3 Ports stucked in G_Port after QOS disabled

Hi All,

I am facing an issue with 3 ports whereby the QOS was disabled automatically during the firmware upgrade from v6.1.0c ---> v6.2.2a but on HDLM its online. On the switch, these 3 ports are flapping heavily. Anyone encountered this before?

errdump:

Re: 3 Ports stucked in G_Port after QOS disabled

This query should be posted under datacentre .

Anyway has QOS been enabled before?

In portshow, alots of errors are there.

could you pls do a portstatsclear on the port and put the output of portshow, portstatsshow, porterrshow , switchstatusshow.

if on HDLM there is no issue, you can ignore the message.

Which are the devices, connected to these ports? Have you checked the FOS compatibility with HBAs and microcodes of the storages befor edoing an upgrade?

In fabriclog it shows :

A1 means Send DIA: After the Switch is granted a Domain_ID, it shall then transmit a DIA SW_ILS request sequence via all ISL other than the Principal ISL


Pssible Value for P,PN are:

P0 Port offline or initial state
P1 Port online

So ur port no 90 shows sometimes P0 means offline or initial state.Also it is in G port. You can do a portdisable/enable.

But there is nothing shown with 107/123 in fabriclog

Re: 3 Ports stucked in G_Port after QOS disabled

--->>> I am facing an issue with 3 ports whereby the QOS was disabled automatically during the firmware upgrade from v6.1.0c ---> v6.2.2a

This is not a issue, no behavior, and not a Bug, but caused due Change in the FOS.

QOS was Enable as default in Fabric OS until rel. v6.2.1

Customer want to Upgrade from 6.1.x to/higher as v6.2.1 brocade reccomended to Disable QOS before start Upgrade, and enable after firmwaredownload is completed.

Since FOS 6.2.2 QOS is Disable by default.

Summary,...

What happened ? With firmwaredownload to v6.2.2a QOS was set as Disable.

If you are satisfied with the responses please mark as 'Answered'.
If not, just let me know I can see to get more info.
I would appreciated if you rate the threads.

Thank you.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Which are the devices, connected to these ports? Have you checked the  FOS compatibility with HBAs and microcodes of the storages befor edoing  an upgrade?

The firmware upgrade was done on Fabric 1 if the issue is with the HBA we would have encountered the same issue after the firmware upgdare on Fabric 2

Re: 3 Ports stucked in G_Port after QOS disabled

Hi Abba,

Yeah I was aware that the QOS will be disabled in v6.2.2 but these ports are flapping heavily and I don't think we can ignore this and the port is still in G_Port but on the server end its online. This is wierd.

Rgds,

Mahen

Re: 3 Ports stucked in G_Port after QOS disabled

Have you done the portstatsclear and then see the portstatsshow? if after that enc-out is increasing, then it points to Media, You can change cable and then if it still increasing then change SFP.

Btw you can do a portdisable/enable to see the ports are F port or not.If the HBAs are a part of AIX systems, do a rmdev and cfgmgr on these HBAs.

<The firmware upgrade was done on Fabric 1 if the issue is with the HBA we would have encountered the same issue after the firmware upgdare on Fabric 2>

Not necessary it will show on both the HBAs .Sometimes it shows

Try nodefind, nsshow command

Multipathing SW is there , so u can do portenable/disable

You can Ignore QOS warning, but try to resolve the G-port issue to F-port.

--->>>...but these ports are flapping heavily...

since ( I'm assuming ) you have don't disable QOS before start firmwaredownload to 6.2.2a, the ports hangs.

My Workaround, you may have to Disable the QOS, Stop those Ports "portdisable" , then restart now "portenable" and enable QOS now.

Hi Abba,

I tried but its not helping the counters keeps on increasing and btw why should I close the thread. We can't simply ignore the counters that are increasing.

I trought that port- disable/enable would help, but apparently is not.
