Interconnect Switch "Error dancing through process 94"

To anyone who may be able to help me with this problem. Recently I installed a SAN Connectivity kit to a set of HP Gbe2 Interconnect Switch. After the install and reboot of the switch the error below appears and the switch continously reboots itself. Has any one ever seen this problem? I have loaded the latest firmware and os for the switch but still no luck.
GEA initialized for unit 2 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . DONE

Re: Interconnect Switch "Error dancing through process 94"

Daniel,
As far as I know, we haven't seen this panic before.

Two questions:
1. I see the firmware is version 2.20. Did you upgrade the boot code to 2.20 also?

2. If you remove the SAN cube, do the panics stop?

Regards,

Re: Interconnect Switch "Error dancing through process 94"

Was there a resolution to this problem? We have exactly this problem subsequent to upgrading from 2.2.0 to 3.0.1. As far as I know both boot and firmware revs are the same although we may have upgraded the firmware before upgrading the boot code. We tried removing the SAN cube to no avail.

A supplementary, should the switch keep rebooting as above is it OK to leave the switch in place to provide power to the SAN backbone because at the moment we have removed the switch and all blades are running on a single active HBA.

Another supplementary, is there a way of resetting factory switch settings without recourse to a CLI.
