Error on Brocade M48 Director

Hi there

I get the error listed below when I SSH in to the Director.

The initial problem was experienced when we tried to access the Director via the webtools.

I then attempted to SSH in to the switch. At log on, I get the error and am only able to use the help command. Any other of the help topics give me the error that is listed.

I've checked all over the web but I am unable to find something related to this.

Error :

cp1 login: SRM

shmInit: shmget failed: No space left on device

ipcRawInit: pam_auth:24258  shmInit failed for 3724

Please change passwords for switch default accounts now.

Use Control-C to exit or press 'Enter' key to proceed.

Password was not changed. Will prompt again at next login

until password is changed.

Re: Error on Brocade M48 Director

it seems that the CP is running out of space.

please execute 'df' and 'memshow' to see where could the lack of space be located.

Hi there

Thanks for the reply.Unfortunately we can't execute any commands. We are only able to execute help and then when the help options come up and we try any of those options, we get the same result above, No commands want to execute. I'm at a complete loss.

Zane,

--->>>I get the error listed below when I SSH in to the Director.

are you able to get successfully login via simple telnet ? i.e. with hyper terminal.

Re: Error on Brocade M48 Director

Hi there

My apologies. I got my wires crossed. We are unable to SSH to the Director due to security reasons for the client as port 22 is blocked. We telnet to the box and this is the result. My apologies once again.

Re: Error on Brocade M48 Director

Thanks Felix !!! This looks to be the most reasonable reason for the error.
