Re: Fabric OS Rev?

We're running 4.0.2b and it's running great. 176 days uptime and the last time they went down was due to the upgrade to current rev.We are currently looking at upgrading to 4.1.1 in October to fix this issue and take advantage of a few new features.

Sure. Just type root as the user instead of admin and you can login as root. When you changed your password the first time you logged in you would have changed the root password also. Let me know if you have trouble getting the root password.

4.1 is the way to go. Besides being stable, also has hotcode load and reduced RSCN's = less fabric reconfigurations when things change in the fabric.Pointy
