mp8000 switch won't come up

We accidentally mixed up the FCOE sfp's and the Fiber Channel sfp's and the switch did not come up. We switched them into the appropriate slots, but the unit still does not come up.

From the "Switch Events"

Error Switch set to faulty, rc=20015

Warning Switch status changed from HEALTHY to DOWN.

We can log in, but can't change anything from cmsh i.e. config t; interface tengigabit 1/17 gives an error.

Which is?

And maybe more important, do you have an (hardware)supportcontract, If so call your vendor to get them in on it.

Re: mp8000 switch won't come up

The error message is not very helpful. See below. The unit is brand new out of the box. It should be on warranty. From what I hear, the unit needs to be serviced?

Were you able to resolve this? We are having a similar issue with a 7500e switch.
