Brocade Switch Panic Reboot

I had an issue where we were evaluating CA Brightstore SAN managment software. The Collection process of software may have caused our Core switch to reboot. Please let me know if anybody has experienced anything like this.

raylor9355,I do not think that the evaluation CA Brightstore SAN managment software caused any reboot. What of model of Switch you have ? which FABOS Release ? Call trough telnet the command "errShow" and inform.

Re: Brocade Switch Panic Reboot

Depending on the version of FOS that you have, there may be memory leaks that an application using Brocade's API may be exploiting. If you run a switch out of memory, you will likely hit a segmentation fault and the switch will panic and reboot. Be sure to be at the FOS level that CA recommends and has tested for their application.
