We are in the process of upgrading our fabrics to all be 7.4.1d. I'm going through and changing all our passwords for our local users and came across an interesting issue. Wondering if anyone else has seen this and how to fix it (other than logging into each switch to update passwords).
broc6510> distribute -p PWD -d "*"
Error:The switch with domain ID 182 has firmware version <= 8.0.0 and doesn't support receiving PWD data from switch with firmware version >= 8.0.1.
Please remove this switch from distribution list and retry
Appl Primary/Secondary Versions
All the switches are at the same code level. This example is from 6510 to 5470 (blade switch). I also tried this from DCX8510 to DCX8510 with no luck. I tried using the individual domain ID.
I appreciate any assistance.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Please, show us fabricshow output.
When the user database is distributed, it may be rejected by a switch for one of the following reasons:
• One of the target switches does not support local account database distribution.
• One of the target switch’s user databases is protected.
• One of the remote switches has logical switches defined.
• Either the local switch or one of the remote switches has user accounts associated with user-defined roles.

I'm curious as to what I should look at in the fabricshow. It shows all 8 of the switches, but nothing other than the identity from what I can see. I try not to post my IP addresses by request of our security team...
I've never had an issue with distribute before on all my fabrics, so I would agree with the other replies that it seems to be a bug, especially since someone else could replicate it. I appreciate the list of things to look at for rejected distribution (good to note for the future), but the error message given indicates the switch doesn't know its own code level.
I guess I wait for Brocade to patch it...

The defect open for this issue (619351) has been fixed into the latest 7.4.1e FOS release GAd on October 20th 2016.
Attached is the release note mentioning the concerned defect.

Perhaps 7.4.1e should be the minimum FOS level for both source and target switches.
I just had the same error trying to distribute/sync from a 7.4.1d source towards a 7.4.1e.
