4.4.0b firmware

Last week we upgraded our 3900's to this new firmware on advice from Brocade. All went very smooth (as i expected ) but after a few days i noticed a new "feature". (which scared the hell out of me) At least, i think it is a new one because i've never seen it before.

Re: 4.4.0b firmware

Could your Fabric Watch settings have been changed to a lower error thresh hold? Maybe Brocade changed the default to a lower setting and that got changed when you upgraded.I'm not running 4.4 yet, but when we upgrade, I'll let you know if the same happens.

Be sure to upgrade to at least 4.4.0b (watch the "b").

yes, this is a threshold feature <!graemlin:;)>The PortStatus is the value you are looking for, i think. Just set it to 0 for down and marginal.
