FS8-18, LUNs discovery

I have created CryptoTarget containers and added initiators, and commited the transaction.

Then if issue the command for LUN discovery, it is saying some thing "Operation failed: BES/FS8-18 blade is not present or up"

cryptocfg --discoverLUN CryptoTarget_container_1

Operation failed: BES/FS8-18 blade is not present or up



If i issue of SP status, it says "Operational; Not Online"

cryptocfg --show -localEE | grep "SP state"

        SP state: Operational; Not Online

If i issue the command for the status of the crypto target container, it says "Operation failed: Requested object doesn't exist"
cryptocfg --show -container CryptoTarget_container_1 -stat
Operation failed: Requested object doesn't exist
But if i issue same above command with "-cfg" option, then it shows the configuration of the crypto target container.
But if i issue the command to view the configuration of the crypto target container, it says "EE slot = 0", but actually my EE slot is 9.
cryptocfg --show -container CryptoTarget_container_1 -cfg | grep "EE slot"
EE slot: 0
cryptocfg --show -localEE | grep "EE Slot"
    EE Slot: 9


I am in full confusion.

Please anyone can tell me why it says "blade is not up" when i am trying to discover the LUN, why SP state is "operational, but not online", why it says object not found when i am trying to view the status of a container, and why it is saying slot 0 with one command and slot 9 with another command.

Thank you.

Reason 1; The blade is not Active or Power Up

Reason 2; You have wrong Fabric OS Release.

Re: FS8-18, LUNs discovery

The blade show as Up, and FOS is correct.

I note in the firmwareshow o/p follow

WARNING: The local CP and remote CP have different versions
of firmware, please retry firmwaredownload command.

Have you truncated the output ? But what i missing, ( I don't see  here ) is the Second / Standby CP.

The FS8 blade requiered for some command a Additional License, are all License installed ?

Try the command "slotpoweroff" remove the blade wait One minute, insert the slot now, and try "slotpoweron"

Re: FS8-18, LUNs discovery

Remove please the FCOE10-24

See note below.

FCOE10-24 blade cannot coexist with other AP blades in either the DCX or DCX-4S chassis. If hotplugged
into a chassis with other AP blades, the FCOE10-24 will be faulted and not powered on. If the
FCOE10-24 is already installed in the chassis before any other AP blade and the Ethernet service is
installed, any other AP blade will be faulted and not powered on if hot-plugged. AP blades include the
following:
• FR4-18i
• FA4-18
• FS8-18
• FX8-24
The same scenario applies if a DCX or DCX-4S is powered up. If a FCOE10-24 is the first AP blade
detected, no other AP blade will be powered on. Conversely, if another AP blade is the first detected, an
FCOE10-24 in the chassis will not be powered on. Port blades will be unaffected.
