WARNING, brocade8Gb, Port 17 Faulted because of many Link Failures

Hello,

I am having

WARNING, brocade8Gb, Port 17 Faulted because of many Link Failures

and when I display switchshow I get

17  17   011100   idN8   Port_FltFC  Disabled

for port 17 which is connected to IBM storage V3700.

The light of this connected cable on the switch is amber but when I remove the sfp together with the same cable to another same switch there is no error.

Note that it is a Blade Switch.

Kindly advise.

Thanks,

Seevendy

Hi there,

This is usually a hardware issue, so you should check/replace the SFP, cable and/or storage SFP. If you re-enable the port or reseat the SFP, it will probably become online again, but the issue could reoccur at any time.

Rgds,
