Re: DC04 Warning message

Odd, you're just stating something.

But according to my tarot cards you are looking for advise what to do next.

The c2-1010 tells you there is something wrong with the blade in slot 2.

If you can powercycle the blade or get it replaced

Re: DC04 Warning message

Hi there,

the output of command errdumpall may provide a little bit more of info for that error. As dion posted, powerclycling port blade in slot 2 may fix the issue, but powercycling one of the involved Core blades could also make those errors disappear and it would be less disruptive.

felipon,

to avoid some confusion

--->>>but powercycling one of the involved Core blades......

error message both C2-1006 and 1010 stay indicated a error within S2 = Slot 2

Core Blade are not located in Slot 2

Re: DC04 Warning message

Hi there,

You're right TechHelp24, but very often these messages are reported due to errors in the connection between a port blade (in slot 2 in this case) and one of the Core Blades (slot 3 and 6 in this model). By reviewing errdumpall, we can check that out.

I've no intention to discuss a long, but Honestly, I am not sure why you use here this terminology "very often"

As per my opinion that hear to me you want to say, as Brocade had a higher issue/impact with such error message.

And more less, I'm not sure how many DCX you manage.

However I am quite sure, I've a lot of large customer with very critical environments, where I supported more dozen DCX, and never see or have any similarly problem.

In all the years since Brocade launched DCX Family, I had only at one time a Hardware Issue. Here was necessary to replace a Control Processor in a BRAND NEW DCX, caused by manufacturing defect.

Re: DC04 Warning message

Hi there,

I did not mean that these events occur very ofter (my bad If I hinted that...), but when they appear, are often preceded by C2-5825's which report errors in the communication between Port Blade and Core Blade.

errdumpall will report more info regarding the cause of the C2-1006 and C2-1010.
