How are you adding the switch to the fabric? Are you just plugging them in while they are both turned on? If so, try turning the new switch off, plug it in to the existing fabric, and then power it up. I have had some quirky problems with adding switches to fabrics, but that has always worked for me. Hope this helps...

I found the solution, but don't quite understand. On the original switches Fabric Ops Mode, Extended distance was set to 1 (On) although the swithes were in the same rack.I had to set Extended fabric to 1 on all three switches before they would combine. Interestingly only one switch had the extended fabric license
