switch status shows disabled

hi ,

when i type the "switchshow" command in an HP sw san 4/32 switch , i get the following display.


admin> switchshow
switchName: cftswitch1
switchType: 32.0
switchState: Offline
switchMode: Native
switchRole: Disabled
switchDomain: 191 (unconfirmed)
switchId: fffcbf
switchWwn: 10:00:00:05:1e:02:8d:53
zoning: OFF
switchBeacon: ON

Area Port Media Speed State
==============================
0 0 id N4 No_Sync Disabled
1 1 id N4 No_Sync Disabled
2 2 id N4 No_Sync Disabled


my question to all you folks is why is the state showing diabled ??

FYI version command gives the following details

admin> version
Kernel: 2.4.19
Fabric OS: v5.0.1b

Hi,

The ports may have been accidently disabled.
Try "Enabling" the ports and check with the
config again.

Thanks,

Don't forget 2 assign points if it works :)
Nothing is too small to know, and nothing is too big to attempt.

hi Nameesh ,

i think you cant enable the ports when the switchrole is diabled .

thanks and regards

Re: switch status shows disabled

workaround is to disable POST by the command: diagDisablePost. The switch will skip POST and will come up enabled.
this issue will be address with future firmware release
