Problems with modules be recognized with FCX648-E

We are trying to install a 4-port fiber card in new FCX648-E switches and it doesn't show the ports when we look at the interface list.  The running config has the right module specified but no ports other than the 48 copper ones show up.  Suggestions?

Re: Problems with modules be recognized with FCX648-E

I am assuming you are adding a FCX-4G or FCX-4XG card into the switch.

Please check with a 'show module'  and post the results.  You shouldl not have to reload the switch, however if it is still not appearing give that a go.

Also please post the result of a 'show ver'

Thanks

Hi, I am having the same problem. I tried with 2 new FCX648-E and none of those recognized the FCX-4G card.

Here are the details-

Re: Problems with modules be recognized with FCX648-E

Hi Arif,

     I had a look though the release note but could not find anything for this.  I do suggest you upgrade the switch to 7.2.0.2 code and try again.  If that does not work then please contract the Brocade TAC.

Thanks

Michael.

Re: Problems with modules be recognized with FCX648-E

Thank you Micahel for your suggestion. I did the OS upgrade. I think the OS already recognized that module b4 I did the software upgrade. I just forgot to do the "show media" to view that list. "show module" still doesn't list that module as I expected. I was hoping it should show something like 1/2/1..... etc. Could be that's how it is, as those are combo ports. I can still send traffic thru those combo ports, so the card is working.

Thanks again.
