These are Compaq 1/16 port switches. I believe they correspond to the Brocade 2000 series. Not sure if they are 2400 or 2800. The fabic os is also old, 2.6.1. I have inherited support for these switches. I have been asked to look into zoning. I discovered that I could not log in to Fabric View, because certificates were never registered by my predicessor. There are web and zoning licenses registered on each switch. I ran the NT_PKI utility which I downloaded from the Brocade web site, retrieved the switch info to a file, forwarded this to Brocade, and got the XML file with the certificates. I need to know if I can register the certificates without interrupting service on the switches. There are no regularly scheduled downtimes for the VMS systems that use these switches for storage, as they are used for development and software conversions. I would be grateful for any insight you could offer.
