This Interface (10.5.128.242) has been disabled by the administrator
the Ip address listed is ip of the system where i try to open the webtools. This is happening on all the system i used to open the webtools.
Any help would be appreciated.

it seems that the switch may have the HTTP Access blocked by IPFILTER.
Please, connect to the switch via CLI and execute "ipfilter --show" and review if the Active IPFILTER for IPv4 has line denying HTTP access
Name: NO_HTTP, Type: ipv4, State: active
Rule Source IP Protocol Dest Port Action
1 any tcp 22 permit
2 any tcp 23 permit
3 any tcp 897 permit
4 any tcp 898 permit
5 any tcp 111 permit
6 any tcp 80 deny
7 any tcp 443 permit
8 any udp 161 permit
9 any udp 111 permit
10 any udp 123 permit
11 any tcp 600 - 1023 permit
12 any udp 600 - 1023 permit
If so, you have to modify that IPFILTER in order to enable HTTP back.

Hi,felipon is is right, but mentioned CLI....use an ssh app like "putty" to remotely access the switch by IP or hostname. If you also denied port 22 then you may need to access the switch physically by console cable. I had a similar problem and disabled port 80 (HTTP) because of security concerns....I then had to look at certificate signing for HTTPS.......a bit of a nightmare to get sorted at best of times but we had totally locked down firewall rules for this type of traffic......network engineer v SAN engineer!
By the way, I use Brocade Network Advisor and webtools as much as I can.......no time to remember all those verbose CLI commands.....life is short!
