Switch logs message "The last device change happened at " every 1-2 minutes after FOS upgrade to 6.1.2c

Hello!

After upgrading FOS to version 6.1.2c two of my 200E switches began to spam every 1-2 minutes with messages like:

A_sw5:admin> errshow -r
Fabric OS: v6.1.2c               

2009/11/25-19:41:03, , 271,, INFO, A_sw5,  The last device change happened at : Wed Nov 25 19:40:50 2009

2009/11/25-19:40:03, , 270,, INFO, A_sw5,  The last device change happened at : Wed Nov 25 19:39:53 2009

2009/11/25-19:36:48, , 269,, INFO, A_sw5,  The last device change happened at : Wed Nov 25 19:36:35 2009

an so on.

There is no fabric logins/logouts in such a fast manner.

Any ideas please.

Thanks

P.S. Both switches have active NPIV ports becase some Brocade 4020 (in AG mode) are connected to those ports.

P.S.S. AG mode was enabled on all 4020 immeduately after FOS upgrade .

P.S.S.S. I have upgraded not only those two 200E. Six 4020 were upgraded to 6.1.2c also, but there is no such spam from them!

Re: Switch logs message "The last device change happened at " every 1-2 minutes after FOS upgrade to 6.1.2c

SNMP-1008

Message

<timestamp>, , <sequence-number>,, INFO, <system-name>, The last

device change happened at: <string>.



Probable Cause Indicates the last device change time.

Recommended Action Execute the nsshow to view the current device status.

Hello!

A_sw5:admin> nsshow
{

... here go name server records ...

The Local Name Server has 47 entries }

What kind of infromation should I look for in nsshow output ?

Thanks!

Execute the nsshow "to view the current device status"

SNMP-1008 is a Info, and according Brocade Message Reference Manuals another Action is not required.

Hello!

Ok, lets look to nsshow output

First record looks like:

A_sw5:admin> nsshow
{
Type Pid    COS     PortName                NodeName                 TTL(sec)
N    290200;      3;21:00:00:1b:32:08:1e:1e;20:00:00:1b:32:08:1e:1e; na
    FC4s: IPFC FCP
    Fabric Port Name: 20:02:00:05:1e:7f:0a:56
    Permanent Port Name: 21:00:00:1b:32:08:1e:1e
    Port Index: 2
    Share Area: No
    Device Shared in Other AD: No
    Redirect: No

There is "current device status" ?

>> SNMP-1008 is a Info, and according Brocade Message Reference Manuals another Action is not required.

I agree with this. BUT why messages go to log every 1-2 minute from both switches - continuosly?

I have more than 1100 such messages in error log since 24th november. This is not okay.

How can I find  which device is making problem?

this is indead a bit much.

it is a little suspect to me, you wrote:

--->>>...after FOS upgrade to 6.1.2c....

--->>>P.S.S. AG mode was enabled on all 4020 immeduately after FOS upgrade .

I understand it so, before the update, the switches was no in AG mode set, is that correct?

Hello,

I have the same problem. After the FOS update to version 6.2.1.b the 48k produces every minute this mysterious message. I don't find any indication. We have AccessGateways connected too.
