Hello All,


We have a brocade SAN switch , Model 5480. Today morning we got the Alert as

I am unable to trace what exactly the issue.


Now switch status shows Helathy, can any one give a light on this and share your comments & resolution tips.

Re: Brocade 5480 switch Error

Brocade suggested workaround is, to set the slot in poweroff and the power on.


however since you have a embedded blade Switch, is necessary to set the switch in disable, remove and then reinsert in the slot.


such operation - no matter if the error happean on Slot Class Directors or in this case Embedded Blade - is disruptive, and required a planned maintenance window.


If the error persist, is suggested to open a call with they OEM and procede with replacement.
