Connection Error on IBM labled Brocade 300

Hi,

I  have a IBM labled Brocade 300 Switch directly connected to a EMC  Symmetrix fabric (Brocade port 0,1,2,3) and directly connected to 3 IBM  x5 Servers (Brocade port 4,5,6). The fibre cables are plugged with its  LC connector into the SFP of the switch. The SFPs are taken from the box  with which the switch was coming. There are no other ones...

The  problem is now: The IBM x5 server ports (Brocade port 4,5,6) show a  light is coming in. But they never get a synchrionziation finished, not  even started. The EMC ports (Brocade port 0,1,2,3) at the switch try to  sync, show also the status "In_Sync" but never finish succesfull.  Sometimes G-Port status is coming and disappearing again after few  seconds.

Any  ideas, suggestions? May I deliver more information about that switch,  topology or settings? I enabled and disabled several times certain  ports, but had no success on that...

Thanks in advance.

Re: Connection Error on IBM labled Brocade 300

1.did you check the tx-rx part?

2. did you do a rmdev/cfgmgr on IBM hosts?

3. which OS is there ?

4.tryo to upgrade the FOS or simply try reboot the SW , if you can.

I understand IBM servers need rmdev/cfgmgr

but EMC  ports should come on line and do a F-logi

could you put the output of portshow, portloginshow, switchstatusshow, errdump,

Re: Connection Error on IBM labled Brocade 300

Hi hemant,

I would like to respond to your questions after your list:

1. If you mean with that question to check where the lights are and where not - I did. That should fit. The lighted part in SFP is plugged to the dark part of LC connector and so on.

2.  no I didn't

3. there is no OS

4. I rebooted the switch. My problem is still there. Unfortunately... Can/Should I upgrade FOS 6.3.0 ?

Towards the data you were requesting. Just to remember the topology:

Port 0 -> EMC 1 Director 10, Fx

Port 1 -> EMC 1 Direcor 9, Fy

Port 2 -> EMC 2 Director 10, Fx

Port 3 -> EMC 2 Director 9, Fy

Port 4 -> IBM x5 Server 1

Port 5 -> IBM x5 Server 2

Port 6 -> IBM x5 Server 3

Re: Connection Error on IBM labled Brocade 300

In errdump:

2010/09/06-06:04:35, , 27, CHASSIS, ERROR, IBM_2498_24E, Port 0 port faulted due to SFP validation failure. Please check if the SFP is valid for the configuration.

Try to check the SFP .

Also the prots are U ports. The ports are not be able to a PLOGI/FLOGI.

You have to do an RMDEV & CFGMGR as this is AIX server.

Also pls log a call with SW vendor to check the SFPs.These are not proper for the SW.
