Class 3 Frames discarded

On the ISL's between a Brocade 7600 and a Brocade 48000 I am seeing a few (100-300) "Class 3 frames discarded" when I do a porterrshow. I am not getting any other errors. How concerned should I be about the errors and what exactly do they indicate? The Brocade 7600 is running FOS v6.0.0b and the 48000 is running v5.3.0d.

siseminger,

i assume this erroris caused by a different FOS rel. beetwen v5.3.x and 6.x.

if you have access, upgrade the 48K to same or higher release as v6.x or both 7600 and 48K.

Re: Class 3 Frames discarded

I had thought of the FOS versions also BUT EMC specifically requested that Brocade 4800 and Brocade 7600 have these versions of FOS loaded. We deferred to their decision because this is an Invista installation. EMC is looking into this also. Thanks for the reply.
