MSL5000 Series
... /dev/rac/c6t0d0
((((((
the following is a second MSL5000 on another switch,
which had been moved from port 6 to port 4 on another switch and which works
... autoch 2 0/5/2/0.12.4.255.0.0.0 schgr CLAIMED DEVICE COMPAQ MSL5000 Series
... /dev/rac/c4t0d0
... autoch 0 0/5/2/0.12.6.255.0.0.0 schgr NO_HW DEVICE COMPAQ MSL5000 Series
... /dev/rac/c22t0d0
))))))

So, the /dev/rac/c11t0d0 NO_HW is the OLD path, fabricID 1, port 6 .
New device is /dev/rac/c6t0d0, fabricID 3, port 10 .
/dev/rac/c4t0d0 is the other MSL on fabricID 12, port 4 .


Pine3 ## mc -p /dev/rac/c6t0d0 -q
... ERROR: 0x2 Not Ready : 0x48d Unknown Additional Sense Code


The other MSL on another swith works fine:

I know we are using the correct device names.

Any ideas.

Re: moved MSL5000 to new switch; now 'mc' gets error

Well, I tried rebooting the E1200,
but that did not help.

Then, I connected to the MSL, itself, via Internet Explorer.
When I TRIED TO MANAGE it
it said:
... The library is not ready
... -- The library is in menu mode.

It would not let me do anything.
SO, we had inadvertently, left it in menu mode.

Could that be the problem?

I'm working remotely, so have no physical access
and cannot try this until tomorrow or Monday.

OK
NEVER MIND.

It was in MENU on front panel.
Another person had physical access and cleared the menu.
NOW it works as expected.
